Can-Am Franchise to Worcester in 2005

Worcester Magazine reports that the defunct Allentown Ambassadors of the Northeast-now-Can-Am League have been bought by an ownership group in Worcester and will begin operating this season. Still to be decided: where they can or will play. One related issue on this point is how the presence of a professional team will affect the availability of the field selected for amateur teams from Babe Ruth level to the various men's leagues.
We welcome the Can-Am League to Worcester - they will succeed there I am confident of that. But let's not punish great amateur programs in the process.
Great to have baseball in central Massachusetts - and let's find a way to have a for-charity benefit tournament among the Rox, Spirit, and the un-named Worcester team.
