What other elements of the new Sewell-Thomas Stadium should I be excited about?
For starters, the new Sewell-Thomas Stadium will feature an enclosed concourse around the infield sections. The innovative design of the concourse allows fans to enter the main home plate entrance "at grade" from the sidewalk along the corner of Coliseum Drive & Paul W. Bryant Drive. Thus, fans will no longer climb steps behind home plate to reach the concourse.
The covered concourse will feature new rest rooms, concessions, and a sanctuary from the elements.
A newly added outfield gate will allow patrons using the Coliseum parking lot immediate access to the stadium with unique views along the 360 degree concourse.
A family area/children's playground, courtesy of Bud's Best Cookies, will allow families to enjoy time away from the game, and still have a great view of the field!
In summary, the new Sewell-Thomas was designed for all fan demographics to enjoy in the most fan friendly environment possible. Come out to experience the new "Joe"!
