The Grand Stand at Springfield.
The grand stand at Hampden Park, Springfield, of which plans have been completed by a Springfield architect, will shortly be erected. The entire number of seats will be twenty one thousand - six thousand more than last year. This increase is at the cost of all positions for tally-hos. The stand is to have twenty-six rows of seats, the highest row being some twenty five feet from the ground, and is to be five hundred feet long, by three hundred and twenty-five wide. Archways at both ends will serve as entrances, and between the seats and the field a space about fifty feet wide will be left for substitutes, reporters and so forth.
