Though only a little more than a decade years old, Beehive Field was obsolete by the mid-90's. Ballpark design during the mid-80's wasn't very elaborate. Beehive Field was no exception. A lot happened in that decade however, and ballparks went through a whirlwind of design changes. Older and recent stadiums were quickly being scrapped in favor of beautiful ornamental ballparks with a retro feel.
