STADIUM NAME: Kauffman Stadium
DESCRIPTION: Outfield LF & RF Wall LED Signage - At Kauffman, the LED boards extend further than what is currently in The Show. In The Show, there is a fixed graphic at the end towards the bullpen(s), but in reality, the LED board extends all the way to the bullpen edge. Only the last graphic, towards center field, is non-LED.

STADIUM NAME: Kauffman Stadium
DESCRIPTION: Grass Pattern - I love when the Royals mow the crown in to the outfield grass. But truthfully, this was almost exclusively used in the playoff runs of 2014-15. Seeing it still in for every game in The Show makes it less special. I would prefer The Show had the much more common checker pattern for the field, and thick parallel lines in foul territory as the Royals use 99% of the time.

STADIUM NAME: Kauffman Stadium
DESCRIPTION: Hall of Fame Glass Graphic - Every year, the Royals have some kind of Royals branding graphic applied to the HoF glass in left field. Also, for the past few years, they have the green Commerce Bank splash advertisement on the right side. Something that mimics this with Royals branding would be much better than the blank gray glass that The Show has had for years.
PICTURES: (will add later)

STADIUM NAME: Kauffman Stadium
DESCRIPTION: Upper Deck Advertisements - In The Show, these upper deck vomitories are solid concrete. However, in real life, the two big ones on the sides of the upper deck should have large (mostly blue) sponsor graphics on them. Also, at the top of the press box area are two long 'roof tops'. The Show has these as a plain color, but these should also be sponsored mostly blue.
PICTURES: (will add later)

STADIUM NAME: Kauffman Stadium
DESCRIPTION: Kauffman Stadium Broadcast Pitching Cam - It seems like the angle of the camera is just a bit off. The zoom is about right, but I think the camera needs to swing around to show a little bit more to the right. I think the focal length of the camera needs changed a little too, because you can see that the dirt circle around home plate runs off the left and right edges in the real broadcast. It's easiest to compare when you look at the advertisement panels on the backstop. It doesn't take away from the game, but as someone that watches most Royals games, and also plays loads of The Show each year, it's enough that I notice it and it takes away just enough from the realism.
PICTURES: (will add later)
Those are all great observations, surely you've seen that Kauffman Stadium is misspelled on your home team's dugout? That's sort of a big deal if you ask me.

I actually did just notice this last night!
'Kaufman Stadium', I believe it says.
Thanks for the reminder!

In real life, the dirt is much more brown, and not gray. Also, the bricks behind home plate are a much darker brownish red, compared to MLB 18.

As much as I love what you have pointed out, it's not even worth it to show this. tnixen and I have been pointing out the flaws in this stadium for years and it always falls on deaf ears every year. It's almost like they get ho-hum when it gets to be time to work on CBP.

I am still going to keep playing the game because I love it, but don't ever expect anything to be done to the stadium.

Agree with you 100%. Same thing with Fenway Park and the fence behind the Green Monster seats that they leave out every year. And the parks with missing tarps, like PNC and Great American.

After having a very generic looking Suntrust Park last year, I'm thrilled with the 2018 version. It is much more detailed and truer to life. Well done, SDS!

Re: MLB 18 Stadium Accuracy / Feedback Thread

STADIUM NAME: AT&T Park

ISSUE ONE: LED Lighting
DESCRIPTION: Prior to the 2017 season, the Giants installed modern LED light panels on all of the park's light towers.

ISSUE TWO: Bullpen Bench
DESCRIPTION: The bench in the Giants bullpen should be removed; it's not there in real life.
PICTURE:

Spoiler


ISSUE THREE: Video Board Light Towers
DESCRIPTION: The "Fair or Foul" sign should be moved from the left-center field light tower to the right-center field light tower. Based on recent photos provided by West Coast Turf, the sign should be under a small video board which was not present in 2017. A similar sized board was installed on the left-center field tower during the 2016 season and keeps track of the day's 50/50 raffle total. There's a pitch clock under this board. Also, there should be one more ad on the left-center field light tower, in line with the Majestic ad. Lastly, the foghorn is nowhere to be found in those recent Twitter photos. I'll try to figure out where it's been moved to ASAP.

ISSUE FOUR: Right Field Seating
DESCRIPTION: Seating in the right field "arcade" (sections 145-152) should be bleacher-style, like in left field.

Once the regular season starts up and I make it to a few games, I'll have more information and photos about extended netting, video board layout, etc..

STADIUM NAME: Oakland Coliseum

ISSUE ONE: Tarps
DESCRIPTION: During the 2017 season, the A's removed the tarps from the main Coliseum seating bowl (sections 300-334). Based on pictures from last Sunday's exhibition game against the Giants, it appears that the tarps will also be gone from Mt. Davis for the 2018 season.

ISSUE TWO: Light Towers
DESCRIPTION: In real life, the Coliseum's light towers are, for lack of a better term, thinner than they are in game.
PICTURES:

ISSUE THREE: Treehouse
DESCRIPTION: In time for the 2018 season, the A's added a new bar/party area in left field called The Treehouse.
PICTURES:

Spoiler


Spoiler


ISSUE FOUR: Cache Creek Ad
DESCRIPTION: There's a large Cache Creek Casino Resort ad located to the left of the left field video board.
PICTURE:

Spoiler


ISSUE FIVE: Bill King Logo Above Broadcast Booth
DESCRIPTION: It's nice that the Holy Toledo! sign in center field made it into the game this year, but the Bill King memorial logo, located above the broadcast booths, is still absent.
PICTURE:

Spoiler


ISSUE SIX: Bill King HOF Plaque
Description: A new plaque was added on the first base side of the plaza (2nd) level facade in honor of 2017 Ford C. Frick recipient Bill King. The current order of the plaques on that side are, moving towards home plate, Jackie Robinson's #42, Walter Haas' plaque (A's Logo), Bill King's HOF Plaque, Dick Williams' HOF Plaque, and Tony La Russa's HOF plaque.
PICTURE:

ISSUE SEVEN: Mt. Davis Ads
DESCRIPTION: A number of ads were added to the facing of Mt. Davis prior to the 2016 season. The ad space furthest to the left now displays the Treehouse logo instead of the Bud Light logo.
