Default Significant renovation inside USCF

There's a significant renovation inside the ballpark for this year, according to Brooks. There's supposed to be an announcement next week, but has anyone been inside the park recently and know what it might be?

Hard for me to care if it's not the scoreboard.

Bringing the hall of fame back? Or at least moving parts of it outside the Scout Seats area?

This is the first thing I thought, too. My second thought was maybe they installed handrails on the steps in the lower deck like the ones in the upper deck.

They're bringing back the blue seats, since they haven't won a World Series since installing the green ones.

I still wish they'd change the outside windows to dark green............just like the ones at Comerica Park.

New bar (XFinity Bar) down the baseline in the right field corner of 100 level.

They're finally taking down all the All-Star game decals and pinwheel stickers?!

They did that last year.

Beer vendors not going to be happy... The cooler they used to pull their cases of beer from is being moved out to section 104 now. Longer walk for them to seats on first baseline.

Interesting.

Two summers ago, Brooks shared the following with me when talking about a bar/area with view of the playing field that somewhat mimicked what Seattle has in LCF with 'The 'Pen':
"I WILL STATE THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT SOMETHING ALONG THIS LINE THAT I THINK IS WELL OVERDUE. LOOKING TO FIND A PARTNER."

Looks like they found that partner.

Isn't that what the Bullpen Sports Bar was? Don't get me wrong, this sounds interesting, but I thought we already had that.

Yeah, but to get to the Bullpen Sports bar, it's down the ramp away from the game and feels like you're going to a different place altogether. Outside the BPSB, the lower level isn't that great for watching games and the upper level cost extra money (before they turned it into a paid seating area last year). Plus, to even get any of the seats outside, you pretty much had to get there when gates open and they capped how many people could go outside.

To me, the BPSB has never been a quick 'stand-up, go grab a drink, and watch the game for a bit' type setting. It takes some time/effort to get down there and takes you away from the game in the process.

I'm not sure the field views will be all that great though. The bar is set back along the back wall where that game console interactive thing used to be. So picture that new area, then the actual concourse and then the seats and field.
