Notes The concessions are some of the best in the league, grilled hot dogs really are good.  Apparently the concession buildings have been upgraded as well.  Your best best as a visiting fan is to park along Merrifield road or at the middle school next to the airport. Lights are not very bright, probably the most poorly lit stadium in the SMAC, making photography, radio broadcasting, filming, stat keeping, and reporting difficult.  NOTE ON THE LIGHTS: The lights have been upgraded and replaced in time for the 2014 season. The eight fixtures will be cut down to four light poles, and the two poles on each side in front of the stands will be removed, they were paid for in part by Supermodel Kate Upton, the daughter of Niles AD Jeff Upton.
