What's Good: For my money, Luther Williams Field is what a minor league ballpark (particularly at the lower levels) is supposed to look like. Set in a city park, the grandstand angles around the infield and is protected by an elaborately-supported roof with a little pressbox hanging from the center of it. All of the grandstand seating is comprised of indvidual seats, but bleachers are available down the first base line for folks who want to spread out a little. The food was good, the prices reasonable, and the people friendly. In a place with this much history and charm, who could ask for more?
What's Not So Good: Nothing, really. I liked this place a lot.
