WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The crowd of construction workers, city officials and Worcester Red Sox officials cheered as the last steel beam was hoisted into place by a large crane at Polar Park.
Despite seven weeks of COVID-19 related delays, the ballpark is still on schedule to open in April 2021.
Dr. Charles Steinberg is the owner of the Woo Sox. He spoke on the relevance of the ceremony on Thursday.
"It's a real moment with steel, and it's a metaphor as well, for the strength of this city, the tenacity of this city," Dr. Steinberg said. "Also to get us through the times ahead. We've been having a year unlike any other this year, we gotta keep going."
Regarding whether or not fans will be able to watch from the stands, Dr. Steinberg said "only COVID knows that."
