    It was a beer drinkers paradise.

    I live in Greenville, SC and we have a pretty nice stadium (Fluor Field)for the Drive.

    It's a Red Sox affiliate, and they have the dimensions set just like Fenway, hence the Green Giant in left. Mostly though it's set downtown in a city that has had nothing short of a renaissance in the past decade. Downtown is just awesome for a town this size.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the park in Greenville. Years back the AA team for the Atlanta Braves were in Greenville. I went to catch a game there at the old park and it rained out before I could even get to go inside. Greennville did right with their new park. I'd like to come down and catch the Asheville Tourists while they are there.

    I've been to Lakeland twice, 1988 and 2007. Both trips were for the Tigers spring training there. In 2007 I spent three days there and honestly don't understand how this park is considered a "must-see." I really have no criticisms of the park but would never consider it something to go out of my way to see.

    I'm the same way. Ballpark was a big nothing as far as I was concerned. I've heard they have a renovation scheduled soon.
