You're right. Does Detroit have any gimmicks?


It's huge I guess. Also there are many statues of tigers, a baseball ferriswheel, and a carosel.


Seeing the game from the top of a ferris wheel might be cool, though having a roller-coaster along the perimeter of the stadium might get a bit distracting.

You can't see the game from the ferris wheel, and it's not a huge sized one that you might be thinking of.

i heard this actually might happen to the yankees....

they build a new stadium for them and a whole "Yankee Land" around it. there would be hotels, many shops for yankee gear, yankee resuraunts, and a Yankee Museum. that would be pretty sick i think. well to us yankee fans at least. :-D

a ballpark is only as good as the food and the cheapness of the food. I would just have a huge BBQ pit. Also, I like how PAC Bell has the water out past right field, thats money.
