    Would be cool if GABP would have this

    I just saw this advertised on Sports Time Ohio and thought it was a awesome idea for generating money in the winter. I hope sometime the Reds copy this idea Check it out!

    It'd be cool if GABP didn't look so cheap, was located at The Banks, and gave you views of the city.

    But it is at The Banks, or at least immediately across the street from it. Did you mean Broadway Commons? Broadway Commons wouldn't have offered views of the city either. Mt. Adams, yes. Downtown, no.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    I never understood this sentiment. I have only visited the GABP twice, but I was thoroughly impressed each time. It's a gorgeous ballpark with a beautiful view of the river. Have you ever been to the new Busch stadium? Beautiful view cars whizzing down a decrepit portion of I-70.

    I have only been there once but I thought the GABP was a good place to watch a game. It may not have all the fancy accouterments that are associated with some of the newer ball parks such as Safeco in Seattle, but at least in comparison to Safeco, I thought the GABP's sitelines were far superior.

    GABP can't face the city.

    I don't think ballparks are allowed to face the western horizon, or something along those lines.....

    I want this at GABP. Maybe it would make me despise winter a little less.

    I didn't fully appreciate GABP until I caught a night game at Turner. Turner Field is a nice facility, but a horrible place to watch a ballgame. It has bad sight lines with lights that are too low so you lose the ball in the lights.

    If you go to GABP to watch a ballgame, it provides a near-perfect experience and I've yet to find a bad seat.

    Depends on where you sit. I have a soft spot for Turner (and old Fulton County) as I've spent so much time there since I used to live about 3 miles from there.

    Put big mirrors above the outfield bleachers and then there would be a view of the buildings/city.

    I was out in left field for the game, so maybe that had something to do with it. Sitting about 10 rows behind me was Carlton from Fresh Prince. True story. He's put on a LOT of weight.
