Default Fire at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids, MI (Detroit A)

25% of the structure in flames over the last hour. Temps in single digits. Not good.

Update: Fire was put out. Owners vow to have park ready for Opening Day. The damage, though, is great. Twelve suites and the audio/video control room destroyed.

They should just cut their losses, start from scratch, and build Sixth Third Ballpark.

There was a pundit here who suggested it now be called "Two-thirds ballpark."
