Which ones have you been to? What is your favorite? Which ones do you want to go to? Which ones do you have no desire to ever go to?

Been:

Fulton County (don't really remember much, I was 7)

Turner Field

Wrigley

Miller Park

Camden Yards

Nationals Park

Coors Field

Favorite:

1. Miller Park - Roof was open. Awesome looking stadium from the outside. You can see it from miles away. Good atmosphere. Really cool design overall. Fans gave me a ton of poo for being an opposing fan (braves).

2. Camden Yards - Really cool stadium. Bars and food within the park are very good. Excellent view of downtown. Fans were very polite. Orioles suck, so there was not many people there and no excitement.

Want to go to:

AT&T Park

PNC Park

Fenway (fug boston and the red sox, but it's too historic to not want to go)

Petco Park

Never want to go to:

Rogers Center

Sun Life Stadium (fka Pro Player Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Land Shark Stadium)

Been:

U.S. Cell

Wrigley

Miller Park

1) The Cell

2) Miller Park

3) Wrigley

Love The Cell, though that is obvious.

Miller is just an amazing park, great field and seating, amazing food, just overall great atmosphere.

*Fun fact - I played at the mini Miller Park outside of the stadium.*

I love and hate Wrigley. I love it because it is a beautiful place to watch a ballgame, but I hate it because it is so damn old.

Want to go:

Every other park

Been to:

Turner Field

Citizen's Bank Park

The old Veteran's Stadium

Coors Field

I need to get out and see more parks

I liked all of them about the same for different personal reasons. All three are great parks.

Really want to see AT&T park in San Fran, the say that is the best.

Never want to go:

I honestly wouldn't turn a trip to any ball park down, but the Rays and Marlins stadiums might make me want to throw myself off the upper level.

been to:

Citizen's Bank Park

Veterans Stadium

Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Nationals Park

Shea Stadium

New Yankee Stadium

CBP is the best. Of course, I have been to many games there, including 2 World Series games and it is the easiest for me to get to (20 min drive).

We had bleacher seats at Yankee Stadium this past June vs the Phillies. Got a lot of poo out there with that NY scum.

Went to Nationals Park 8/1 to see Strasburg (he was injured though) but still had a great time. So many Phillies fans were there. Worst part was the 4 hour ride in traffic home.

Shea Stadium was awesome. The Met fans weren't really even that bad. Yankee fans were animals. We had civil conversations with the Met fans which kind of surprised me.

Oriole Park I have been to a few times, never seen the Phillies play there though. Went back in the day during Ripken's streak (don't remember which game) and got free tickets last September and went down. It was pretty sad because there was no one there.

I also saw the Phils take on the Braves at Champion Stadium in Disney World this past spring training.

I would like to go to Citi Field, Fenway Park and PETCO.

i also have been to Rogers Centre but I was staying in the hotel connected to the stadium. I did go in the bar that overlooks the field though while there was a game going on. Jays/Yankees last labor day weekend.

There was a poll just mentioned in an article by the company Sports Travel and Tours that give people packages to visit all the baseball stadiums. They give surveys to their customers asking them to rank the best ball parks that they have visited. The article doesn't give the exact results but a few that are mentioned are:

1. Citizens Bank Park - Philly

2. PNC Park - Pittsburgh

3. ?

4. Yankee Stadium

5. AT&T Park - San Fran

Been to:

Wrigley

Comiskey

US Cellular

Old County Stadium (Brewers AL time)

Miller Park

Busch Stadium (old and new)

AT&T Park

Petco

Dodgers Stadium

Turner Field

Camden Yards

Old HH Humphreydome

I think I might have been to a few others that are currently escaping my old brain.

My favorite is Miller Park and Busch stadium. Beautiful, great food, ample parking, a good family experience. I don't like the Brewers or Cards, but they got the stadiums right.

My least favorite is the home of my beloved Cub. Yeah, it is historic, and looks beautiful, but the amenities suck, the parking sucks, the food blows...it feels its age when it comes to the extras.

Yeah, I always hated having to wade through 3 inches of urine to use the bathroom.

AT&T park is amazing, I converted from a A's fan to a Giants fan because of that park.

Sitting up on the terrace on a hot summer's day enjoying a hot dog and a cold beer overlooking the bay is a great baseball experience.

Much better then a room temp beer overlooking Oakland's industrial sector while at a A's game.
