Of the 3 ballgames we went to, the game in
Peoria was the only one in a "new style" ballpark. It is the
spring training home of the San Diego Padres and the Seattle
Mariners. We were there to see the Mariners play a Giants
Though the park is
nearly 15 years old it didn't look it had a number of modern
features being incorporated into mid-sized stadiums.
It was also the first game we went to
and what a perfect day. Sunny, 75 degrees and just a slight
breeze. I will say, Peoria had an ingenious feature that kept
you in enough shade but still kept the sun on you as well.
Above our seats was this overhang with angled slats facing just the
right direction for afternoon game!
