Golfer's Annual Hoover Met is a Garbage Stadium Thread
Nothing says top of the line for the best conference in baseball like the industrial door backstop.

But they’re making progress. The rotting deck down the RF line was removed...

But hey, they have parking for 120 RV's so we've got to keep the tournament in a suburban parking lot with stadium amenities from 1992 while countless AAA and AA stadiums in far more desirable locations throughout the SEC have been built in recent years.

The only thing worse than the stadium is the morons who defend it. I can’t help but think those folks don’t get out much and see what kind of parks are around these days.

There’s a fantastic park about 12 miles from the Met that the SEC could use.

The SEC just signed a new contract a couple of years ago to keep the tournament in Hoover for the next 150 years. Or something like that....

Maybe a tornado can take the place down soon.

I certainly don’t want anybody in there at the time. Just a rogue tornado ripping that piece of shite to shreds.

That Smith HR could have landed on Beale Street.

Instead it’s in overgrown kudzu and pine tree brush.

I've always enjoyed my time in Hoover for the tournament

They’re trying to pass it off as some beautiful outdoor scenery

Need me to come down there and bring you a hospitality pass? Quit serving beer a couple hours ago but there’s some food and drinks and private bathrooms you can go cry in.

Nah. I’m good. Went some 7 years in a row. Won’t go back to tournament until it’s moved.

New Sounds stadium in Nashville would be awesome for this event.

Or Red Birds stadium in Memphis.


ETA:

This is downtown Nashville (Germantown really), walkable to everything. Its an awesome experience with tons of stuff to do between innings/games like cornhole and putt-putt. It has live music playing on stage, tons of bars, good food, etc.

Ahh makes sense. Figured you weren’t here when you were about 50 RV spots off your count and didn’t mention the Finlay Center and all the new stuff at tournament.

I know they built a rec center where the kids can play arcade games and ping pong.

And look, I’m not knocking the people that work there. Everyone was always great. If the attachment to Hoover is so strong, I’m fine with it staying in a rotation of the great minor league parks in the SEC footprint.

Not to mention its at the end of a cul-de-sac with one way in and out. But the league offices get to dispense a lot of patronage to their home organizations (I thought the Vestavia Hills Rebelettes did a fine job with the concession stand) so that's all that matters!

But but but. It's in Alabama.

This is the SEC. The league office only cares about Alabama.
