I will agree with the “attraction” angle. Hell, our local minor league park would even fit that bill. I think this is a sign of the times. Ballparks ARE a part of a very BIG business…and today must attract and cater to those who frequent the place, the fan base. I think I see where you’re coming from, now. I’ll be at Yankee Stadium friday for the Rays game. I’ll tell better then. But just having watched the Yankees-Mets game at Shea,er Citi Field, my first impression was of a claustrophobic place…tall, steel-gray stands,holding out the light. At least Yankee stadium retains the look and field demensions of the original. Friends have told me, sitting in a seat at the new place almost looks the same…It is the concourse, restaurants, museum etc that makes the place so different….and the wide halls,less tight for the crowds. Am I right or wrong?
