Worcester could certainly use the downtown boost from a stadium. Malden wouldn't be a horrible idea either. The site certainly has good transit access...
Worcester has a baseball stadium that is older than Fenway, and where Ted Williams hit his first home run wearing a Red Sox uniform. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig played there, and Casey Stengal coached the Brooklyn Dodgers in a game there.
