No stadium seating, but the seats are comfy and not ripped up. The front wall used to not have a ticket booth or doors. It used to be a solid wall. The only entrance used to be on the 19th St side. There used to be a ton of bike racks out front back in the day (and they were filled too). The corner where it sits was part of a dairy farm. Location was chosen to take advantage of a new gate the post was going to put up.

This is a June 1975 ad from the Lawton Constitution. I thought it was appropriate since we had a pretty good one in LA tonight.

Did they get the city wrong again?

Only the people that want to get it right.
