Links to out of town park visit reports collected here.

Miller Park    http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=35659.0

Petco Park    http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=35618.0

Wrigley Field   http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=35537.0

Turner Field     http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=29030.0

(This is a few years old and the pics don't load anymore.  Would appreciate feedback on whether it belongs here or not)



I'm sure we have old trip reports that may date back to the early days of the forum.  Send me any such links and I'll add them here.

Any other ideas or suggestions?

I've been to Fenway, Shea (the old one), Camden Yards, Turner Field (now gone), Chase Field, Marlins Park, Guarantee Rate Field (when it was US Cellular Park), Miller Park, Petco, and AT&T Park.

Of those, Chase, Petco, Camden, and AT&T were my favorites, with AT&T being the overall best (even though it was April and about 50 degrees.)

Oh gosh, y'all want any writeups on the Texas ballparks?

Yankee Stadium is not worth going to.
I've heard even their peanuts are crap.

The one decent thing there is the food, but really that's just if you're rich enough to experience their club-level offerings. The concessions are totally fine but nothing noteworthy. The stadium itself is a giant concrete mall with a baseball field in it. It's awful. By far the worst MLB stadium I've experienced.

I'm glad I got to see the old Yankee Stadium back in 2004 (couldn't believe the number and variety of concessions on offer; unfortunately Monument Park was closed that day)...haven't been to the new one yet.

He was able to see the signs the TB catcher was throwing down from behind home plate?

Of interest was the catcher - one Wilson Ramos.
