On the Road: Rained Out in Chattanooga

lookout.pngUpon arriving at Chattanooga’s AT&T Field yesterday, rain was the furthest thing from my mind. Seriously, precipitation ranked dead last in my internal list of all topics that could possibly occupy my brain space.

So when I arrived at the ballpark about an hour before the 7:15 start time, I leisurely began to document my surroundings. The ballpark is in an interesting location, in the heart of downtown Chattanooga yet also set apart from it.

This is the first stadium I’ve ever been to that features an escalator outside of the stadium:

Upon arriving at the top of this precipitous peak, one is deposited onto a concourse that wraps around the exterior of the facility.

This concourse offers views of downtown Chattanooga:

Fans looking for learned discourse know where to go:

The stadium entrances lead to a wide concourse, equipped with the usual array of concession stands, restrooms, souvenir stands, and wooden mascot statues:

There’s a heavy mascot presence at AT&T Field. I was able to capture some on film, but others proved to be elusive.

And, of course, there are also seats and a baseball field:

But my idyllic wanderings were soon interrupted by a furious thunderstorm, one that rendered baseball unplayable.

So THIS was my final image of AT&T Field:

And with the posting of that picture now complete, it becomes time for me to leave Chattanooga. Gwinnett County, GA, here I come.
