NFT: Favorite MLB ballparks?

SFGFNCGiantsFan : 7/7/2019 7:28 pm
I'm going to be at the Jersey Shore this coming weekend to visit a buddy & he got tixs to Yanks Jays Friday night. I went to a Yankees home game a couple of years back & , I don't mean to offend you Yankee fans, but I wasn't in love with the place. I find Citi to be much more fan friendly if you will. But it got me thinking about my favorite MLB stadiums...

Top 5, off the top of my head.

1) PNC in Pittsburgh. Walking across the Roberto Clemente bridge. The city as a backdrop. My favorite by far.
2) Petco. Awesome place.
3) Wrigley. The ivy, the fans, Murphy's. So much fun.
4) Dodger Stadium. A great place to watch a game.
5) Fenway. The history. It's cramped as hell, but it's special.

Yours?
Definitely  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 7/7/2019 7:31 pm : link
agree with Wrigley.

I actually really like Minute Maid park. Thought it was an indoor park done right.
AT&T in San Fran  
bubba0825 : 7/7/2019 7:34 pm : link
Is awesome
Havenít been to many  
aimrocky : 7/7/2019 7:35 pm : link
But PAC bell (or whatever itís called now) in San Francisco is gorgeous. Coors in Colorado also is top notch.

I love Fenway even though Iím a Yankees fan, although I love Boston.

Agree with you on Citi over Yankee Stadium. Thereís something about Yankee Stadium that doesnít feel inviting. Maybe itís the size.
Camden Yards.

3. Petco


for atmosphere and making a day of it:

1. Fenway
2. Wrigley
Yankees stadium is such a sterile

Seattle, Baltimore and Anaheim were my faves. Great atmosphere and food.

Yankee stadium and Oakland were terrible.
Been to 8 MLB parks...  
BamaBlue : 7/7/2019 8:48 pm : link
I always loved Coors Field in Denver. Not the best facilities (have to give that to the Braves @ SunTrust Field), just a fun place and not too tough to get to and from.

The best ball park for atmosphere was the McCoy Stadium where the Pawtucket Red Sox are playing through 2020. It was built in 1942 and has all of the Fenway/Wrigley charm and the old time baseball feel. The park is surrounded by an old neighborhood. Not sure what happens after the 2020 season, because the PawSox are moving to Worcester, Mass.

I used to take the kids to McCoy when they were little knowing they wouldn't make it past the 6th/7th inning. Agree, great atmosphere, like most minor league parks.

Great place for families. I am however looking forward to Polar Park in Worcester. I think they just broke ground recently. However, if the name Woo-Sox sticks I will hate the Red Sox even more than I do now if that's possible. It's such a stupid name.

Fenway was so overhyped for me

Coors Field is a great place to watch a game. Plenty of nice places to grab a bite beforehand and then wander over. Ticket scalpers are numerous, but helpful. Once went with a large group and scalper directed us to the person that would have the amount of tickets we would need. My only advice would be to avoid 1B/RF line as you are staring into the sun for first part of night game.

Isn't their owner trying to ditch Chase Field?
AT&T Park in SF has to be my favorite.  
Section331 : 7/8/2019 8:28 am : link
Still love Camden Yards, PNC in Pitt; liked Petco in SD, but didn't love it (food and beverage options were outstanding, tho); Citi Field; Fenway.

Wrigley is great as a museum piece, a must-see, but it isn't a great viewing experience. Unless you are sitting up front, some of your view will be obstructed by beams.

Good call on Coors, beautiful park, and not a bad seat in the place.
Echo what others have said about  
mfsd : 7/8/2019 8:32 am : link
Wrigley, Petco, Coors, and San Francisco - it was Pac Bell Park when I was there years ago, think itís Oracle Park now

Iíll add Progressive Field in Cleveland to the mix, hit a game there last summer, was pleasantly surprised by the ballpark and Cleveland in general, sneaky nice town and place to see a game
Both Petco...  
FatMan in Charlotte : 7/8/2019 8:35 am : link
and Coors rank high for me. Both really accessible and have a lot of options in and nearby the park to hang out. We usually will go for a drink at a rooftop bar just before a Rockies game and then head in.

I like Camden Yards as well, but the surrounding area is a lot less inviting.

Honorable Mention to Pittsburgh. It used to be a shithole when it was Three Rivers, but the new park and the surrounding area have been vastly improved
Best I've been to  
Chris684 : 7/8/2019 8:43 am : link
Camden Yards, Wrigley and Fenway.

Dying to see both PNC and AT&T.

Old Yankee Stadium was a great, new Yankee Stadium is horrible.

