The setup: Cardines Field has been the location of baseball games since 1908. A 40-foot screen will be set up on the field facing the first base line and we will use that side of the stadium for seating. However, if we need to use more of the stadium for seating, we may position the screen differently. Also, seating is standard stadium bleacher seating. Feel free to bring a cushion or something to make your seat more comfortable.
