Just booked a flight to ATL for Nats-Braves in early September.
This will be major league ballpark number 40. Only three to go.

Cool!  I had them all at one point (42 ballparks total) but have fallen behind, now lacking both NY ballparks, Twins, Marlins, and Atlanta. Guess I need to start planning some trips.


What are your favorites? Mine are SF, Pittsburgh, and SD. Been to Wrigley a few times, and it’s nostalgic, but after a few times of waiting in line for the small bathrooms and scarce concessions, the appeal wanes a bit.

I put Pittsburgh, Wrigley, and Camden Yards at the top. I know elsewhere people were enumerating the Yard's flaws, but IMO it really holds up after all these years. SD and SF are both great too.
Also: going to Fenway at the end of July. I went to a game there in 1980, haven't been back since.

Yep. It was the middle of August, and the chili stand was doing a booming business selling piping hot chili. The most popular vendor was the guy walking the aisles with a huge dispenser of hot Yuban coffee. It was bizarre.

I used to go to Fenway in June or July most every year when I was in my 20's.  It was always a great place to see a game - much better than Yankee Stadium

I was lucky enough to go on a beautiful day, for a Saturday afternoon game. Glad it wasn't a night game.
The garlic fries at Candlestick were probably the best thing I've ever eaten at a ballpark.

Oh gawd, yes!  The SF garlic fries! We still talk about how great they were.
