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.
Brockton and Worcester have been able to hold onto their teams, Malden might be able to if they can get a good jump on getting the city and the area closely linked with the team especially in a place where there hasn't been baseball before.

The site has bus, rail, and car access and isn't too bad of a walk from the heart of the city...perhaps with the right management they may be able to get it done right.
