The last vestiges of the aluminum bleachers from the old Cardinal Stadium at the Fairgrounds have finally been pulled or knocked down. And as this video from Business First indicates, it was not a job for the faint of heart.

For fans wanting chairs from the first and third-base sides, we’re told that the Kentucky State Fair Board still has that under consideration. But first, the board has to get a $3 million demolition request approved by the Kentucky General Assembly, which is no easy matter. Probably a cliffhanger in the closing hours of the legislative session.
