    Austin Peay invades Raleigh this weekend. Don’t know much about ’em.  Don’t plan on doing much research on ’em either. Thru four games in 2017, they’r

    Pack shutting down that high power Austin Peay offense today while the bats have been spectacular.

    It’s only February, but so far so good.

    The weather is in late spring form already. It’s nice to see year-over-year improvement.

    Ain’t nuthin’ wrong with that yard. It’s got real seats, lights, a great surface, fair lines, and a spring, Jetstream to left.

    So that’s a no? Jet stream helped out on that grand slam in the top 8th!!!

    I forget what year it was but Bob Black (one of the first guys to go to work for Lowes, ended as VP of sales) was playing golf in Myrtle Beach with Todd Turner. Cell phones were a novelty but Turner had one and was getting calls from Ray Tanner about up grades to the baseball facility.

    Tanner wanted lights and an extra $5,000/year.

    Turner nixed it there on the phone in front of Bob Black (who retired at 42).

    Tanner left shortly there after.

    Only thing I’d change is to add about 4 inches between rows. Legroom is not at a premium, but otherwise I think we’re flush as far as the facility.

    This is not wholly inaccurate.

    With all do respect I disagree with us being “flush”. Two, maybe three years straight preseason top 10 rankings, world series births….I’d just like to see a stadium that reflects what Avent has built here….you know, similar to every other team in the ACC. Not complaining, I absolutely love Doak, really. It’s like knowing I deserve a Range Rover but understanding I only need a Honda Pilot. I’ll leave it alone now.

    We’d all like to have the proverbial Taj Mahal. For our demand, the supply at Doak is more than adequate. Besides, simple fact is that the facility was semi-recently renovated so it’s not likely gonna happen again anytime soon anyway.

    Perhaps if/when our attendance warrants it, it’ll happen.

    The legroom is a definite problem. I’m 6’2″ (or was before I started the age-related shrinking process), and I have no clue how anyone taller than that manages to sit down at all.

    So the new Reynolds upgrade didn’t convert the basketball courts to baseball / retactible roof?

    Regarding Doak again…

    Ever since the renovations (which were longer ago than I remembered, actually….’04) I’ve always thought a sloped roofline extending from section 3 to section 11 (basically dugout to dugout more or less) would look awesome. Even made the suggestion to the PTB.

    I was cheerfully told no way…no ROI (my interpretation, admittedly…but that’s pretty much what I was told)

    How’d the pitching look this weekend? Wanted to get out there but had guests in town who had other plans for me. What’s the word on Brown?

    Another couple weeks for Brown as far as I know.
    Aside from one bad pitch (grand slam) pitching was fine.
