On a night like tonight it might be appropriate to turn the page from baseball for a few months so I thought I might share a few of the parks I have visited this year. I have come to appreciate the intimacy of the minor league ballparks that are scattered about throughout our southern cities. Each is different and affords, father and sons, young couples, friends, I place to sit and enjoy a game and each other company.
|The home of the Charlotte Knights is an old ball park that is probably|
being torn down already. They are moving the Knights to down town next year.
I'm eager to see their new stadium
Its still to painful to talk about.
|This is the coolest yard I saw this year. It is built from a civil war train depot/ prison in downtown Montgomery Alabama. Its the home of Tampa Bay double A affiliate, the Biscuits.|
|Above and below are Atlanta's double A and Single A Clubs. I got to watch|
Alex Wood pitch his last game for Double A Mississippi before being called up to the big club.
|This is the home of the Birmingham Barons. This was the parks first year in operation and its|
absolutely spectacular with the city right behind left field.
