    Are you kidding me? The hot dogs are great! Really, really fresh buns too.

    The Riverboat deck was a quality addition last year. Hopefully they've added to it nicely, because it really did give the park a hometown flair to it.

    Better than most of the parks I've visited...

    Probably get a better price by advertising it on Redszone.

    A little too much advertising and coorporate type ins.. kind of kills the quirky charm of it. Sure, it's the Reds right to milk every cent they can, but I miss the days where every seat wasn't sponsored, and every inch of wallspace on a stadium wasn't covered with some kind of ad..
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    When I think back on baseball stadiums of the past I seem to recall alot of advertising. The right field wall of Ebbets Field was covered with many, many advertisements.

    I have no problem with corporations sponsoring every and anything at the park. If it helps keep tickets prices low and also helps bring in quality players then sponsor away!!!!

    I like it. It reminds me of Kaufmann in KC. I love things like that.

    I agree with both of you. I understand that they don't pull in the TV money a lot of franchises do so they have to make it up somewhere. I also understand that a lot of this keeps ticket prices low. But it's starting to get to the point where, as REDREAD said, they are putting some kind of thing on every blank space in the stadium. It's like a bunch of little kids just adding stuff to something they built for no reason whatsoever.

    The old stadiums had WAY more advertising than the new one's. Just looking at old pictures you can see advertising everywhere.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Hope the doors are locked. Because it would be a bummer to get to the stadium one day and find it gone. In Cincy - it could happen.

    Is there a "new" baseball park that looks any more "redneck" than GABP in centerfield. Personally I think it really looks cheap. One better...I think it looks "John Allen Cheap".
