The MLB Cathedrals Twitter account has highlighted the best and worst of every MLB ballpark including Cleveland’s Progressive Field.
Over the past few days the Twitter account MLB Cathedrals has been highlighting the best and worst aspects of every ballpark. The best and worst of Progressive Field was on display Sunday evening. Let’s start with the best of Progressive Field.
Two aspects of the ballpark were pointed out, but were not considered the best aspects of the ballpark, the largest big screen in baseball and The Corner. However it is the bullpen in center field which is chosen as the best part of park formerly known as The Jake. The bullpen areas were moved to this location after previously being down in the right field corner. This particular location allows everyone to see if anyone is throwing in the bullpen and who that person is. It is the perfect stage to see just who will be the next pitcher to enter the ballgame.
As the second tweet in the thread showed the worst part of the ballpark is the shipping containers in the upper deck. They are hideous and an eyesore. Also they are not what was promised when the renovation was announced. The upper deck area was supposed to look much different, similar to what the Rockies did in Colorado. The reply below is what Coors Field looks like.
Below is what Progressive Field was supposed to look like.
It’s pretty easy to see why this specific area is such a disappointment. The final product is nothing like what was shown before the project was completed. The current version plagued with ugly shipping containers is hands down the worst part of Progressive Field and it is not even close.
