They just opened the windows in the press box and let the fresh fall air rush in. Thank goodness. I thought the windows didn’t open, that this was hermetically sealed like most football press boxes where everything feels stale and prepackaged.

Baseball parks are more beautiful than football stadiums. Every baseball park has a unique personality and unique beauty. This place is lovely. And AT&T Park is a treasure. The dimensions of every football field are the same as they must be, of course. I love the eccentricities of baseball fields. Every park feels different. The new football stadiums are merely over-sized buildings with nothing special about them. Lambeau is the only football stadium I know of that passes the baseball park test.

    I agree mostly but have to say, I think there are a few other stadiums that pass the MLB set standard along with Green Bay’s. I think Arrowhead Stadium, CenturyLink Field and Ralph Wilson stadium are all pretty real. Most lack soul though, MLB stadiums on the whole are pretty special.
