Taking Back the Ballparks - Reds voting thread

It looks like we’re taking this one to the river. Here are the choices.

If you prefer Riverfront*, which the betting money believes will be the selection, please choose the follow-up you prefer. Some of the stated names in the nominating thread included Riverfront Stadium, Riverfront Park, Riverfront Field, Riverfront Ballpark or Riverfront Ball Park. If Riverfront is indeed the choice, and a consensus forms around one name, we’ll use that. Otherwise, we might have a vote-off.

1) First Nine Fields
2) Great American Ball Park
3) River Jordan Ball Park
4) Riverfront
5) Union Grounds

Up next: TBtB goes north of the border. 


* Pete, we’re speaking figuratively.

5) Union Grounds

Porkopolis Park didn't make the cut? :(

Don't recall if this was discussed in the nominations thread, but Union Terminal is about two miles from the ball park. The Hall of Justice from Super Friends was modeled after UT.

By the time we got to the ballot, I would have been okay with any of the results.
