Bye bye Yankee Stadium

The thing I'm excited about is that the plan for the new Mets stadium is modeled after Ebbet's Field, the old Brooklyn Dodger's stadium.

Now that would be cool ;-D

Here's the original model. From what I have read the only thing that is changing is that there will not be a retractable roof like there is in the photo.

Looks OK to me. It's a shame really because I care less about aesthetics and more about the functionality. The Mets have been lucky this year but normally early-season rain delays are a pain in the rear. It would have been nice. :-/
