I'm a fan of independent baseball, but yeah, this is really misleading. What they might say is that it's built to AA specifications.

On the larger issue, should Malden have a professional baseball stadium? I'd love to think that there is enough demand for non-MLB product that these towns might legitimately get some fans going to games. But I doubt very much that there is. Or perhaps, there's enough for Malden, but not also for Lynn. One thing I don't want is baseball becoming associated with monorails as a silver bullet economic development scheme.
