In case you haven’t seen reporter Pete Dybdahl’s story about changes at Salem Memorial Stadium in this morning’s Roanoke Times, here’s a link.
Pete reports that the new owners of Salem’s minor league baseball team — formerly the Salem Avalanche, now the Salem Red Sox — had suggested some changes in the place.
Among the highlights:
* The stadium’s name has been changed — to Salem Memorial Ballpark.
* And, perhaps the biggie, for fans — 2,000 fewer seats. The thinking is this will make the place feel cozier. It also, of course, helps drive up demand for the seats that remain.
So what do you think of the changes? You can leave your comments below.
