MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Eastwood Field - From Right Field

LOCATED BEHIND THE EASTWOOD MALL SITS EASTWOOD FIELD, ASSURING THAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PLENTY OF PARKING FOR A SCRAPPERS GAME. THE MALL IS
VERY SPREAD OUT AND HAS JUST ABOUT EVERY SHOP YOU CAN THINK OF. THERE ARE ALSO A VARIETY OF CHAIN RESTAURANTS SURROUNDING THE MALL.

ONCE THE $2 IS PAID TO PARK, THIS IS FOR THE LOT RIGHT OUTSIDE THE PARK. A FRIENDLY TICKET TAKER GREETS YOU AS WELL AS SCRAPPY, THE SCRAPPERS MASCOT.

INTO THE SEATING AREA, THE PARK IS DIVIDED BY A WALKWAY WITH THE BOX SEATS ON THE LOWER HALF AND GRANDSTAND SEATING ABOVE.

THE PARK ITSELF HERE WORKS PRETTY WELL, BUT WHO REALLY WORK HERE ARE THE KIDS SELLING CONCESSIONS. NOT SINCE MY VISIT TO St.LOUIS HAVE I SEEN VENDORS THAT MADE A VISIT TO THE SECTION EVERY INNING AND HUSTLED.
GOING TO THE CONCESSION WINDOW IS ANOTHER PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. THE HOT DOGS NOT ONLY ARE PRETTY GOOD BUT THERE IS CLEVELAND'S "STADIUM MUSTARD" AVAILABLE AT THE CONDIMENT STAND.
MY FAVORITE OBSERVATION AT THE GAME HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STADIUM BUT WITH THE FANS. THE FANS HERE ARE INTO THE GAME, THEY DO NOT RESPOND TO THE SCOREBOARD'S REQUEST FOR NOISE OR CLAPPING.
THE SCOREBOARD HAS A GREAT PICTURE AND IS QUICK WITH THE BALL STRIKE UPDATES. WHAT WAS UNIQUE WERE THE RUNS IN THE LINE SCORE, THEY ARE ADDED AT THE END OF THE INNING. THE NUMBERS ARE UPDATED IMMEDIATELY IN THE BOX
SCORE AREA, RUNS / HITS / ERRORS.

The sun setting on Eastwood Field

EASTWOOD FIELD IN NILES, OHIO IS PAT OF THE NEW BREED OF MINOR LEAGUE
BALL PARKS. HEAVY RAIN FELL ON THIS PARK FOR 2 DAYS PRIOR TO THE GAME
AND ON THE DAY OF BUT THE GAME WAS ONLY DELAYED AN HOUR WHILE THE
PUDDLES ON THE FIELD WERE BEING TENDED TO. DURING THE GAME THERE WAS NO
EVIDENCE OF RAIN IN THE OUTFIELD, GOOD JOB ON THE DRAINAGE IN MAHONING
VALLEY.

AN EVENING WITH THE SCRAPPERS IS A ONE STOP TRIP. HEAD OUT TO THE
EASTWOOD MALL FOR YOUR PICK OF DINNER CHOICES, IF THERE IS A LITTLE TIME
YOU CAN EVEN RUN INTO THE MALL AND DO SOME SHOPPING. THEN HEAD INTO THE
PARK AND ENJOY THE GAME, KNOWING THAT A SODA OR CANDY WILL BE SOLD AT
YOUR SEAT THROUGHOUT THE GAME
