Come summer of 2016, the Frisco RoughRiders (the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers) will have a 174-foot-long lazy river beyond the right field wall at Dr Pepper Ballpark.
Because why not?
The RoughRiders announced Thursday they will be adding a lazy river longer than an Olympic-sized swimming pool to their stadium. There will also be 8-foot waterfalls included in the structure.
Let's get some fun facts on the Choctaw Lazy River:

Now that really helps put things in perspective.
According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the lazy river won't be available to everyone: "First dibs will go to groups of 200 who can buy out the river and the rest of the hospitality space, which will include food and non-alcoholic drinks."
The general public will, however, be able to buy tickets for the lazy river on "Thirsty Thursdays" for $39, a price that includes food and drinks.
Per Valerie Wigglesworth of the Dallas Morning News, the Choctaw Lazy River is projected to open in June.
