FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!

We had a chance to read SB Nation’s feature on what the American ballpark of the future should look like, and we’re obsessed. The author, Scott Hines, a sports fanatic and architect, challenged new stadiums to include their local community in their plans, make the stadium blend into its existing surroundings, and to make it a true destination. Hines called for all the most important factors we care about to be considered… even though we may not have realized how important those were until reading the article. Here’s to breaking the mold on your standard stadium design to make something truly epic for multiple generations to enjoy!

We want to know from the fans, are these radical ideas amazing? Or do you think the author is reaching with his vision for what the next ballparks should look like? Maybe you fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum. The one thing we think all the fans will agree on is that they want to be involved in the process – even if it’s a customary community meeting after identifying ballpark sites. If cities do that for shopping centers and parks, why not for something that is meant to be a fan destination?

Power To The Fans!
