Sorry if this topic has been talked about before but what stadiums have you been to?

Oh if the White Sox are indeed coming to San Diego, if anybody wants tixs, let me know. I will have extra. Petco is a nice park.

Ahhhh...one of my favorite questions.

The only stadiums I have not been to are: Philly, Pittsburgh, KC, Busch, Petco, Arlington, Pac Bell/SBC, Pro Player and Minute Maid.

Both stadiums in Milwaukee
Busch
Yankee Stadium
Metrodome
Astrodome
Bank One
Anaheim
Both stadiums in San Francisco
Oakland
Cinergy Field in Cincinnati
Kansas City

The Oakland bleachers used to be a fantastic place to watch a game until they changed it for the Raiders. San Francisco has a lot of charm. Yankee Stadium would be great if it wasn't for the Yankee Fans. Wrigley is highly overrated.

Let's see... major league ballparks I've been to?

Comiskey Park
U.S. Cellular
Tiger Stadium
Comerica Park
Busch Stadium
County Stadium
Cinergy Field
Jacobs Field

And since so many of you are counting the Urinal, I'll admit I've been there, too. However since we're obviously watering down our standards, I'll also include:

Flames Field at UIC,
Elfstrom Stadium in Kane County,
Covelski Stadium in South Bend,
Hap Bruno Field in Chicago Heights,
Small Fry Park in Chicago Heights,
and the neighborhood park around the corner from our house where I've played catch with Pants and Sweetpea.

:cool:

Hell, in that case I've also been to:

Von Achen Stadium <sp> in Peoria
Simmons Field in Kenosha
Silver Cross Field in Joliet
Whatever they call:
The ball park in Burlington, IA
The ball park in Battle Creek
The ball park in Lansing, MI
The old ball park in Cedar Rapids
The ball park in Beloit

BTW, I've already purchased a 15-game package for the Cougars, and I'm waiting to see what packages are available for the Jackhammers.

And
The old little league park in Bradley, IL

Most of mine are old stadiums from when I was a child:

Astrodome
Minute Maid
Kingdome
Safeco
Both Commiskeys
Fulton County
Forbes Field
Metropolitan Stadium
Memorial Stadium
Shea
Fenway
Anaheim

I am proud to say that I've never been to the Urinal. My dad, who lived in Chicago for only 3 years while doing a residency at U of Chicago, had the sense to teach me as a mere youngster that if I wanted to root for a Chicago team, to not embarass him but to show that I had good upbringing and proper training and root for the White Sox.

Gene
Won't be a problem. Keep in touch and when the games get closer, I work things out.

Usually get seats field level. Mostly down the lines. Sections 111-117. Sometimes club seats.

Not Crosley, but I saw a twi-night doubleheader in Forbes Field in 1969. Most of the other major league parks I've been to (in Chicago, Milwaukee, Texas and San Diego) are gone. I saw games in Arlington Stadium, but only took a tour of the Astrodome on an afternoon when Tom Seaver was pitching batting practice to his teammates on the Mets.

Anaheim's park was remodeled a few times so it often felt different. It is severely underrated, as Wrigley Field is (and old Comiskey was) overrated. In the new parks in Phoenix and Milwaukee, nobody seems to complain that the upper deck reaches are so steep.

I seem to have been to six minor league parks and have had the opportunity to play in three on days they weren't charging admission.

Major league:

Old and New Comiskey
Milwaukee Co. Stadium
Astrodome
Minute Maid Park (Or, as I call it here in Texas, The Double M Ranch)


Minor league:
That-stadium-in-Geneva-where-Kane-County-plays...
San Antonio - Nelson Wolff Stadium (Double A team for Seattle)

Next on my list -
Round Rock Express (AAA team for Astros next year)
The Ballpark at Arlington (Ameriquest Field)
Albuquerque Isotopes Stadium (whatever its called)
More games at the Double M Ranch

Double-M isn't half bad. Great seats throughout, and the upper deck, which only costs $10, has an awesome view. Double bonus when the roof/left-field "screen door" opens at night for its fireworks show - but it isn't as good as the shows at Comis....errr, The Cell.
