Today’s photo shows our empty baseball stadium, called Truist Park, in uptown Charlotte. But it will not be empty long. The first home game is scheduled for April 6th. Truist Park was previously know as BB&T Park. However, the name changed along with the bank’s name.
Personally, I think it may be a little early to open sporting events. However, I was pleased to find that the Charlotte Knights’ website explains their Covid health and safety protocols include limited capacity, social distancing, and mask.
Note that this photo has been touched up using Photoshop. Following is a link showing the original photo which included a wire running directly through the middle of the photo. Photoshop’s healing brush removed the wire from the sky but if you look closely you can see the wire still crosses in front of the mid rise building just to the left of center.
Also, of interest. If you zoom in there is a window washing crew busy at work on about the 19 floor of the white building just right of center in the photo.
This photo was taken of the Atrium Health signs which say #ThisIsMyShot which is a hash tag photo opportunity supporting mass vaccine events held at the Bank of America stadium where the Panthers play. Bravo to Atrium Health and the Panthers.
The sun was out, the temperature were up, and the flowers were blooming. It was great to get out for a walk today. Given the pandemic we were careful to stay far away from others who were also enjoying the weather.
Not quit as fast as a NASCAR race but Ice Skating is still a thrill. Each year an ice rink is setup in front of the NASCAR Hall of Fame and a Northern experience comes to the South. It is always busy and great fun to watch.
The BB&T Ballpark in a nice addition to Uptown Charlotte … We are not big baseball fans however it will be enjoyable to be part of the crowd and we wish them success.
This photo was taken of the BB&T ballpark where the Charlotte Knights play. The map location is: 324 South Mint Street. When you open the map notice how close the baseball park is the football stadium. A basketball arena is also just a few blocks away.
