I will try to explain more once I get the drawings printed and can see them without having to move the pdf file around on my desktop. Exciting though!
I was just curious, do you work for an architecture firm? How were you able to get a hold of these plans?

Yes. The RF Foul Pole lines perfectly to block my view of the speed gun. I emailed my rep and Brooks about moving the Pole a foot or two left or right, but they said Selig said it can't be done. Sigh. Another reason to hate Selig.

Harold Baines usually stands in a direct line between my seats and Home blocking my view. We've tried to do the "Down in front!" cry, but he ignores us.......

I couldn't see the one in RF until last night when I sat somewhere other than my usual seats.

Either way - speed gun only in RF drives me nuts.

I think they should cover the outfield walls in ivy and tear down DiamondVision and replace it with a manual scoreboard. Sprinkle in falling concrete for effect.

Word is that the Out of town scoreboard is being cleaned up a pit. More data about pitchers/batters will be added and it will also included infomation on the type of pitch it is. Like the feature that the Astros have down the 3rd base line.

I'd like to see all the grey concrete painted green to match the new seats. As far as a new scoreboard goes, I'm for that too. I loved the old pinwheels at the old park and the awesome way it lit up. The pinwheels on the present board are just boring lights in sequence. Bill Veeck wanted it to look like an old pinball machine. We gotta keep those fireworks rolling though.

That would be AWESOME. Do you have inside info or something? Where's this coming from?

I wish they would have some way of enforcing some kind of Blackhawks like policy for getting in and out of your seats during the game. Maybe even just some kind of big sign at every section entrance.

I guess it depends on where your seats were, but last night I was at a low row in the UD at the aisle on the side of the section entrance facing the field, and it was terrible. I counted at least 30 damn times where people pass right when the pitch is being thrown (and a lot of times the same damn people), and the worse are the ones who stop in front of you to make sure they don't miss a pitch, nice courtesy douche. I mean it's a ****ing playoff game, and the same damn people every half inning. At least wait for a clear break in the action! (this isn't even mentioning the people who decided they'd watch the game from the railing blocking about 3-5 rows of people. Just annoying to have to spend most of the playoff game missing the action or having to yell at people who wouldn't move/almost getting into confrontations

How credible is your source? I'd love to have that OOT scoreboard improved and updated more often. Would they put a bigger board where the current one is? It of course would have to be bigger to include all of those extra bells and whistles.
