I am a BIG TIME baseball purest but why not use the technology we have now a days. I always thought the Reds should have built a stadium with a retractable roof. This of course would prevent rain delays. I have driven to a couple of games from central Ohio where games were called off. I would bet attendance was down tonight because of the threat of rain which did of course happen.
Just think, if it was a rainy soaked weekend and families were in the house all day, they would say, "let's go to the ball game!" Walk up tickets sales would sky rocket.
You would not have to worry about the summertime heat with your kids etc.
If the Reds make the playoffs, colder weather would not be a factor.
You could possibly host some games in the World Baseball Classic.
Winter concerts (Jimmy Buffett!).
In my opinion, it just would have made sense.
What are your opinions?
