Parkview Field

It would be a good study, don't you think, to analyze ballpark names over the years.  Does that fact that Ft. Wayne's new ballpark is named "Parkview Field" tell you anything about where money is flowing best in the Ft. Wayne economy?  Names like "Turner Field" in Atlanta tells you something about Atlanta -- that Ted Turner and CNN turned News on it's ear there.  "Citi Field" is where the Mets play now... Citibank, right?  New York, Wall Street and all that.  The Giants play in "SBC Park" which stands for Southwestern Bell Communications -- cell phones, communications.

Here's list of minor leage ballpark names... study on your own... essay test tomorrow.
