Architectural firms competing for a contract to design a minor league baseball stadium in Worcester will pitch their proposals to city officials this week.
Seven companies submitted plans for a baseball park that will host the Red Sox's Triple-A team, which is moving from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, to Worcester.
Worcester City Councilor Morris Bergman said he wants a ballpark with modern features, but a not-too-modern look.
“It should look like it’s always been there,” Bergman said. “That’s always to me the telltale sign of a successful architectural project. It looks like it fits in, and always was there.”
The proposals come about a month after the City Council approved a $100.8 million stadium financing package.
Companies bidding for the contract will interview with city officials on Wednesday and Thursday.
