MY TAKE ON THE PARK

p5170176.jpg

AFTER A 1/4 MILE DRIVE THROUGH THE WOODS YOU EXIT ONTO A HUGE FIELD OF BLACKTOP WITH A SMALL STADIUM OFF IN THE DISTANCE.  THE GATEKEEPER OF THIS LOT TAKES $1 AND RETURNS TO YOU A GAME TICKET WHICH HAS PRINTED ON
IT "PARKING PASS" ... THIS IS CURRENTLY MY FAVORITE PARKING LOT TICKET.

ENTERING THE STADIUM YOU ARE ONCE AGAIN REMINDED YOU ARE IN THE SOUTH BY THE BIG FRIENDLY GREETING YOU RECEIVE BY EITHER THE PROGRAM VENDOR OR THE SODA VENDOR.
BEHIND THEM IS A DIFFERENT LOOKING STADIUM FROM THE COLOR SCHEME TO THE HOUSE LIKE STRUCTRUE, AND ALL OF THE BARS IN THE SEATING AREA.
THE SEATS HERE ARE A LIGHT GREEN COLOR AND ARE THE SAME ONES THAT THEY HAVE IN READING,PA.
BEHIND THE CONCOURSE ON THE FIRST BASE SIDE ARE THE SUITES WHICH DUE TO THE SIDING, LOOK LIKE A HOUSE  OVERLOOKING THE FIELD.

THE CONCOURSE LEVEL IS VERY WIDE AND CAN HANDLE LARGE CROWS AND VENDORS, AS WELL AS A FEW KIDS RUNNING AROUND.
DOWN THE FIRST BASE SIDE IS A PLAYGROUND FOR THE KIDS, CALLED THE "PIT STOP" A REFERENCE TO THE FORMER OWNER'S GAME. 
ON THE THIRD BASE SIDE IS A PICNIC AREA WHICH IF THERE ISN'T ONE GOING ON GIVES A LARGE CONCOURSE EVEN MORE SPACE.
 
KANNAPOLIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO COME SEE A GAME. IT REALLY IS WHAT THE MINOR LEAGUES ARE ALL ABOUT, A FAN FRIENDLY PRICE ALL THE WAY AROUND, GOOD FOOD, AND CHEERWINE IS SERVED.
THE SEATS ALL HAVE CUP HOLDERS BUT THE SUN SETS BEHIND 3rd BASE SO SITTING ON FIRST WILL PUT YOU IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT UNTIL IT SETS.

ONE OR TWO EXITS PAST THE STADIUM IS THE EVERYTHING AREA OF KANNAPOLIS.
HOTELS, FOOD, AND WAL*MART ALL IN THE SAME PARKING LOT.
 THE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS IS A GOOD CHOICE IF YOU NEED A PLACE IN KANNAPOLIS.
 ALSO, IF PASSING THROUGH LEXINGTON, NC ENOUGH CANNOT BE SAID ABOUT THE LEXINGTON BARBECUE ON ROUTE 29. A FANTASTIC PLACE FOR LUNCH OR DINNER.
