    I believe that there should be more shade for the fans, disappointed

    Appears to duplicate South Carolina stadium’s Shade.
    In the late afternoon, I think most of the stands will be in shade.

    The bulk of seats will be in the shade...not sure what you want.
    And as I have always said , spent a lot more time being cold and trying to warm up than vice versa during many seasons at the Mac

    This is true for the die hard baseball fan. @WESGATORS has worked out game time temps a few times before and the number of games which are uncomfortably hot is limited.

    That said, SEC games plus postseason (the single SWAC home game but that is in March nearly every year) are the primary games that people see on TV and that should draw the largest non-student crowds which are the ones which need shade. So while 25-30 of 40 home games or more don’t need shade, the “key” games do.

    And I will add that while I don’t mind sitting in 90 degree sun and watching a baseball game (with beer of course...), my wife who attends with me is less keen. If she is comfortable, I can go to more games!

    Yeah, I don't think shade will be much of an issue. That said, I have wondered what the cost difference would have been to extend the permanent roof structure just a little further down to cover the last couple of sections. Would have preferred that over the blue shade awnings they show in the renderings, but that is really more of aesthetics thing for me.
