City of Palms Park, [spring training] home of the Red Sox, is asking for $800,000 to add what one official calls "pizzazz to the facility."
Living in NYC, we know that 800K doesn’t go nearly as far as it does down in Florida. What gets you "pizzazz" in the Sunshine State might get you a powder room in West Chelsea. But being designers, we had some ideas about just what might be waiting in the wings for the lucky patrons of CoPP:
- Sushi bars behind both Sox’ dugout and bullpen (duh!)
- State-of-the-art dunk tank with fully animatronic likenesses of Derek Jeter and Murray Chass
- New modern concession stand featuring "JD Drew"-brand shin, ankle, forearm, elbow, mouth, and wrist guards.
- "Manny being
MannyNanny" Day Care Center franchise behind left field bleachers (thanks to commenter Quo for the perfect name change!)
- ADA-compliant revolving door to Red Sox’ bullpen
Get those blueprints ready!
