Geocache Description:

COORDINATES ARE FOR PARKING AREA. This cache has two purposes: for you to get to know Oakwood Park and for some friendly baseball card trading!

The puzzle of this cache is based on facts and numbers of Oakwood Park. I am a huge fan of the MLB and playing baseball, as well as collecting baseball cards. That's why this cache is out there! You will need to travel around the park and collect different numbers from objects for the coordinates of the final cache location. The park is very walker-biker friendly, so getting around should not be a problem.
So, here we go.

N 43°08. ABC
W 088°05. DEF

A. # of steering wheels on playground multiplied by 2

B. # of Oakwood Park signs

C. # of basketball courts minus # of sand volleyball courts

D. # of seating rows on a set of bleachers

E. # of benches (not picnic tables) around the entire playground area

F. # of total picnic buildings in the park minus 3 (include the restroom one)

I have started the cache off with 50 cards or so. Once you find the cache, all I ask is that if you take a card, leave one or two behind or someting else baseball related to keep the trading going! Cache is winter friendly. There are many muggles who use this park, so try not to look too suspicious! Also, there are some other caches in the area, so make it a day of caching!

UPDATE AUGUST 2012: Although the cache may or may not be at the exact precise location of GZ, you will have little trouble finding it after you get there.

Congrats to The PharmTeam for the FTF!
