I love GABP. That said, you can tell it was done on the cheap.
It just lacks workmanship and quality. It lacks the feel of a "THIS IS CINCINNATI, THE BASEBALL CAPITAL SINCE 1876!"
I don't know. Like I said, I love it but at the same time I see the Giants stadium and ours is just laughable compared to there's. They have such a beautiful park, and I love that that the bullpen mound is done in a old school way by the 1st base/3rd base line, and that the bullpen guys can hangout with the team rather by there lonesome in the cage our in leftfield. I don't know, I guess I just love the look of it. It's very classy, very elegant looking.
I guess at the end of the day I just wish more effort, more time, more love, was spent on the design of GABP park..but I guess that also equates to needing more money as well..sadly.
Then again I look back at pictures of Crosley field and I think that's one beautiful ballpark as well, and I doubt to much money was spent on that park....
