One problem that plagued the Mets' spring stadium-Tradition Field in Port
St. Lucie-was bats. (Think Transylvania, not Louisville Slugger.) In 1998,
the city had to build an intricate system whereby the bats, a protected
species, could leave the stadium without getting back in. There also had
be some alternative roosting spot for the suddenly homeless bats, so the
town built what is known as the St. Lucie Bat House, an eight-foot by
four-foot structure near the stadium, 14 feet off the ground. It is, in
effect, a public housing project for bats. Feel free to visit it.
Personally, bats aren't my thing, so I passed.

Bats at Tradition Field, rats the size of kitty cats at Shea
Stadium......Citi Field can't open soon enough
bats are beneficial and very much misunderstood.
