Default Changes to the park

Luis Robert posted an Instagram story from an event at the stadium club from what I believe was last night. I noticed in the short video that the sections (106-107) behind the craft kave have all the seats removed and some tarp over it. Wondering what changes are in store at the park for the upcoming season? See attached screenshot.

It's got to be more than maintenance. All those seats are removed. I vote for a giant hot tub, then my wife will go to more games. 😁

Wow, that sucks! Looks like craft kave tables are gone. Lil getaway for the stadium club crowd?

I used to have two partial season tickets in that area right after the new park opened and prior to the renovations paid by U.S. Cellular. They were really nice seats and we had our own waiter as well after we tipped the Miller Lite guy after the first round.

How do fans get access to the padded and non-padded seats? That looks like a cool area.

I'm guessing $$$ but that's a good question.

Based on the drawing, it looks like the access is through what used to be the bullpen sport bar.

Yeah those are going to be priced like box seats right behind home in the first few rows or higher. I'm guessing $100/game/seat at least. Waiters and TV access doesn't come cheap.

I remember sitting in the premium seats behind home at Oakland. A buddy splurged and got them. They were $250/each. Of course they also came with two free drinks and all the food we could eat.

2 free drinks? For that price it should be all you can drink.

Seems odd.

Most places won't do all you can drink things. Have to be careful with getting people hammered.

And some cities have ordinances prohibiting "all you can drink" specials.
