The field dimensions are designed to match those of Fenway Park, right down to the (not quite as tall) Green Monster.

Oh, that's disappointing. The old place had a ton of charm.

Wow! Alex Box is impressive. Is it just for LSU or does a minor league team play there also?

Just LSU. Alcohol is not allowed in the general seating areas of the stadium (only the Club level) and minor league teams need the revenue generated from liquor sales.

This is nothing compared to the extensive facilities in America, but Dubai has its own "little league" facilities too



It's pretty far out in the desert, hence the desserted (and desert) look

Must admit some of those are really nice, very good standard of facilities.
In fact, most of these put our County cricket grounds to shame. The days of providing a 'poor spectator experience' are over. Pity nobody told quite a few people in county cricket.

Labatt Park
London, Ontario


http://www.altlondon.org/images/arti...ndonmajors.jpg

World's Oldest Ballpark, 1877

Labatt Park, formerly Tecumseh Park, is located in London, Ontario, Canada. It's the world's oldest baseball park and opened May 3, 1877. The ballpark was originally the home of the London Tecumsehs, but is now home to the London Majors of the Intercounty Baseball League.

London is about 20 kilometres from the birthplace of baseball: Beachville, Ontario.

Hoboken is the "birthplace of baseball" in the United States (1846). The world's first documented baseball game predates that by 8 years. Beachville, Ontario, Canada is the birthplace of baseball.
