#169: Check out the renovations at the Cove

One of our first posts was on the Silverhawks and all that Covaleski Cove has to offer, and I'd like to reiterate what a great experience baseball in South Bend is.  The stadium, walking distance from downtown, is celebrating its 25th year with $7.1 million facelift.  A new entrance will ease the transition between the stadium and downtown, making it all the easier to stroll down for happy hour at the Cove.   Fans are rewarded with improved picnic area and instant replay scoreboard, and for the players, an artificial turf has replaced the old field.

The first official home game of the season was last night -- a disappointing loss against the Lansing Lugnuts after leading until the 9th inning -- and the Silverhawks play at 6:30 each night through Saturday (and a 2:00 pm game on Sunday).  While you may be a little late in celebrating Opening Day, from now 'til September, grab takeout from Cambodian Thai or El Paraiso and enjoy America's Favorite Past Time, new and improved in South Bend.

Where: 501 West South Street
