That is hilarious but the loss is a real bummer, even if it is replaceable. They just did a bunch of 20-year anniversary renovations. It's a cool place. Hope they get it back online in time for spring.

sheesh- they can still play ball- it's just some of the suites that burned. Doesn't look like any of the grass or dirt got torched....
