GETTING CLOSE: Rajkowski addressed the ongoing construction at the ballpark, which is scheduled to open April 11. He said, "The seats are going in. The field (was) laid on Monday. Once you put a field down, that really tells people it’s getting close. At the end of the year, we’ll have a temporary certificate of occupancy. ... Our goal is to have our staff in there in the second week of February." He added painting at the facility is "85 percent finished." Rajkowski: "We don’t want to be opening this without it totally ready for the fans. A lot of the scoreboards, video boards, will go in after the first of the year, so we’re not really intruding on the construction. (We want to) really get the production room right, get the run of show correct, sound systems perfect, field lighting perfect." Rajkowski said of ticket sales, "We’re about 45 percent of our goal of 3,600 season tickets -- that’s outside of our suites and clubs and all that. Suites are gone, we found we had a few club seats but I think we have a waiting list so those will be gone. Now the season tickets are the ones our staff is working on" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 11/5).
