The Great Lakes Loons, a Los Angeles Dodgers Single A Midwest League affiliate, play at Dow Diamond, which was built in 2007, with seating for 5,200. This a top level stadium for the Single A level. The Loons were playing the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and were beaten 6-3. The box score was Timber Rattlers R-6, H-10, E-0 and Loons R-3, H-12, E-2. The field lines are RF-325', RC-373', CG-400', LC-375', and LF-332'. This game also celebrated Christmas in July and it really was July 25th. Santa was in attendance and one of the between inning activities had a couple wrapping a trike. The woman won, see picture. Loo E. Loon is the mascot. We would like to thank Kevin Schunk, Ticket Manager, for the behind the scenes look at the facility. We started in the grounds-keeper area, Matt Ellis, Head of Grounds is show wielding his rake. We saw some pictures of past Loons who have moved up to the Dodgers. We visited the Loons' clubhouse. On the suite and broadcast level we saw the local ESPN affiliate station where they broadcast the Loons games as well as local college and high school sporting events. Last we saw the video production area for the Loons' games. They have a special group area at the end of the second level, 3rd base side, called Lasorda's Landing. It has a Tommy Lasorda theme. This stadium has some of the best food selections with reasonable prices that I have ever seen at the Single A and sometimes higher levels. There were 3,147 in attendance for the somewhat cooler evening game-mid 80s.
