The field @ Yale Field - New Haven

Yale Field from the 3rd base side

WHEN YOU EXIT OFF I-95 FOR YALE FIELD, YOU HAVE A VIEW OF THE LONG ISLAND SOUND, REALLY ONE OF THE MOST SCENIC EXITS IN CONNECTICUT. THEN, WHILE YOU START OFF ON THE LOCAL STREETS YOU HAVE TO WONDER HOW DID THE FOOTBALL GIANTS ACCOMODATE THEIR FANS HERE?

LOCATED DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE YALE BOWL, YALE FIELD IS AN OLD TIME PARK LOCATED AT 245 DERBY AVE. OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE ADDED SOME STANDS AND CONCESSIONS AND REALLY HAVE TRIED TO CLEAN THE PLACE UP.

IF THERE WAS A DOWNSIDE TO YALE FIELD, UNFORTUNATELY IT IS A VERY BIG DOWNSIDE, THE BATHROOMS ARE A MESS. THEY ARE SMALL AND INADEQUATE AS WELL AS OVERFLOWING AND MESSY.

FROM THE INSIDE OF THE PARK, BEHIND THE STANDS ARE ARCHWAYS THAT RESEMBLE THOSE IN OLD COMISKEY PARK. AN ASPECT OF THE PARK I GREATLY ENJOY.

YALE FIELD IS AN OLD TIME PARK THAT THROUGH THE YEARS HAS BEEN SLIGHTLY MODERNIZED WITHOUT TAKING AWAY THE OLD TIME FEEL.
IN CENTER FIELD SITS A MANUAL SCOREBOARD THAT RESEMLES THE BOARD IN FENWAY. THE BALLS, STRIKES,AND OUTS ARE RECORDED IN LIGHTS AND THE LINE SCORE IS PUT UP BY HAND. ONLY THING HERE, I THINK THE GUY WALKS ON A PLANK OF WOOD AS OPPOSED TO INSIDE THE SCOREBOARD

The stands at Yale Field, New Haven

YALE FIELD IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MINOR LEAGUE PARKS, IF THEY JUST FIXED THE BATHROOMS, THE PLACE COULD BE PERFECT. SADLY, HOWEVER,2003 WAS THE FINAL SEASON FOR THE RAVENS WHO HAVE MOVED TO NEW HAMPSHIRE. THE 'INDEPENDENT' BRIDGEPORT BLUEFISH JUST MAY HAVE TAKEN AWAY THE RAVENS FANS .. I GUESS A MODERN FACILITY IS BETTER THAN AFFILIATED BALL.
