Photos of P.K. Park
The Hawks dropped their opener at P.K. Park on the University of Oregon athletic campus (the U of O academic campus is located on the opposite side of the Willamette River) – marking the first time that Boise had played on a synthetic turfed field since the Portland Rockies relocated to Tri-City.
The players and coaching staff (including Cubs VP of Player Personnel Oneri Fleita, who was at the game) raved about the playing surface, how the ball played true and it was a nice atmosphere.
The lone complaint is the fact that the facility is not built to MLB codes, but to NCAA codes – with no visiting clubhouse or umpire room on the site. The Hawks had to make a quarter mile trek to the Autzen Stadium (football home of U of O) visiting football locker-room to dress.
The following are a few pictures that I snapped throughout today, while the following links are some videos from the ballpark and the University of Oregon athletic completx (PK Park 1) (PK Park 2) (PK Park 3) (Autzen Stadium)
