    Shade. What the stadium, or any new stadium, needs is shade. My wife and I went there for the first time this past summer in late May and it was unbearable. Every seat is directly in the sun, until later in the game.

      I agree with you regarding shade, it seems to be at best an afterthought with new ballparks. As far as the Lookouts’ stadium is concerned the main problem is the orientation of the ballpark. It faces NW which puts the late afternoon/early evening sun right around the left field pole. Therefore the first base stands are hit with hot blinding sunlight. Unfortunately most of the seats are on the first base side but next time sit on the 3rd base side until the sun sets. If you go to a game day then try sitting high behind home plate.
