This project uses a case study describing how and why Worcester, Massachusetts was unsuccessful in acquiring an Atlantic League (AL) professional baseball franchise. Worcester's experience was then compared to the success of another AL team, the Bridgeport Bluefish. Background research was done on the social impact of sports, survey analysis, and site and design preparation and planning. The authors interviewed city officials, Worcester Telegram writers, and Bridgeport Bluefish representatives. Comparison of the two efforts led to conclusions and recommendations suggesting other alternatives for Worcester that would have successfully brought an Atlantic League franchise here.
