Think outside the box. Also, design a ballpark that can be used for other events such as concerts and college sports tournaments.

Create something people will come to see, use the facilities and enjoy the experience.

Sports venue experience should be essential as this is a new stadium in a city having a great opportunity for further growth. What it is NOT, is a city seeking a blueprint of what the Red Sox would like to have built in Boston but on a smaller footprint. Use as much of what is on site and allow the resulting structure to blend into the cityscape. Improve traffic flow and have reasonable parking and connectivity to local transportation.

Given the 'quirks' of Worcester, I would think designing a stadium that fits the city to be of paramount importance. We need no 'try it out because it looks cool.' We need solid experience!

Make it a destination, not just a ballpark!

When in the country, plan by the acre, when in the city, plan by the foot.

"Trick question... I would say as all three are necessary to maximize tax payer and private investment in this project. "

Go with stadium experience.
