    Wow, nice park. The front entrance's architecture reminds me of the ticket office at Braves Field. In fact, the whole field, in a way, looks like Braves, with less seats. What's that thing in CF?

      my grandfather used to go there all the time. before he died i remember him telling me about seeing both williams and mays play for the millers. the field had an extremely short right field, something like 250. too bad it was such a small site, really put expansion of the field for housing a major league team out of the question.

        Hey, do you know what the ballpark dimensions were for the whole ballpark? Any clue? I'd like to know, because I'm very curious. This ballpark does have a Shibe Park edge to it.
        My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

        1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

        2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

        3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

        4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

        5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

          I think the right field porch was around 279. Mays and Teddy Williams definitely took advantage of it.

                The guy in the hat probably wishes he could see first base.

                    You're a load of laughs. For the 10000000000th time. I'm older than you.

                    To me it seems stupid to pay good money to sit behind a pole.

                    You on the other hand don't even go to games so what do you know about comfortable parks and good sightlines.

                      You can say all you want about being older than me but i will never believe that. and i am not going to respond to this poster anymore on this thread. lets stay on topic here.This ball park looked like a great place to see a baseball game

                        I was on topic. In my opinion the guy in the hat has a bad seat. For a one level minor league park I'd rather have no poles.

                              like i mentioned before my grandfather was a regular to watch the millers when he was growing up, he passed away eleven years ago but I could speak with my father or some of his older siblings for their second hand stories. I know that by the time even my parents were younger the games were being played at the met in bloomington.
