Bell South Park

Chattanooga has its own Minor League baseball team called the Chattanooga Lookouts and this is where they play-Bell South Park. They're a Double A team for the Cincinnati Reds. The Lookouts appeared in a music video for the singing group Alabama for their song about baseball "Cheap Seats". The new ballpark opened in 2000 but before that the Lookouts played at Engel Stadium. My family attends games at the new park but they say they liked the old stadium better. When they played at Engel, the team held all sorts of promotions to get people out to the ballpark. My family's favorite was 25 cent hot dog night. The one time we told the boys they could have as many as they wanted! A big crowd pleaser was "free car night". Yes, they actually gave away a car to some lucky person with the winning program number. The stadium was crowded on those nights. The car was an old clunker but it ran and that's what counts. And the price was right--free! Unfortunately, since they've moved to the new stadium there's no 25 cent hot dogs or free cars. If you'd like to read more about the Lookouts or the stadium go here.

Bob--yes, it's nice but my family doesn't like aluminum seats. They say everything shakes and feels "cheap"
