Your next clue that the 2012 season will be here sooner than expected: the scoreboard went up at Blue Wahoos Park, new home of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA; Southern League).
Really, we have nothing else to add. The new ballpark, designed by Populous, will open on Pensacola’s waterfront this April 5. The nice thing about this photo: you can see exactly how close to the waterfront the ballpark lies.
