As the Cincinnati Reds were gearing up to take the field at Great American Ball Park, HGC Construction was putting the finishing touches on the newly renovated Scouts Club.
The area formerly known as Scouts Alley is located just above the Diamond Club in the lower level behind home plate. It used to have basic concession areas and restrooms in the area that is available only to the 1,100 to 1,200 fans in the Scout seats section.
This area of the ballpark has been on the list for renovation for some time and Phil Castellini finally decided this year was the time to do it. HGC Construction was excited to partner with the Reds on this transformational project.
Some of the features of the newly renovated area include:
- An array of home plates, fabricated by Stanton Millworks , adorn the area’s ceiling.
- A wall features photos and descriptions of scouts and the scouting process in a nod to the history of Reds scouting.
- A new full-service bar to the concession area called Bar 80/20 after the typical scout grading scale for prospects, ranking them on a scale of 20 to 80 on each skill.
- A walk-up food market that allows fans to grab what they want and pay at the register as they leave the area.
- Interactive touchscreen displays that allow fans to see real-time stats and analytics.
