    One of the photos in the tweet shows something I can't identify. It looks like there is something on top of the structure. I think it might be a roof but I haven't seen one at a Gator home baseball game, before. :devil:

    To get some perspective I’m looking at the construction cam at 9:42pm and there are lights on at one of the other stadiums behind the baseball stadium. Is this the Lacrosse stadium or Softball stadium?

    Looking at the webcam in post 185 I’m thinking it is the LaCrosse stadium that I can see with lights on.

    Lacrosse is the field immediately to the west, adjacent to baseball. Softball is catty-corner across the street: NW corner of Hull Road & Museum Road intersection.

    I have stayed at the Hilton twice for baseball weekends and it is quite full already. They won’t sell more rooms by doing it in my opinion.

    In terms of bar/restaurant revenue, it would definitely get some patrons.

    A shuttle definitely makes sense!
    I would think a local entrepreneur would seize the opportunity to put up a sports bar/restaurant in the vicinity along Archer Road.

    Perfect!

    Or, in honor of @WESGATORS : name it “Triples”

    Ideally for me: it is restaurant/bar with an open-air roof-top garden bar atop a 5-story hotel - that I can stay in when I come up for the weekend series!(hint! Hint! You rich local entrepreneurs!) Sports bar, of course, overlooks the new Mac! @wingtee will hang out there for the whole game!

    As far as drinks go they could call it "3 Up 3 Down".

    I would imagine one of the pre-game “hype” videos this coming season will showcase the progress of the new venue. Or, the might link to the construction cam directly for a live “look in”.
