It wont take me away from the Sea Dogs, i am in portland alot , and plus i dont think this team will effect the seacoast area, are hub is Portsmouth were i live, so until portsmouth gets a team ill probably split my faith between the New Hampshire team and The Portland team, but i definitly prefer the Monarchs over the Pirates.

Hadlock field for the Portland Sea Dogs in Maine is pretty neat, although they tried to make it have a "green monster" but it looks ridicuolous! It looks so unproportional with the tiny stadium. Their are barley ever any fans and its quite boring. Hopefully Manchester will have many fans to attend that great looking ballpark for the Fisher Cats. Wow Manchester is gonna look nice with that.

(Stands up to defend Hadlock field)

Last year, Portland finished 5th among 30 Double-A teams in total attendance (behind Round Rock, Frisco, Akron and Reading). It is currently the 5th largest park in the Eastern League, with 6,975 places to sit. The new stadium in Manchester will hold 6,500. Last year, the average attendnace was 6,231. (About 10% of the total population of Portland :thumbsup: ) Out of the 176 minor league teams in affiliated baseball, the Sea Dogs will finish 26th in total attendance.

Any maybe the games aren't that excting, but there are tons of things going on besides the baseball game. I go to watch baseball, but many focus their attention on all of the side shows going on with the mascots, promotional things, garbage monsters, that coke selling rocket man, trivia, the center field lighthouse, speed pitch, and whatnot.

Also, The AA all star game will be held at Hadlock Field on July 13, 2005.

But besides that, I really have nothing against Manchester or their baseball team and new stadium. From what I've seen in this picture thread, it looks like a classy town and I would love to visit Manch someday.

arena football

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

You're getting arena football? We were talking about that in the Providence forum recently. There was an article in the Globe the other day about a group try to get a team in Boston. They were trying to get Flutie on board. Boston is the only major TV market that doesn't have a team.

I didn't know that arena football had become so popular. I do recall Bon Jovi owning a team however. Just don't try a roller hockey team, Portland had one in like the early 90s and they probably got about 200 people to come for the whole season (or however long they played before leaving town) One of my friends went to a game with his family and he recalls being able to just slightly raise his voice to talk to the half dozen people sitting on the other side of the arena. :P
