There is still little parking at Cheney Stadium for the casual middle-class fan who decides to go to a ball game. The Rainiers make money by selling parking to Gold Club season ticket holders. Four-fifths of the parking is given up to this and therefore largely empty while the daily parking is full.

The Tacoma City Council promised the fans that they would help the Rainiers address this issue. We will be watching to see if they care about the people.
