Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium endangered for no good reason

Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium endangered for no good reason | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
If you’re searching for the real reason why the new owners of the Pawtucket Red Sox padded the announcement of their acquisition earlier this year with the accompanying news that they would move the team from its longtime home at McCoy Stadium, pay a visit to the Dusza-Almeida Post 2339.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 3, 2:22 PM

These articles from the Boston Globe and the NY Times are great explorations of the economic geography of baseball and the place-based traditions that are rooted in having a team to call your own (even if the news is painful to many long-time residents.  There is a lot of anger in Pawtucket at the news that the team is planning to leave McCoy stadium.  This isn’t just a devastating financial blow to the Pawtucket community; for decades, Pawtucket could hang there hat on being home to the PawSox and that communal identity was one of the defining distinctions between Pawtucket and Central Falls.  Now it’ll be just another struggling town.  How will this impact Pawtucket and Providence neighborhoods?

And while plenty of those features may contribute to a town’s unique personality, the top 20 winners in the quirky category take it a step further. One highly ranked town is an unlikely hotbed for Tibetan monks, while another largely forgoes Valentine’s Day to celebrate Charles Darwin instead.
