Stadium Minor League History:
Eastern League 1992-present
Current Status: Home of the Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League (AA)
What's Good: Actually, quite a bit -- this is one of the more pleasant new ballparks. The seating is comfortable, the view of the mountains is lovely, and the field is one of the most perfectly maintained playing surfaces in all the minors. The staff, from concession stand workers to ushers, were all incredibly friendly. Furthermore, the stadium is in an actual neighborhood, with houses and businesses surrounding it.
What's Not So Good: Not a whole lot. But the exterior facade is incredibly ugly compared to the rest of the ballpark. You'd figure that a stadium that looks this nice on the inside would be attractive on the street side as well, but apparently the architect fell asleep while designing that part of it.
