Winston Salem Dash- Winston Salem NC

Date of Game:  May 31, 2012

On the first leg of the 2012 Summer Adventure, Coop and I did two parks today, and we got here at Winston Salem about 6 pm for a game between the Dash and the Frederick Keys. 

We thought we had good seats, Section 107, Row 5 right at the home dugout.  Turned out to be good seats for seeing the game, but not worth anything for getting balls-  This league or team clearly is cheap when it comes to baseballs, they kept everyball all night, never threw any into the crowd, didn't have batting practice, so Cooper got skunked for balls. 

This is a beautiful new park, about two years old. 

Since it was a long travel day, and we had been up very early, we left after 6.5 innings, with the score 4-0 Frederick, the Dash came back and made it interesting, and Frederick wound up winning 8-5.

Line Score showed 25 Hits and 5 errors, I would say the official scorer was very generous with that, I thought there were 4 or 5 more errors. 

Official crowd was listed at 3708, I would have said there were no more than a thousand there... lots of empty seats. 

This park has one of the nicest video jumbotrons of any minor league park I have seen-

They had a big fancy control room on the concourse, with a staff of about 10 or so running the various components of the information systems:
