OK, I’ve recently been in three ballparks for Giants postseason play. I rate them in this order.
best — Detroit
very good — Cincinnati
acceptable — St. Louis
Detroit is large and fits beautifully into the urban landscape. You can see the big downtown buildings over the outfield and the scene is pretty. The park is brick, as all the new ones are, and it’s homey and just plain beautiful.
Cincinnati is a cozy park along the Ohio River. It smacks of the 19th Century and that is good.
St. Louis is just another big downtown park. It feels like a football stadium. The Arch looms over it and that is nice and feels kind of symbolic of something or other.
