I would like to echo Christopher Johnson’s letter to the editor and specifically his observation that the comparison of Atlanta’s ballpark environment to Oriole Park at Camden Yards makes no sense (”Would a Camden Yards ‘Battery’ fit a recharging downtown?” May 15).
Camden Yards is smack in the middle of downtown, not 10 miles out of town like the Atlanta ballpark. Both Atlanta and Philadelphia have built nice infrastructures to support ballparks that otherwise would not be utilized outside of specific events, while Camden Yards has plenty of existing options already surrounding it.
Some investment to support that would be a good idea, but you don’t need to create something out of nothing. That would be a huge waste of time and money.
