WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Larry Lucchino is heading to the minor leagues for one more chance to run a baseball team and build yet another ballpark at an age when many ease into retirement.

The 75-year-old three-time cancer survivor moved the Red Sox Triple-A team from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, to Worcester, Massachusetts.

The team built a $118 million ballpark in the central Massachusetts city that will be unveiled for the home opener on Tuesday.

Lucchino says it will look and feel like the city — a lesson he brought with him after working on Camden Yards in Baltimore.
