That it was By far one of the best located ballparks I've been to. Easy walk from our hotel, with plenty of bars and food joints all around. Not to mention a outstanding looking park inside and out.

I know that all the Georgia Bulldog fans that hijack Bobby Dodd Stadium every second November enjoy the skyline view.

450 million year-old Kasota Limestone from Mankato, apparently they couldn't afford the new stuff. Early on in the ballpark construction, the Pohlads upped their contribution by $55 million for architectural enhancements and infrastructure upgrades which included the addition of the Kasota Limestone inside and outside of the ball park, cladding and lighting the underside of the roof canopy and building the LF Party Deck among other enhancements. The outside facade includes over 100,000 square feet of limestone.
