The outside of Lake Olmstead Park. Nice and clean in a 'state park' type setting.

The little structure with the green roof (left side of photo) with people standing in line is the ticket box office.

Date visited: 5/15/99

Ease of getting to; getting in and out of: I had difficulty with the directions; parking was tough.

Radio Announcer: None

Website: Okay
Official website

Customer Service: Good

Personal Notes: Beautiful setting for a ballpark across from a lake. The announcer was unclear. Think it was the sound system. Ushers asked folks to leave the box seats even though those tickets holders didn't show up. Although I did have a ticket in a box seat, I don't think it's necessary they shoo people away when the ticket holder is a no show.



Taken from just above the first base dugout. I like those scoreboards with round clocks in them.

I noticed on my trips to different stadiums and games, more minor league players wear the hi-socks than in the major league. The lower the level of class (A vs. AA vs.AAA), the more hi-socks.
