Interesting. In what ways is Waterfront Park (sorry - "Arm & Hammer" Park) not up to standards? Certainly this isn't the case with regard to anything related to the customers; e.g., parking, ticket office, seating, concessions. The park is a pleasure - it's easy to get to, parking is easy, ticket windows and gates are straightforward, seating is comfortable, sight lines good, concessions ample. Yes, i've been there, multiple times. I've sat in upper seats with large groups, in the picnic area (my retirement party was there!), and dead behind the plate (with Phillies scouts, when Reading was in town).
So we're talking about clubhouse facilities? At a facility that was built in 1994? What does MLB "require" these days? A sign-stealing set of cameras and video rooms?
Sorry to be cynical, but one gets sick and tired of MLB's constant efforts to extort local communities. MLB's owners behaving like the rapacious thieves they apparently are become prime exhibits for those who question capitalism in general.
