    KSP Stadium
    I happened to be driving down Hull Road last week. In the past, there was a great view of the home plate area / stands, and it had the attractive open-concept look of KSP. Now they have put in the tall, solid concrete outfield walls. I'm starting to think that this is not going to be attractive from the road, but hope to be proven wrong.

    The solid walls are for the grass berms around the outfield corners. The renderings show some open view to the field but my guess it won't be much and might have a berm blocking part of the view.

    Wonder: are season tix sales spiking this year in anticipation of the year after in the new venue?

    Stricklin letting the facial hair go in the summer.

    I’d suggest they bury the overhead utility lines visible in outfield views ...

    I was able to drive by the new ballpark yesterday and man does it look like it is going to be great! One thing I do not think people are crediting enough is the scoreboard. That thing is going to be huge!

    One question as I have not been to a softball game, how does the wind blow over there? The baseball field orients the same way and curious if the prevailing winds blow in or out?

    KSP Stadium
    We're happy when there is any breeze at all.

    While better than many in the SEC, the KSP scoreboard didn't get upgraded at all with the renovation. Maybe they will learn a thing or two from the new baseball stadium and port it over to KSP.

    Does this mean it comes from behind home and is not felt? If so I like it blowing out!!! LOL
    Just curious as last season there was a lot of wind blowing from left to right at the Mac

    If a front is moving through, the wind blows out to right field. If a northeaster is brewing, it blows in from center and right field. You are usually glad of any breeze except the Feb & March games.
