As mentioned previously, this is very much an older structure. You can see the poles holding up the covering, similiar to the old Tiger Stadium. There was a net and chain link fence around the entire field causing, in my opinion, distraction from viewing the game. You can see in this photo, the bullpens were on the field (look just beyond the dugout, you'll see two pitchers warming up.)




There were bleachers out in left field which was the oddest thing I've seen. The grass was kept well at this stadium. The one thing that photos can't depict is the music selection, volume, and use. They did a very poor job at Grayson Stadium. They played music during the announcement of the starting line up. Odd. Annoying. Had to strain to hear. They played music while announcing the MLB scores. It was a great idea to announce the MLB scores but the effort was in vain because noone could hear it over the music. And, I was thoroughly sick of the Adams Family tune by the time I left this game.

Other things to do in the area: I found Savannah a great tourist city. Lots to see and do. Check this link for attractions and information on Savannah.
