“You get a facility like this it sparks the imagination of everybody. You get entrepreneurs coming in and opening up businesses. A hotel went up across the street just to help with the traveling team.”

“Ultimately, what we would like to see is that coming to an event at this facility is coming to the downtown area.”

“The ballpark will provide exposure to Malden and give it a chance to be seen on a regional basis as a city that is only going upward and is a hidden jewel.”

“The high school, if they want to, will be able to play their home baseball games at this facility. There will be the ability to have graduation and community events at the park as well. We also see being able to host business meetings as well.”

Q: Do you anticipate there will be spin-off benefits to retailers, restaurants and other Malden businesses in the surrounding downtown area as a result of activity at the ballpark?  Please explain.

Q: Do you know of any studies or have some additional information to support your beliefs that there will be positive impacts on the local business community?

Q: How will the Malden community as a whole benefit from this project?
