S-Indians adding Depot to ballpark

The Spokane Indians have begun work on a group seating area at Avista Stadium built like a train car.The Spokane Indians (short season; Northwest League) have begun work on a group area at Avista Stadium built like a train car.

The Depot is a replica train car and will be located just beyond the right-field wall. The railroad tracks, located nearby and visible from the stadium, provided inspiration for the concept. The Depot will accommodate up to 60 people and includes its own private concession stand; fans will have the option of sitting inside The Depot or outside in stadium style seating just above the outfield wall.

This project is funded by the Spokane Indians and is made possible because of Avista's support of the stadium through the Avista Stadium title sponsorship. The work will be coordinated by the stadium's owner, Spokane County, and CPI construction and consulting services. Uphus Construction, Inc., the project's general contractor, will complete the project within 4 to 6 weeks allowing the Indians to debut this new addition to Avista Stadium on Opening Day, June 18, 2010.

"The Depot will be a great addition to Avista Stadium," said Otto Klein, Indians Senior Vice President, "We're always looking for new amenities and to improve upon one of the best baseball stadiums in the Northwest."
