    One last hurrah at Midway Stadium | Ballpark Digest

    Definitely an "ugly duck" stadium, but not a bad place to kill an afternoon watching baseball. I haven't been up to the new stadium either.
    The new stadium is a gem. The old one was a dump but they made the best of it. I appraised it for the City of St. Paul so toured the whole thing, what there was of it. It was built for youth sports. The locker rooms each had about half a dozen showers that were set at a height where an adult had to practically bathe on their knees. It was actually a replacement for one that used to be on the other side of Snelling Avenue. The Vikings used that one for their in-season practice facility (when they weren't practicing in the parking lot of Met Stadium) during the Bud years. The good old days. How times have changed.

    At old Midway Stadium in St. Paul it wasn't unheard of that a home run ball at a Saints game would find its way into a coal car.

    I doubt we ever see that but I have seen my share of footballs go on the tracks, still waiting for one to bounce off a train. There is usually a red shirt or two assigned to grab them when they miss the net.

    Nice to see that fellow nsic members are taking action to improve the game day experience and safety for players and fans. Meanwhile in Mankato, we still play in a ****hole stadium that’s a disaster waiting to happen while administration chooses to fix boo boo’s with no productivity in sight.

    Watching last season close contest with Augustana at WSU, I saw one of AU players go out of the back of end zone and crash hard into low bleachers, he was OK, but I thought it was a bit dangerous for players..Seems to me was the north end. Maybe it's not that close to the back of end zone. What is a Warrior fans take on that?

    The south end zone was supposed to be raised patio or outdoor suite type seating. Tom said it was going to be done for this season but don't know how it is progressing. Things are always changing. Big for the school and city if everything happens according to plan. A better AD would nice to help with fundraising and getting approvals through. Wishful thinking there, the AD needs to go for so many reasons....
    I am not tight in the loop like some of you but just by coincidence I was talking to a guy who knows a little something about WSU facilities recently and based on that conversation I wouldn't hold hopes for seeing grand fruition of plans anytime soon. Everything is expensive and Winona does not have any deep pocketed committed donors like some schools do unfortunately. According to this person the money is not there.

    I probably need to pay more attention, lol. I knew there were plans in place to upgrade the stadium but thought they were on the back burner for a while. It's amazing what the stadium looking like in the 90's compared to what it is now and what it could be in the future. The college I went to finished a similar project 2 years ago and went from facilities that were worse than most high schools to ones that are light years better.

    I had not seen that version but it looks like the story boards Sawyer has shown me in his office. I just have gone by what Tom tells me, doesn't always mean it is going to happen on the schedule he wants but usually pretty close. Having the event center would be big for the city and surrounding area. Should be a great improvement when it is all done but it is also a huge undertaking. A number of things need to fall in place for it to keep moving forward but from everything I have heard it is moving forward.
    I think this is the official one, still very nice - but it looks like they're just expanding the seats and adding a video board. There are multiple angles of this one.

    Either way, that's pretty exciting. I've never been to the current field, it looks cool but I think it's a prime candidate for an upgrade.
