Take me out to the ballgame!

Posted By on Mon, Jun 12, 2006 at 11:39 AM

An account of the Montpelier Mountaineers' opening day, from Chris Fells at From the News and Sports Desk:

Recreation Field is set back off of Elm Street, in a residential areaof the city. The parking is limited, so there are always shuttle bussesrunning from various parts of town. The park itself is one you wouldexpect to see back in the days of baseball where there wasn't a steroidcontroversy, and astro turf wasn't even a thought. The park seats about1,500 or so in one of those old fashioned covered grandstands. On manynights, you can catch fans sitting on lawn chairs down the first andthird base side, which gives the kind of homey feeling to the park. Ofcourse, one can still get their fill of hot dogs, chicken dinners, andevery piece of merchandise one can eat, or wear for that matter. Thepark itself is surrounded by the trees that have made Vermont sofamous. Being in such a wooded area makes you step back a bit, andreally enjoy kicking back with a hot dog and soda(No beer, this is afamily friendly environment.) and watching some good baseball.
