Exhibition doesn't count, correct?

I remember reading and seeing pictures of the Yankees playing a game at the New Orleans Superdome in the 70s.

The only other place in the back of my mind (without looking it up) is Tacoma, WA. For some reason I want to say the Mariners played a couple of games there while having trouble with the Kingdome in the late 90s. Could be wrong though.

You might be thinking of something like the story on the Mariners and the Kingdome in 1994 at http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/sports/2001982925_tile19x.html.

The Superdome games were all exhibitions.

Miami, Florida will be added to that list in April 2012.

Will San Jose, CA be added a few years down the road too?

Now if you really want to make it interesting

This game is based on cities that have hosted a game since 1876

Good Luck

According to this list (http://www.retrosheet.org/neutral.htm), there were several others between 1901 and 1905.

- The New York Highlanders (predecessor of the Yankees) played a game in Newark
- The Boston Beaneaters (predecessor of the Braves) played a game in Warwick, RI
- The Cleveland Blues (predecessor of the Indians) played in Canton, Ft. Wayne, and Columbus
- The Detroit Tigers played in Grand Rapids, Toledo, and Columbus. (The two 1905 Tigers games were moved to Columbus apparently because the Grand Circuit Trotting Meet was happening in Detroit.)
