I noticed in the MCW classified used equipment an ad for info wanted about the football ride. This looks a lot like John L Marconis but not exactly.
can anyone tell? I thought his was the only one made but maybe it was just the only one in the US.

Marconi's piece is an ARM Touchdown, if my memory serves me right.

After clicking on the link, and browsing the page, it appears that the piece pictured is a Fabbri.

Yep, gondolas shaped like baseballs, very interesting looking wheel. I have a photo somewhere (did you think I wouldn't? lol).

Ferris Wheel
Located on the third base side of the Park in the Brushfire Grill, this 50-foot Ferris wheel features cars shaped like baseballs that can seat up to five passengers and is wheelchair accessible.


Comerica Park also has a Chance Carousel:

An ornate carousel, featuring 30 hand-painted tigers and two chariots, is located at the base of the food court behind the first base area. The ride is fully wheelchair-accessible.

Nope, Giovanni's cousin has one in Italy. It's themed "Super Bowl" I pictures of it with me in Florida last week. Too bad you didn't make this post then.
