I grew up in Richmond. I saw Dusty Baker and Ralph Garr play at old Parker Field. When the Diamond was built, it was praised as a simple, elegant minor-league park. It easily meets its designed purpose: to watch a professional baseball game from a comfortable distance at a reasonable price. It's easy to get to, with lots of parking. Finding your seat is simple, and everyone can see the whole field. There are concessions and bathrooms. What more do you need? It is certainly no-frills, and for that reason it's an excellent venue for minor-league baseball. You pay a few bucks for a ticket (cheaper than a movie!) and watch the game with your friends. Maybe I'm a fuddy-duddy, but all the whining about "lack of facilities" doesn't register with me. If you want air conditioning and fine food, go to a restaurant. At the Diamond, you are there with the players. I have nothing bad to say about this stadium.
