I was just going through the opinions about the truck being placed out past centerfield in the ORG. Since Bob C. took over, there have been many changes with GABP. Some notable ones include the riverboat deck, outdoor wuites, and the truck. When Great American was built, I thought it's outfield looked bleek, and like it was missing something unique. Below is a picture of what centerfield looks like now.
I wasn't a big fan of the riverboat deck, because I just thought it stood out too much. The batter's eye just looks terrible out there, because it looks really out of place. We have a small colorful ballpark, and a huge black building in centerfield. There has to be some way you can make it not stick out so much.
I am a big fan of the fun zone. The concerts are always fun to take in. I love how they have made the ballpark a more family friendly enviroment. Some of these improvments have given the ballpark a charm that is unmatched across the baseball world.
I love the truck idea, but it's almost impossible for the truck to be hit. Why not put it between the smoke stacks over the Griffey countdown to 600 like someone in the ORG mentioned? Then you could give it out either if somebody hits it, or the night Griffey hits his 600th, preferably here in Cincinnati. What's the fun in a truck being there that's never going to be hit?
So with that being said, what is your view on the ballpark? Do you like or dislike the changes that have been made in the past couple years? What are some suggestions you would give for future improvments?
