Chillin' in the Summer Time
We try to get to Diamondbacks games on Wednesdays for 2 simple reasons:
1) We like going to games
2) Every Wednesday, kids get a voucher for a free popcorn, soda, and hot dog
Add up the free food with the free parking and the cheap seats and you have a great night out for a family of four.
Recently the D'backs have been keeping the roof open for night games, feeling that the air conditioning and the night sky will still keep fans comfortable while at the same time eliminating the dome atmosphere. The change in atmosphere is remarkable as Chase Field looks very different with the roof open.
As far as the fan comfort though.... oh boy.
I have heard D'back management say that the climate is just fine, but for us up in the cheap seats it was like baking in an oven. Given that the attendance for weeknight games is usually less than 30,000 that means we can always find a cooler seat. All in all a small price to pay for a better ballpark experience and please keep that roof open.... but don't tell me it's not just a bit uncomfortable.
