 The city of Pawtucket is taking the PawSox to court.

In an eight-page complaint filed in Rhode Island Superior Court last week, the city alleges The Pawtucket Red Sox Baseball Club LLC failed and refused to comply with the maintenance and repair obligations of their lease of McCoy Stadium. The suit alleges the city is entitled to “significant damages, including the costs of necessary repair, replacement, and other work on the Stadium and its site.”

“This is another unfortunate piece of the Pawtucket Red Sox Saga,” Pawtucket spokesperson Wilder Arboleda told 12 News in an email. “The city of Pawtucket worked hard to keep the Pawtucket Red Sox here, but the long-standing team will no longer be playing here in Rhode Island.”
