Kody are you back stateside yet?

I am indeed. Stationed in Oklahoma City now. Tornadoes suck, but at least I have minor league baseball now! And the Bees come into town this summer too. I should be able to secure my bleacher seat in left field so I can continue to harrass "Bro"mingo Santana. I went to the RedHawks opening game, and I told him I was in the military, it was my birthday, and that my wife was about to have a baby, and TWICE he gave the ball to some kids. So now, I shall harass him the rest of the season.

I went to the second game ever played in that park (and several others that season) before I moved to Las Vegas. Oklahoma City has a great ballpark, designed as kind of a scaled down version of the Rangers ballpark in Arlington. I hope that if Las Vegas ever replaces the craphole in the combat zone known as Cashman Field, that they do half as good a job as OKC did in crafting a new park.

 

The left field bleacher seats were great. I don't know what they cost now, but in 1998 when the park opened one could be had for $3. The last game I went to there George Arias of the Las Vegas Stars hit a ball just beyond my grasp (almost had that sucker). That was the same game in which the tornado sirens went off and the Vegas players were standing around on the field wondering what was going on. Stars' left fielder Dusty Allen, who was from the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond, sprinted for the dugout as soon as the siren went off. I saw him later going down the bench and explaining to teammates what was happening. Being in the left field bleachers I didn't see it, but people who were sitting in the main grandstand said that you could see the tornado about a mile or so beyond the left field bleachers.
