Fort Worth, Texas: Opening Day Partners is exploring the possibility of renovating LaGrave Field, currently home to the Fort Worth Cats of the United Baseball League, on par with their other ballparks and for an expansion team to join the Atlantic League's upcoming Western Division. If completed, the Fort Worth Atlantic League franchise would play possibly in the 2015 season and be the first Texas-based rival of the Sugar Land Skeeters.[[|]][[|]]
Fredericksburg, Virginia: Bob Hagan, the former president of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, is working with Opening Day Partners to study the impact of a ballpark in the Washington, D.C. suburb. Since Fredericksburg is close to the Potomac Nationals Single-A franchise in Woodbridge, Virginia, they would be required to pursue independent baseball instead of affiliated.[[|]]
Malden, Massachusetts: Boston Baseball Field of Dreams, LLC plans to privately invest $51 million toward a 6,500-seat ballpark in Malden. It is tenatively proposed for a site bound by Commercial, Centre, Canal, and Charles Streets and will include locker rooms for the Malden High School baseball teams.[[|]]
Virginia Beach, Virginia: Virginia Beach Professional Baseball, LLC has been granted conditional approval for an expansion team provided it can secure financing to build a 6,000-seat stadium near the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.[[|]]
