Here's an interesting article on the stadium and arena master plan for Boston in the 1960s that would've replaced Fenway Park way back then:

How the Boston Garden and Fenway Park almost fell victim to 1960s ‘New Boston’
How different history might have been.


For a brief period of time in the 1960s, local leaders seriously considered a three-pronged plan to replace the Boston Garden, make Fenway Park obsolete, and build a 53,000-seat stadium near South Station.

It was a bold plan by any calculation, showcasing a Boston attitude towards redevelopment that was at its peak during the John Collins mayoral administration when projects such as Government Center and the Prudential Center took shape. It was a time famously dubbed “New Boston.”

This particular version of the plan (shown below) was only a single frame of what became more than 30 iterations of designs to try and build a stadium in Boston over the course of the decade. Saddled by political opposition and bureaucratic infighting, the movement to build a downtown stadium and brand new arena ultimately failed.

Sources: Cardinals-Pirates in play for game at Williamsport, Pa.


...

The Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates are in the process of relocating their August 20 game from PNC Park to a facility in Williamsport, Pa. The game would be part of the annual Little League World Series tournament, and it would be featured on ESPN as part of Sunday Night Baseball. An announcement is expected later this week. Sources have told the Post-Dispatch that such an opportunity was in the works, but that the mechanics of relocating two major-league teams to the LLWS facilities was being worked out.

DKPittsburghSports.com reported Monday morning that the game was set, that the details of the move had been worked out.

Last summer, the Marlins and Braves played a game at Fort Bragg, and Major League Baseball constructed a ballpark for the regular-season game that took place there. In addition to the Little League World Series complex, Williamsport is home to Historic Bowman Field, one of the three oldest ballparks in minor-league baseball. It seats 4,500 and opened in 1926.

The Little League World Series, which opens this year on August 18, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.

Sports and geography collide! The Baltimore Orioles will wear jerseys this Saturday with the Maryland flag in the script and on the bill of the hat, for Celebrate Maryland Day:
