    Yeah. I was sitting directly across from the scoreboard and didn't realize it until about the 5th inning. I actually didn't even realize the hands of the clock were bats until Aviator_Frank mentioned it.

    I had been wondering what the situation was with the batter's eye. We never saw them roll any sod there, so I figured they planted grass seeds... but it still didn't look like grass on TV and in pictures. Well, here's why... it's not grass. They planted some sort of evergreens there, instead of the grass that was in the renderings.

    I went to took a trip down to Washington yesterday for the game between the Mets and Nats. It was great to finally get to see Nationals Park in person after watching it being built.

    I took a ton of pictures... here are some to start off with. I'll post some more shots tomorrow.

    During the SNY broadcast, the guy who does the 'around the stadium' remotes, (I always forget his name), was sitting in, and explaining the Center Field Restaurant seats. Was after Santana's double to center. He said the seats were comfortable, food was great, but the view was obstructed. He lost the ball as it neared the wall and was unable to follow it and what Milledge was doing. That's not good. Poor design, in my opinion.

    The seats do sound like an ok deal however. They're $67. Of that, $25 is credit towards food or stuff from the team stores. He also added the Nats are considering this plan for every seat in the park.

    I have sat there and I don't know what he is talking about unless he is saying he can't see the field directly on the other side of the wall within 5 feet or so. That is the case with every ballpark that doesn't have a see-through fence.

I wouldn't be surprised if they found a way to move that camera to a lower level.
    The Baseball Tonight anchors mentioned the angle last night during the recap.

    One thing that totally annoyed me about the Met game last night was that behind the plate camera mounted at the top of the stadium. I felt like I was watching games in the upper level reserved at Shea.

    I disagree with that strategy. You would think that it would be better to play the field slightly deeper than normal, because it's easier to come in on a ball and keep it in front of you than to have to turn your head or backpedal on a deep fly.
    Agree. Interestingly, Darling said when he was pitching,he perfered his OF's to play in.
