    That and it would be cheaper to hire Dante Bichette, Larry Walker, and Todd Helton to be greeters.

    Add an extra torchy's tacos and change the chik- fil- a foul pole sign to "fowl"
    is there a way of fixing the harsh shadows the side windows cast?

    QFT.

    I have been to a lot of stadiums and MMP is still one of my favorite ones. Some of the others have aged poorly, and some very well. MMP is by far one of the best examples of just building it right. Few upgrades here and there and its like its a slight refresh on a damn near timeless design.

    About as perfect a baseball stadium can be.

    South of downtown by like a mile. Totally disagree about it being easier to get to. It is a disaster getting off the interstate there.

    Sure a lot of what happens in ATL is now North of downtown, and the Battery is a much nicer area than the ghetto area surrounding Turner, but really really sucks for those of us that live to the South.

    Right? Because one isn't one too many.

    Love Minute Maid Park, it has aged very well and the area surrounding the park continues to improve.
    Walkability around MMP is awesome now. Plenty to see and do.
