Some ballparks have longer gestational periods than others, which is maybe why the opening of BB&T Ballpark, the new home of the Winston-Salem Dash, is a little anticlimactic for many in the baseball world. Indeed, the roots of this part can be traced back a decade ago under previous team ownership; more recently, work on this project was delayed a year after the city of Winston-Salem bailed out the project.

It was so worth the wait, as we discovered when we hit BB&T Ballpark on opening night.
