Compared to the old Municipal Stadium I, Phoenix Municipal Stadium II (known today as "Phoenix Muni"), is a radically different ballpark. While Municipal Stadium I was a step into the past, Phoenix Muni was a step into the modern age or at least the modern age of 1964. Almost as if to compliment the surrounding martian landscape, this "60's space age" style stadium looks as if it was designed by Jerry Garcia (all it needs is a Volkswagon Vanagon in front, with bright orange and yellow flowers painted all over on it).  In 1964 however, this was very "cutting edge".
