A's New Ballpark

Looks like its off the chain.  Sexy ass park.  Great idea for the Colosseum.  Captive audience once the Raiders leave (well really now).  

I like it. 

Portland is working on the final stages of their ballpark too.

If that Tampa park actually happens....

 

Prepare for the new teams in Montreal and Portland.

The plants/park on the top of the park is cool/interesting.  It's neat that apparently that'll be open to people when games aren't going on.

I too like what they plan on doing with the coliseum area.

Interesting to hear about the Portland thing.  Hadn't heard of that.

I like the Portland Idea, but there is no fucking way that ballpark is ever built for a MLB team.

It looks like a bad ass AAA park though.  Well minus the video board, which I dont see.

Yeah, it does look small.

From what I read I think its 30k capacity.  

But they wont build a ballpark  with open seating in the outfield.  As lovely as that sounds I cant imagine that actually happening like that.

What do you mean open seating?  Like the grassy areas?  Is that really any different than SRO areas?

Yes - you can sit on the grass.
