    true, but...
    They could integrate it into the mini golf course. Or maybe an outdoor jacuzzi the shape of homeplate?!

    Sounds like you have plans to bring the Dallas Cowboys "Ranch" into the football complex.

    I got over not having the warning track "hill" at Perry Field so maybe I will get over the move to a different location.

    A couple of CWS championships will help me get over it.

    On a positive note, tonight was my first practice at the Mac and hopefully a few more to come.

    Yesterday was the last practice scrimmage against another team at the Mac. Glad I go to see most of it.

    There was a women who came by for the Exhibition- who was the bat girl for the team back in the 80’s. Wanted to come back to see the Mac one last time . She reminisced about the “old” days.

    As we get into the season we need to come up with some pools. Like who will get the last pitching W at the Mac, Who will get the last hit at the Mac, Last RBI etc. Would be fun to guess in Jan/Feb and see who can guess correctly. Could do it with most meaningful stat categories.

    One of the things I love about baseball is someone is keeping track of every crazy stat. So, here’s my suggested list:
    1) Last time a Tuesday night game has a rain delay of more than 1 hour.
    2) Last time an osprey poops within 2 feet of an outfielder
    3) Last time a single forces a game into extra innings.
    4) Last time an opposing outfielder face plants into the outfield wall.
    5) Last time Sully gets tossed from the game.

    The new stadium should have an honorary tribute impression.

    Today was the last first practice of spring ball. The Blue 2nd teamers won 5-4. Kirby McMullen hit the first homer on the night and 2 for the game to drive in 3 runs for the Blue.

    Today was my last time to see a pre-season practice at the Mac. It felt really weird walking in realizing all those buildings and stadium between the IPC and the coaches offices by the track will be gone from this time next year. Amazing how people think with the supposed free flow of money.
