MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Animated Batter

BASEBALL HAS A LONG HISTORY IN CINCINNATI AND HERE, THEY HONOR THAT HISTORY.  THE EXIT FOR RIVERFRONT STADIUM WAS PETE ROSE WAY. 
RIGHT OUTSIDE THE PARK IS A BRIDGE THAT TAKES TRAVELERS TO KENTUCKY, THE ROEBLING BRIDGE WAS OPENED IN 1867 AND WAS THE PROTOTYPE FOR THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE IN NEW YORK WHICH WELCOMED ITS FIRST TRAVELERS IN 1883. 
WELL, I MUST SAY THAT OF ALL OF THE STADIUMS I'VE VISITED, THIS STANDARD COOKIE CUTTTER IS ONE THAT'S LEFT VERY FEW LASTING IMPRESSIONS.
ONE I WILL NEVER FORGET IS MARGE SCOTT'S (THE OWNER AT THE TIME) DOG SCHOTTZIE II. THE DOG WAS ON THE FIELD RUNNING AROUND DURING BATTING PRACTICE AND AT THE END OF THE NIGHT, THE DOG'S PICTURE CAME UP ON THE SCOREBOARD AND A VOICE THANKED ME FOR COMING.

OUTSIDE OF CINCINNATI, THE ONLY PRESS YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT MARGE SCHOTT WAS VERY NEGATIVE. HOWEVER, AFTER SEEING A GAME AND LISTENING TO HER VIEWS ON THE REDS, I THINK SHE MADE A TRIP TO THE BALLPARK FUN AND INEXPENSIVE. BACK IN 1990. LOWER BOX SEATS WERE GOING FOR $8.50 COMPARED TO $12.00 AT SHEA STADIUM IN NEW YORK.

OF THE 37 PARKS I'VE VISITED, I RANK RIVERFRONT 33RD BEHIND VETERANS STADIUM BUT AHEAD OF THREE RIVERS, MAYBE JUST BECAUSE IT WAS SO CLEAN IN CINCINNATI.
