The Ferris wheel added to Modern Woodmen Park this year was selected by Baseball Digest as the best ballpark improvement of 2014.
The Ferris wheel opened on May 24. It is located on the ballpark’s left-field berm and rises 105 feet above the playing field.
One other Ballpark Digest award was given to a Midwest League team. The Fort Wayne TinCaps got the nod for having the best new food item of 2014, “The Big Apple,” which you can read about here.
The five-pound treat also was voted the best dessert in Minor League Baseball’s “Food Fight” competition in July.
