Finished adding links to all of the Ballparkreviews.com stadium reviews done for the CBL teams. Not all fields were visited, but the ones which were have been added – including new ones for Bringhurst Field (Alexandria Aces) and Wildcat Stadium (Clear Creek High School, first stadium for Bay Area Toros). Some of the reviews have in-game photos as well as the main stadium photos.
If the particular team’s field was covered by Ballparkreviews.com then a link to that specific team’s review will be on that team’s page which can be found here:
