This week: The Diamondbacks are in St. Pete for a two game stretch against the Rays. As we all know (and were reminded of last night) Tropicana Field is kind of a dump (to put it mildly) and that of all the teams, they probably have the best case to get a shiny, new field. However, that put this challenge idea in this head:

Give me a pitch for a ballpark that you would build. Is it pitcher or hitter friendly? What sort of extra distractions amenities does it have? It doesn't necessarily have to be for a specific team, but go for it, if you want.

Give your pitches, rec the other ones you like. The winner will be able to get their local cash-strapped municipality to bend over backwards to build your ballpark idea for you!
