    Why is that?

    I went to a (UGA) Bulldogs game and not only was the entire grandstand twenty feet above the playing field but there was a net around the entire area. If you weren't sitting in the first two rows the net was very distracting. Additionally, if you weren't in the first few rows you didn't get a full view of the field.

    I saw a great game against Vandy but was very disappointed by the stadium.
    If I had only spent a tenth of the time studying Physics that I spent learning Star Wars and Baseball trivia, I would have won the Nobel Prize.

        The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

                I miss the reptile skinned wall they had there, but I do love the subway great catch where if you catch a fair ball in the air you get a free subway sub!

                Did they ever think of putting a cover on that place, I know I'm a homer, but I love at Dick Houser up at FSU.

                  Until the 1950s, “major league” ball was limited to sixteen teams in only ten cities. However, the popularity of baseball extended well beyond the major league. When the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues formed in 1901 it included fourteen leagues and ninety-six clubs. By 1909, it included thirty-five leagues and 246 clubs. Pasadena boasted numerous local teams, which participated in small leagues such as the Southern California Baseball League. Typically, local businesses, churches and schools sponsored teams. One of the earliest teams was the Pasadena Stars, an African American team. Others included the Pasadena Merchants, the Pasadena Sportland, the Pasadena Giants, and the Pasadena Eagles. Prior to the creation of the baseball field at Brookside Park, teams played mostly at Tournament Park, which no longer exists.

                  The site of the what is now know as the Jackie Robinson Memorial Field was originally acquired in 1912 to be used as a small park in the arroyo. When it was decided that the land be turned into a baseball field, the architect Myron Hunt was called upon to design it, who was also responsible for constructing the Rose Bowl Stadium in 1922. Ten years after completing the Rose Bowl, Hunt designed the stadium, dugouts and adjoining clubhouse of what was then called the Brookside Park Baseball Field. The stadium was constructed to attract a professional or semi-professional team, and so it is much larger and more elaborate than your routine municipal baseball stadium, with a seating capacity of over 3,000. Very few changes have been made to Jackie Robinson Memorial Field since its original construction. The most notable was the installation of lights for nighttime baseball in 1982 and the addition of a bullpen and batting cage in 1992. The name was changed from Brookside Park Baseball Field to Jackie Robinson Memorial Field in 1987. Jack Roosevelt “Jackie” Robinson grew up in Pasadena and became the first African American to play for a major league team after the segregation of professional baseball in 1889. The stadium now stands as a tribute to him.

                  The field and stadium structure contribute to the sports and recreation history of the Lower and Central Arroyo Historic District. It is one of the oldest baseball stadiums in southern California and no doubt the most architecturally distinctive. The stadium itself was added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 22, 1998.

                    America's Most Scenic Ballpark (according to the article "America's Most Scenic Ballpark" written by Kevin Kernan for the San Diego Union-Tribune and Baseball America) is located on the campus of Point Loma Nazarene University.

                          Summer leagues are so fun to watch! I didn't realize they were big business though.

                                This ballpark, once called "The Best Little Ballpark in Texas (or Anywhere Else)" by Sports Illustrated baseball writer Nicholas Dawidoff, is the home of Sul Ross State University Lobos baseball (thanks to Thirsty Moose for the pics and info):
