Baseball stadiums you've visited?
« Topic Start: February 21, 2012, 11:23:58 PM »
So who has been to games at the most stadiums (major league only)?

here's my list:
1. Shea, NYM
2. Camden Yards, BAL
3. Nats Park (and RFK)
4. Turner field (the new one), ATL
5. Chase Field, AZ
6. Miller Park, MIL
7. U.S. Cellular Field, CWS
8. Petco, SDP
9. AT&T Park, SFG
10. Fenway Park

AT&T was probably my favorite, just for the look/feel and experience, though it was freaking cold (40's).  Petco and Miller were really nice as well.  The Diamondbacks stadium is wondeful, but I've been to 3 games there and unless you are lucky enough to sit near a transplanted east coaster, you'll find people with no clue as to what's going on on the field.

I'm planning on visiting the new Marlins stadium in August.

My all-time fave was Candlestick...the day games would go from warm and sunny to frigid and swirling fog in about 5 minutes.

Nats Park
3 Rivers
PNC Park

Love Nats Park but PNC has got to be the prettiest park in sports. I just don't know if you can do it any better than that. Three Rivers was a crap hole, so they could only go up from there, but damn did they do it right.

I agree 100%. I know I received some flack for saying PNC blows Camden and Nats Park out of the water after I went there for the first time a couple years ago to see the Nats play the Pirates, but I still stand by that assertion. PNC Park is just insanely beautiful, well designed, and the views of the city and the river... What I'd give to have my season ticket for the Nats at PNC and see that incredible sight line 81 games a year in lieu of the views (And at times, smells) of the Anacostia and cement park across the street on the concourse, and the ugly parking garages from my seat.

My list is equally unimpressive, although I can at least say I have never gone to a MLB park without the Nats also being there...

RFK Stadium
Nats Park
Orioles Park @ Camden Yards
PNC Park
Shea Stadium

I'm hoping to add Fenway to the list when the Nats visit there this June, but that's still totally up in the air.

I've been to 4 torn down stadiums:  the Vet, the Kingdome, renovated old Yankee, Memorial.  Also RFK, which is still standing but out of service.

At first I thought I'd been to only three but suddenly I realize I've been to a few more than that:

Nationals Park
RFK
Memorial Stadium (Balt)
Camden Yards (Balt)
U.S. Cellular Field (CWS)
PNC Park (Pitt)
Progressive Field (Cleveland)
Comerica Park (Det)
Old Yankee Stadium (NY)

This year, keeping my fingers crossed, I hope to add Wrigley Field and Coors Field to my list.

I feel like I'm missing something, but that's the list, I think.
