Pawtucket Red Sox Statement
The PawSox family is deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of Pawtucket Red Sox President Jim Skeffington last night. Jim died last evening while jogging near his home in Barrington, RI at the age of 73.
Jim was an extremely loyal and charitable man who, in his all too brief time with the PawSox, relished his new role as club president. He enjoyed learning all he could about the PawSox operation and meeting fans, staff, and players.
Jim was committed to keeping the PawSox in Rhode Island and sharing his vision for a new ballpark. He was a true Rhode Islander who was devoted to his family and the entire community at large.
Our condolences go out to Jim’s family and his many friends.
