Construction on Polar Park, set to open in 2021 as the home of the Worcester Red Sox (Class AAA; International League), hit a major milestone last night when the team and the city of Worcester held the traditional topping-off ceremony.
The topping-off ceremony is held after the last piece of structural steel is installed on a construction project; workers on the project sign the beam and an evergreen tree is affixed to the beam.
The next big step for the team: the release of new uniforms and caps for the 2021 season.
Here’s a look at the construction progress as of today:
