    What GABP needs.

    A FREAKING ORGAN. They should put one in that new boat thing in center.

    Other posts have mentioned a calliope going in there. And one poster has threatened violence in retaliation.

    Calliopes are high-pressure instruments that virtually explode their music through brass pipes. Invented in America in the mid-19th century, they were originally powered by steam but eventually converted to compressed air.

    They play organ music over the loudspeakers on Sunday games; I think it is piped in (that turned out to be a bad pun) by computer like the at-bat/between innings audio during other games.

    They need the smell of cigars smoking when you enter the park. The way it was when I was a kid. Part of the atmosphere, IMO.

    Every Sunday & Opening Day we have a live organist. The other days it is pre-recorded organ music.
    Today the organist did a few songs live on the calliope.

    I went batcrap nuts over the calliope. It is awesome. Great American Ball Park walks a precarious line between clueless and kitsch, and right at this moment it's balanced as perfectly as possible in my opinion.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    A winner on Opening Day was a great start. What more can we expect? Maybe a winner in Game #2.

    I think GABP needs its outfield walls to be moved back. Maybe then we'll be able to attract some free agent pitchers when Griff and Milty come off the books.
