Coca-Cola Field selected as finalist for “Best Minor League Ballpark”.

Coca Cola Field has been selected by USAToday Travel as one of twenty finalists in a readers choice contest to determine America’s best Minor League baseball park. Part of the heading above the link to Buffalo is as follows…..

“Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo was the impetus for Camden Yards in Baltimore. It was also the prototype of the modern downtown ballpark, which nobody had the courage to try until this 1988 experiment. “

A statement that isn’t uttered often enough in the media. Show your blatant homerism towards the city that you live in. Go here to cast your ballot for Coca- Cola Field.

    i just never understood why it wasn’t built facing downtown, so essentially turned around 180 degrees so everyone can see the skyscrapers rather than the highway

      I know they did studies on this during the building of the park and realized that would not be a good idea. Wind direction and evening shadows from the sun off of those downtown buildings are just a couple reasons why that may not have happened.
