George M. Steinbrenner field is gorgeous.
This past Wednesday, I was in Tampa for the game against the Nationals. I had a blast and I must say that the George is a great place to take in a ball game. If you have never been, I would highly recommend it. It must be the class of Single A ballparks. The only thing that deterred from my visit was the fact that rather than show highlights from 2009 of the players, the park displayed images of the players playing from MLB ’10 : The Show. While I hold that franchise of baseball games in high regard, highlights from it do not belong on a scoreboard.
That is really a small gripe that most people wouldn’t think twice about. Other than that it was an amazing time and while I was there, I took a few pictures and thought I’d share. Keep in mind that I’m a horrible photographer. Pictures after the jump.
In case you’re wondering what the deal is with the rice, it was free rice night at George M. Steinbrenner Field. No Kidding.
