I drove up to Dickey-Stephens Park on Saturday night and instantly had a different impression than Thursday's crush of opening night. And as I walked in the stadium and looked out onto the field from the concourse, it hit me as it did during the construction that the place has everything I had hoped for in a new Minor League stadium. It's a true jewel that will have a giant impact on the importance of baseball in Central Arkansas. What I always wanted from Ray Winder Field was to see the world beyond the fence, and with Dickey-Stephens you couldn't have asked for more. You can see the cars going over the Broadway bridge. You can see cars going down Riverfront Drive. You can see the goings on at the Wyndham Hotel. You can even see the cars across the river in Little Rock and the lighted sign at the River Market parking deck. Then there are the buildings along the sklyine. For all there is to see inside the stadium, there is everything to see outside it as well. And they even have Major League scores running along the bottom of the scoreboard now to spark discussion about the baseball world with the person next to you. I must say, I love it. It is the new home of summer. Thanks to everyone who made this a reality.
