One of the many good things about watching University of Louisville baseball is the incredible view over the center field fence. The magnificent edifice of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium is a constant presence, one of the best views around of the stadium’s front porch.
With the twin pillars, the swooping white roof, the wall of windows encasing the Brown & Williamson Club, the architectural scale and detail of the stadium says first class in every respect. This view of the football stadium never gets old, a continuing reminder of how far the university’s athletic programs have advanced over the last 20 years.
Jim Patterson Stadium, of course, is another impressive example, with a nationally ranked team as the primary tenant and with an extraordinary playing surface for a field.
Quite a contrast from peering behind a post in the old Fairgrounds Stadium for decades. The view never gets old.
