    It was designed that way so fans in line can still watch the game.

    Agree 100% with the dugouts, I never did like the metal tops.

    They need to get rid of all the tiny ones anyway and let the bigger ones grow...and I'm not a tree hugger or anything

    Since we are spitballing ideas, I wish we could have outfield boxes likes Mississippi State, but treehouse style. Obviously we don't have the demand for that, but it would be cool.

    And it is one of the very best features of the park.

    I grew up with them, hate them! No value to your property, we can plant other species of trees.

    It was designed that way and unless you are the camera guy or roof people you can't really tell

    I wouldn't, besides them growing bigger and tearing up the deck, it would be covered with needles,sap and red bugs.

    Yes, it was, and it's not changing. I'm guessing you probably don't attend anyway so I'm not overly concerned since it seems you're talking about TV viewing.

    A proper padded outfield wall would look a lot nicer. The current fence with top to bottom ads butted up against each other is tacky as hell

    Good call. Replace some of those pine trees with a pine deck! Could the actual trees being taken out be used on the deck?!? (mostly joking about that)

They basically did that on the locker room at Lamson park to allow bathroom access for the outfield bleachers.
    Former players have donated but not 100% First time I've heard that.

    How about removing the mcdonalds sponsorship on the foul poles?

    I wouldn't mind adding some .300 hitters to the park.

    This is probably the best suggestion, and with time would also assure that many, many, many $$$$ keep coming into the park.

    Removing all the wall signs will remove a whole lot of revenue. Same goes for the McDonald's on the foul poles. We will have to make up that money somewhere else in the stadium.

    Pine trees are not long lived and either need to be alternated with younger Pine or alternated with Cypress

    Oak trees grow wide and not tall so they are not a good outfield option

    The tree tradition at the Tigue is a must.
