|Knights exec Dan Rajkowski points out some of the design features of the team's new ballpark.
Dan Rajkowski, executive vice president and chief operating officer Knights, walked us through some of the unique design features of BB&T Ballpark, which will open in April 2014. The $55 million facility will have 8,200 fixed seats with 22 suites and about 1,000 club seats. In addition, there will be a year-round restaurant to be operated by a third party, with space reserved in right field to build a 160-room extended stay hotel.
