"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
Still a good little trip if you can make it. Give the stadium about another month and it will be 100% complete. Give it another year or two and the whole area around it will be developed nicely.

The concession prices are very reasonable, the most expensive food item being $5 (chicken tenders with fries and nachos), the drink prices range from $1-$3 for a coke to $5 for a beer.
The parking situation is not too bad at night time, there are several pay lots ranging from $3-$5 or there is plenty of places where you can park along the curb on various downtown streets for free. The games are a great time, tonight is going to mark my 6th game of the year.
Yeah, you shouldn't have a problem getting tickets. Some of the "Thirsty Thursdays," ($2 beer night) are bigger crowds, but never sold out. Although with the local college being out, it may not be as crowded.
Only one of the 2 lawn areas is finished. The one down the right field line is open, but they just got the sod down in the center field lawn, and I don't think is open yet. I've heard of people buying the $5 lawn, then sitting wherever they want in the seats, which are a whopping $10.
Shoot me a PM if anyone's interested in carpooling down there.
