Monday was the home opener for the Amarillo Sod Poodles.
This was the first time many fans got a chance to step foot in Hodgetown.
“Hodgetown is one of the most high tech beautiful modern ballparks in the country,” Tony Ensor, president and general manager, for the Amarillo Sod Poodles said.
It has been 37 years since Amarillo has had an affiliated baseball team. Fans were able to experience the magic of baseball in the area once again.
“It’s so fun it’s exciting to be able to bring the family out here and to cheer on our own team it’s exciting,” Atisha Looney, a sod poodle fan said.
Food is one of the hot selling points at the stadium.
“There’s probably 25 different outlets where you can get food service here at the ballpark,” Ensor explained.
There are places to get hot dogs, beverages, pizza, and several other nice features.
“Another feature I love about the ballpark is the 360 walking track so you can literally walk around and see every view of the ballpark just like you would at a major league ballpark,” Ensor said.
The opening home game was sold out.
Ensor said that there may be about 7,000 people in attendance.
