Watt Powell Park is officially gone

The old ball park in Charleston, WV was replaced by this one. I didn't realize until I drove by today that the old grandstand has been torn down. The stadium lights remain.

I've been wanting to stop by there for a shot of the empty stands before they removed everything. I thought it looked interesting abandoned like it was.

That is a nice shot of the clouds today. I tried to capture them as dawn shot from the Verizon dock but I was about 15 min too late to get a good one.

Hi Scott. You were out at dawn? Good for you. That was about 4 hours before I crawled outta bed.

I have great memories as a kid watching many baseball games at the old ballpark. I still remember how thrilled I was getting a foul ball! I also remember how the cool air would flow through the the park after dark on a hot summer day.
