  • The new layout of the hawks nest is very confined and not as open and fun as the older layout. Love the ball games but will not be sitting in the hawks nest any more...poor choice on the redesign.. and the manager of the nest, well. Enough said. Taking fun out of a night at the ball game.
  • While the temperature is high here during the summer, it's a nice place to see a ballgame. Make sure you're prepared for the sun, especially if you're sitting on the first base side.
  • Good crowd, just wish the Home dugout and seating weren't facing the sun till the 5th inning every summer!
  • Great family environment. Concerts are great out here!
  • Great place to watch a game. To bad the food is not up to standards that the game enjoys
