Default Photos Inside US Cellular For 2013

Scott Merkin has been tweeting some pics.


Finally.. it appears... The PINWHEEL STICKERS ARE GONE!!









Also, looks like they added retired numbers by the stadium club.

Excellent changes.

I have always loved the pinwheel history. But the stickers looked awful.

I wonder if this means they are taking the numbers off the wall. Maybe they sold some ads.

Really?? Interesting since they just updated them a couple of years ago. I never really loved them, but they were unique.

That is disappointing to me. The photo images on the wall were a nod to the team's history and looked nice on TV. The tiny baseball numbers in the corner will likely get lost in the background. I'll reserve judgment until I see them on Monday though.

This may be nitpicking, but I think it would've been nice if the retired numbers were in the same font as the uniform that the player was best known for wearing. These look a little generic to me.

I liked them too, but they don't pay the bills. Those signs on the OF wall are pretty pricey.

I did too! I thought they looked really nice on TV after they improved on the originals.

Otherwise, nice changes especially removing the stickers. I always thought that the pressbox and middle tier seating areas would look good with a brick facade similar to the brick inside the concourse. It would help break up the lower deck and upper deck areas.

I think the new tables in the BPSB look much better. Those picnic tables were tired and awkward.

And sure enough, the wall murals are gonzo.

It still amazes me how much better the renovated ballpark looks compared to the blue seat/pale concrete original.

I like the clean look of the outfield walls.
