McKechnie Field's new outfield shade cover tilted wrong way

June 22, 2013 


The new left field bleachers seat 570 and include back rests for comfort. The bleachers are one of the new additions to the recently renovated McKechnie Field. GRANT JEFFERIES/Bradenton Herald


I am a Pittsburgh Pirates fan and I like what has been done to McKechnie Field with one huge exception. The shade cover over the left field stands is tilted the wrong way.

If you took notice during the pre-season games the shade cover provided no shade and probably never will. It would have been much more effective if placed over the right field stands.

At the very least, if tilted down, it would provide some shade for the upper seats.

By the way, why were no shade covers provided for the right field stands?
