I have no notes about it being good or bad. Therefore, I'll assume it was acceptable. I remember the entertainment guy being okay. He wasn't too loud, was personable, and didn't get in my way.
It was fine.
Here's the view from behind home plate. Another Utah stadium with a fantastic view of the Wasatch Range.
The better view was from the first base side.
In this photo, you can see the bullpen on the field beyond the third base line, the grassy berm where individuals can bring blankets, enjoy the game, and hope for a foul ball or home run.
Also noted on the leftfield wall is Nick Adenhart's retired number.
Here's a close up of Nick's retired number.
You can also see part of the pitching mound in the bullpen and some fans starting to relax on the berm.
For each strike out, $10 is donated to a local charity. That's nice.
Here's the seating area. The area with the glass windows (some open, some closed) is where the announcer and other officials sit.
I had trouble finding the name of the stadium. In the photo above, it says Brent & Kim Brown Ballpark. The Owlz website calls it the 'Home of the Owlz'.
The visiting team, the Chukars, won this game as noted by the congratulatory handshake. Every single one of the Chukars wore hi-socks. They looked good.
I didn't really find a whole lot to do or see in Orem. There is Provo which is nearby but there wasn't a whole lot to see there either (walking, on foot). I'll post some links below to check out if you're in the area.
