Hey, the technology exists so why not turn it into a video game right?
    Aluminum bats and Astroturf should not be used when natural materials are adequate. The "electronic score keeping" devices you mention sound good to me, though. Anything to get rid of the corrupt-a$$ umps.

      Milwaukee Awful

      The roof in Milwaukee is terrible. Even when open it feels constricting. I popped in there on my way back home in Minneapolis from Chicago to catch a Twins game two years ago. They had the damned roof closed on a sunny 60 degree day in April. I was livid. After 15 years here with the godforsaken Metrodome I was craving some outdoor baseball.

      I am so excited about our new park in progress. I work a block away from it and it is fun to watch the progress.

        There's a reason no other ballpark has a fan-shaped roof.
