MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Behind Right Field

ASIDE FROM BEING VERY BIG, I ONLY REMEMBER ABOUT THREE THINGS ABOUT THIS STADIUM.
FIRST, UPON ARRIVING AT THE STADIUM IT LOOKED LIKE YOU WERE GOING TO A GIANT POST OFFICE. IT LOOKED LIKE IT HAD THE SAME AMOUNT OF PARKING FOR A POST OFFICE TOO. AN AVERAGE SIZED GRAVEL LOT WITH POT HOLES WAS THE PARKING LOT. I'D LOVE TO KNOW WHERE BROWNS FANS WOULD PARK.

SECOND, AND MAYBE MY FAVORITE MEMORY IS THAT OF A COBWEB ON A BOX SEAT ... THIS SEAT WAS NEXT TO THIRD BASE AT FIELD LEVEL AND HADN'T BEEN SAT IN ALL SUMMER. I HAD WANTED TO SIT NEXT TO THIS SEAT BUT IN CLEVELAND, THEY GOT WISE TO PEOPLE PAYING FOR A GENERAL ADMISSION SEAT AND SITTING IN A BOX SEAT, SO STADIUM SECURITY MADE US MOVE AND DIDN'T LEAVE US ALONE UNTIL WE LEFT THE SECTION. IT WAS SOMETHING THEY GOT USED TO BEAUSE THAT WAS THE STANDARD IN CLEVELAND BACK IN THE 70'S, 80'S, AND EARLY 90'S, AN EIGHTY THOUSAND SEAT STADIUM WITH ATTENDENCE OF ABOUT TEN THOUSAND.

THIRD, WAS THE MUSTARD. GREAT MUSTARD AT EVERY CONCESSION STAND. I DON'T REMEMBER THE BRAND NAME BUT I REMEMBER IT WAS SPICY AND BROWN.
MY BIGGEST REGRET IS THAT I DID NOT SPEND AN INNING WITH JOHN ADAMS, THE BASS DRUM PLAYER AT EVERY TRIBE GAME.

OF THE 40 PARKS I'VE VISITED I RATE CLEVELAND'S 32nd, BEHIND ARLINGTON BUT AHEAD OF FENWAY. THE PLACE WAS HUGE BUT YOU HAD A LOT OF ROOM AND IT WASN'T VERY STRESSFUL.
