Mallards Announce Great Dane Duck Blind Improvements

At the Madison Mallards First Pitch Wednesday night the Mallards announced several new ballpark improvements at the Warner Park Community Center.

The major announcement of the night is the construction of the new Great Dane Rooftop building in the Great Dane Duck Blind. Construction has started on a new 30 foot by 70 foot concession building in the Great Dane Duck Blind featuring restrooms, a full kitchen and 250 seats on the rooftop of the building. The new building doubles the number of restrooms and concessions to improve the fan experience at the ballpark. Construction is on schedule to be completed for opening day on June 1, 2006. The new Great Dane Duck Blind Rooftop building will serve both the general public and the fans in the Great Dane Duck Blind.

In addition to the new and improved Great Dane Duck Blind the Mallards have also added the Snack Shack, a new concession stand behind the first base bleachers. The new first base concession stand will feature an array of specialty foods, such as panini sandwiches, hand scooped custard, slush puppies, fresh squeezed lemonade, and other culinary delights.
