          Ok, so heres a thought... How could the european stadiums hold up to baseball? could any of them theroreticaly hold a game if MLB decided to do the same thing that they have done in mexico and japan to try and spread the game overseas? does anyone have the ability to try and mock that up?

            I love the Korean stadium. Reminds me of a scaled up Olsen Field (Texas A&M).

            Random fact: Hawaii University's stadium is an Olsen Field clone. They sent representatives to view Olsen Field before they built it.

                    Apparently the Tokyo dome is built next to an amusement park and shopping mall. The whole area has been dubbed "Tokyo Dome City" and it looks like a really cool place to hang out before and after a game.

                      You coasterhead you!

                      I'll outride you on the Brooklyn Cyclone anyday. You'll get so sick of Superman:Ride Of Steel up in Springfield Mass you wish you never got near it!

                      Seriously though, if you're the coaster fanatic your handle suggests, nice to know there's one like me on here. There's few and far between up in Connecticut - where a coaster is something you put a drink on.

                      Now I have two reasons to go visit Japan - Thunder Dolphin and Nagashima-Spaland's "Steel Dragon 2K".

                        Man, seventh inning stretch...to go take a walk up to where that woman is standing and just see forever. That is one cool cantilever element!

                              Yes...the team is the Fighters, sponsored by Nippon Ham. A U.S. equivalent might be the Budweiser Cardinals, the Tribune Cubs or the Little Caesars Tigers.
