Opening Arguments

Field trip

"Quick, rush me to Parkview!"

"Are you in pain, sir? Feel dizzy?"

"No, Dummy. The first inning is about to start."

It is said that baseball fans will find more than a name change:

Fitness activities, blood drives, cholesterol and blood screenings, and healthier menu choices will be just a few of the features when Parkview Field opens next year in Harrison Square. The city's public/private $125 million downtown revitalization project at Jefferson Boulevard and Harrison Street also includes condominiums, a hotel, retail space and a parking garage.

Hardball Capital, the Atlanta-based owner of the soon-to-be-renamed Wizards, announced Thursday that Parkview Health has bought naming rights to the stadium for $3 million over 10 years.

Not sure about that. Aren't baseball fans who actually attend games mostly temporarily ambulatory couch potatoes? Think they want to do aerobics between innings?

Very good point.
