FredNats open house is this coming Saturday.  11-2, ballpark tours and concessions available
I hope they did not bring the chef from Pfitzner.

i toured the stadium early last year, it doesn't look like they brought over anything from the Pfitz, and that's a very good thing.  It really is a beautiful stadium.  The artificial surface padded with ground coconut husks is especially nice.

Seriously...

It's a nice place...not as nice as WPB for sure, but nice.  I guess you could say that about most anything after the Pfitz.

Parking will be problematic at some point, as will traffic leaving the Park.

They did lay it out well, with the sun setting generally behind home plate and a generous canopy over most of the seats, so shade will come early and be plentiful.

The best feature is it's only 60 minutes door-to-door for us, so I felt good about buying a 15 game plan.  All but 2 of our games are at 6:00 or 7:00, and the 2 day games are on Sundays so we'll give those tickets to our kids...

I loved the Pfitz.  10 minute drive for me.  Too bad they didn't work out a stadium deal in PWC.

The Pfitz was an absolute dump of a ballpark.

Look at on field security. Much more fun and you only have to interact with people when are tackling them.

Outdoor venues able to operate at 50% capacity as of May 15, no cap.  Good news for Fredricksburg.

VA just upped outdoor sporting event attendance to 1,000 effective immediately, previously it wasn't going to go into effect until May 15.  More good news for FredNats.

Opening day roster. Never heard of these guys. Jake Boone is Brett Boone’s son.  And Bob’s grandson.

That's what happens with a low-A team the year after no minors.  Most of those guys have never played full-season ball at all.  Alastre is in about his thirtieth year at low-A.

Have to imagine guys like Infante, Lara and De La Rosa eventually play in Fredericksburg quite a bit.

Rutledge, Cavelli, and Henry head to Wilmington. What could have been.
