MY TAKE ON THE PARK

AutoZone Park, from left center - Memphis, Tn

AUTOZONE PARK IS NOT JUST A GAME, IT IS AN EVENT. FROM THE TIME YOU WALK
THROUGH THE GATE UNTIL THE END OF THE NIGHT IT IS A CONSTANT PARTY. THE
MEMPHIS REDBIRDS INCORPORATE THE CITY INTO THE BALLPARK AS WELL AS THE
BASEBALL TRADITION OF THEIR AFFILIATE, THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS.

FIRST, IF YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL TO BALLPARKS, MEMPHIS IS NOT A PLACE TO RUN
TO FOR THE GAME AND GET OUT, YOU MUST STAY HERE AND ENJOY THE WHOLE
EXPERIENCE. GET TO THE PARK EARLY AND PARK AT THE PEABODY, THE PEABODY
HOTEL IS THE CENTER PIECE TO EVERYTHING IN MEMPHIS. THERE IS CITY
PARKING ALL AROUND THE PARK WHICH RANGES FROM $5 - $10.AFTER YOU PARK,
PICK UP A TICKET FOR THE GAME AND THEN GO GET SOMETHING TO EAT. TRY THE
RENDEZVOUS RIB PLACE LOCATED IN THE ALLEY ABOUT 2 BLOCKS FROM THE PARK.
AFTERWARDS, TAKE A WALK TO THE PEABODY AND MAY CATCH THE DUCKS AT THE HOTEL.

FROM THERE, HEAD TO THE PARK. A GRAND ENTRANCE AWAITS AND ON A SATURDAY,
THERE MAY EVEN BE A BAND PLAYING. ENTER INTO A COURTYARD TYPE AREA TO
WATCH THE SHOW OR HEAD ON INTO THE PARK. UPON ENTERING THE PARK AREA,
THE MAIN CONCOURSE IS SET BEHIND THE LOWER SEATING AREA. AUTOZONE PARK
ALLOWS YOU TO WALK AROUND THE LEFT FIELD CORNER TO CENTER FIELD. LOCATED
IN LEFT FIELD IS A CHILDREN'S CARNIVAL AREA, ON SUNDAYS YOU CAN EVEN GET
A HAIRCUT. BEHIND THE RIGHT FIELD FENCE IS A PICNIC AREA.  PRIOR TO THE
GAME, THE OUTFIELD WALL HAD A CAMDEN YARDS LIKE CLOCK ON THE SCOREBOARD
WHICH TICKS UNTIL GAME TIME.

ONCE THE GAME BEGINS, MEMPHIS DOES A MAJOR LEAGUE JOB HANDLING THE GAME.
THE LINE UPS ARE KEPT UP ALL GAME, THE SCORING DECISIONS GO UP QUICK,
AND ASIDE FROM THE CHEER LEADERS, MEMPHIS LIMITS THE PROMOTIONS.
LIKE THE PARENT CARDINALS, THE REDBIRDS HAVE VERY HARD WORKING VENDORS.
ALL HAVE FUN PERSONALITIES AND ALL ARE REGULAR VISITORS. DURING A HOT
SUNDAY AFTERNOON, THESE GUYS ARE A WELCOME VISITOR TO THE SEAT. IT
SEEMED LIKE THERE WERE TWO BEER VENDORS FOR EVERY SODA VENDOR, DUE TO
THEIR PERSONALITIES, IT WAS AS MUCH FUN TO SEE THEM AS IT WAS A WELCOME
SIGHT.

AS FOR THE FOOD AT THE PARK, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THE BARBECUE
NACHOS. DEFINITELY NOT TO BE COMPARED WITH THE BARBECUE IN MEMPHIS, BUT
VERY GOOD BALLPARK FOOD.  AFTER THE GAME, STICK AROUND FOR A POST
CONCERT PARTY OR HEAD ON OVER TO THE FUN AND EXCITEMENT OF BEALE ST.

Game Action at Autozone Park, Memphis Tn

A TRIP TO MEMPHIS IS ONE WHERE YOU GO TO THE GAME AND END UP ENJOYING
THE EXCITEMENT OF THE CITY. DUE TO THE LOCATION OF THE PARK, EVERYTHING
IS RIGHT THERE. ASIDE FROM THE GOOD EATS IN MEMPHIS, JUST ABOUT 15
MINUTES SOUTH OF THE PARK IS GRACELAND, THE HOME OF ELVIS. BACK TO THE
PARK, GREAT SIGHTLINES, HARD WORKING VENDORS, AND A TOTAL RESPECT FOR
THE GAME MAKE MEMPHIS THE TOTAL PACKAGE. THE ATMOSPHERE HERE  MAKES THIS
ONE OF MY FAVORITE BALLPARKS.
