This.

It looks like something that would be in a public park on the poor side of town.

I actually agree 100%.

I think it looks stupid, and misplaced. As I do any playground in a collegiate stadium (PRO is a different story completely). I also agree with a lot of points you've made in this entire thread. I also guarantee that if this were in Clemson's stadium it would be trashed on everyday forever.

But that still doesn't make it wrong, or right, to have one! It's just a growing trend. It doesn't harm anyone. Why does it matter so much?

I went to hear Coach Holbrook speak tonight in Columbia. He was giving the season preview (I'll have my notes in a separate thread) but he did mention the playground.

He said that Tanner had always wanted a playground from the beginning construction of Carolina Stadium, but that insurance issues prevented it from happening until Tanner got to be AD. Apparently, Tanner got the issues worked out.

I think he also got a big donation to build it .

You also arent going to find a College Baseball stadium that is built like South Carolinas. You arent really going to find many Minor league stadiums built like South Carolinas.

They added garnet back stops behind home plate with SC's on them. Start bitching in 3, 2, 1.......

I'll be honest...I was a little worried about those due to my friends that sit behind home plate b/c it looked like it blocked their seats initially. Then I saw a different angle, and it appears to be fine.

Also, it runs the entire length down the lines too.

I think it looks so much better than the netting. And the games I went to last year I sat on the first base side and the netting was all torn up and looked like crap. I'm glad they did this.

It is definitely a good thing for safety, and appearance.

But yes, someone will complain about it.

Hope they don't mind my footprints on it :).
