Bob Billington of the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council said yesterday that the final touches of putting the Polar Express Station together at the Depot will be completed early this week and the local recreation of the Chris Van Allsburg holiday classic ready to take off on its first run Sunday afternoon.

November 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET — If the past is any sort of indicator, the Red Sox can go in one of a number of directions in shopping for a new PawSox manager.

Pawtucket has seen four skippers come and go dating back to Buddy Bailey’s dismissal in 2004. In Ron Johnson and Arnie Beyeler, the Red Sox elected to go the internal route – both received promotions from their managerial posts in Double-A Portland. With Torey Lovullo and most recently Gary DiSarcina, the organization chose to cast a net outside the farm system and bring in someone with already set-in-stone connections.
