What's Good: Overall, this is a pretty boring ballpark. It's situated in a mostly residential neighborhood, however, and it's always nice to look over the outfield wall and see actual houses instead of a parking lot. Also, the backstop net was quite small, so a good view of the field is available from just about anywhere.
What's Not So Good: Just as nothing is terribly good about it, nothing is horrible either. There's not much of the roof, and the metal stands can get loud when the crowd decides to stomp in unison. The individual seats are those old, hard kind, but there's also plenty of bench seating to stretch out in.
