"On a whim, we turned onto Ballpark Road and soon saw before us an old wooden ballpark with a halo of bright lights staring down at the field within. At first we didnít see a soul, but we could hear voices from inside the ballpark, and as we passed through a wooden gate, our feet seemed mystically to step into another time."
"A lot of baseball fans will offer you a laundry list of 'what's wrong with the game today.' They will tell you the players are overpaid and unresponsive to the fans. They will tell you that the game is too expensive for families and that the ballpark atmosphere has become too commercialized. They will lament that the sport has gotten away from its pastoral roots ...They have never been to a Deltaville Deltas game."
"[The Deltaville] community couldn't be morre intense about baseball, having supported the national pastime for decades. Deltaville Ballpark makes the heart sing. A wooden grandstand...looks like the exhibit hall at an old county fair. Batboys, hotdogs and half smokes, a nesting osprey atop one of the outfield light poles are all part of its appeal."
