Victory Field Earns A Four-Star Rating
A website that reviews sports stadiums and arenas across the country has given a four-star rating (out of a possible 5) to Indianapolis' Victory Field. Paul Swaney's review at Stadiumjourney.com says the neighborhood in which the stadium is located is its greatest asset. Describing Victory Field as "an integral part of a great downtown area," Swaney notes "there are plenty of hotels within walking distance of the park." The nearby Loughmiller’s Pub & Eatery earns a favorable mention, as well as the Indiana Repertory Theater. Victory Field also earns high marks for its atmosphere, food and beverage accessibility and favorable ticket pricing. Swaney was not real impressed with the fans, most of whom were described as not talking about baseball or following the action of the game. Swaney also thought the stadium came up a little short on promoting the history of the Indianapolis Indians. He suggests a museum in the extra space in center field to highlight some of the baseball greats who have played for the Indians.
