We made the mistake of showing up early to watch BP and quickly found out why they called this place the "frying pan with seats!"
It was 98 at gametime at 7:00.

Always a packed house when the Yankees come to town.
These were the best seats, because of the breeze that was blowing in.

Wade Boggs and Spike Owen wait their turn. Boggs went 3-4 with 2 walks.
Arlington Stadium was pretty much a glorified Triple A park.
They needed a new park to compete, and they got one.

Stadium Rating: C+