I'm a Mets fan so I loved Shea (knowing full well it was a dump) and Citifield is also very nice but not on Camden Yards level.

Did not like when I went to Skydome (Now Rogers Center, is it?)

The Vet is easily the worst place I ever saw a baseball game.
Fenway, Wrigley, and Camden Yards  
rnargi : 7/8/2019 8:44 am : link
for the ones that still exist, but nothing tops Old Yankee Stadium for me. I'd like to get to some of the new(ish) stadiums. Been to a ton of the old that no loger exist.
I liked the Rogers Center  
pjcas18 : 7/8/2019 8:56 am : link
I went to a Yankees Blue Jays game on a random Tuesday night.

anyway, it was a young crowd, place was banged out, and I had a lot of fun.

Not a beautiful park like Safeco (I was there for one of juniors last games and the roof was open) such a great scene, but Toronto was a lot of fun.

Fenway is a dump yes, concourse still floods too in heavy rains, but it's more fun to be around than any other ballpark.

Camden Yards park is great and it used to be fun - sliders, pickles pub, etc.. 3 or 4 years ago I forgot where i parked my car and walked 4 blocks from the the park and felt like I walked into a scene from the Wire. I hear it's gotten worse. Just not a safe area anymore.
it was never a particularly safe area

The park itself is still wonderful, but you're right - don't linger in the surrounding area.

is that the SF Giants' park has been called three names already. Pac Bell, AT&T, and Oracle. I have no idea which one is right, just think it is funny!
If Fenway..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 7/8/2019 9:43 am : link
didn't have history, it would've been razed years ago. Terrible place to watch a game. Possibly the worst stadium in any league in terms of viewability for certain seats/sections.

If you want a park with tradition, then take in Wrigley.
I am actually going to Citizens Bank in Philly this weekend  
Essex : 7/8/2019 9:44 am : link
to meet some old friends as a meeting point for a few of us who kind of live where that is a convenient middle (certainly not to see the Phillies or anything Philly related). I always see that that park is ranked pretty poorly. I have never been there yet, but it doesn't look that bad from TV. Is it really that bad?

I've only been once, but IMO it's fine, and a million times better than the Vet.

Everyone has their own opinion on this and certainly mine is not better than anyone else's, but I love Fenway and I say that as a die-hard Yankees fan. True, Fenway has some extremely poor seat locations; for instance, if you are sitting at Pesky's pole your seat faces the green monster instead of homeplate. But, you can plan around that now with the web, as many websites have seat locations where you can check before buying to see your seat angle to stay away from poles etc. The Grandstand at fenway if you plan it right can be an excellent seat and very affordable. More importantly, though, from my perspective, the beauty of Fenway is in the sheer size of the actual playing field. If you sit behind home plate you cannot even capture the entire stadium in your field of view, which is insane now. Second, and maybe this is just the history of it, but I am giving it much more of a factor in my score, the hidden stairway, the climbing up on the wall of the monster, etc etc is just so much fun to see. I get the new parks are spacious and luxurious, but I kinda feel all the retro parks are the same. Are their differences between Oracle and CitiField or Camden Yards? Yes, of course, do they really make that much of a difference? I am not so sure. Finally, while Wrigley is undoubtedly a better place to watch the game as a spectator, I think Boston is a much more impressive stadium structurally, aestically, etc.

Pete in MD : 7/8/2019 10:05 am : link
Best I've been to: Camden Yards, PETCO, Oracle, Old Yankee, Shea (probably due to nostalgia.)

Still need to visit: Citi, PNC, T-Mobile, Dodger, Wrigley, Chase, Miller, Target, and others

Unimpressed: Citizens Bank (whole place feels like a Camden Yards rip-off), Nationals, Busch, Fenway (yup, it's old, cramped, and lots of less than friendly fans and stadium staff.)
all the hate on yankee stadium  
Justlurking : 7/8/2019 10:07 am : link
have you all been there in years? It was a sterile corporate place, and yeah there are still club seats, etc., but they have made so many changes and it has its own personality now. The bars in centerfield and upstairs as well as the ATT bar, the old food court bar and the roasted chicken/steak place are great. Views are great, bareburger and mighty quinn's replaced johnny rockets and brother jimmys, there are not huge lines compared to other stadiums (considering the crowds). And Lobels still > everything else.

Compared with citi which takes forever to get in (seriously, have never been to a stadium worse at getting people through security), has huge lines at the good food options, zero surrounding area and pays more homage to the dodgers than the mets, and if there are actually people at Citi the traffic backup on shea bridge is always brutal. Add in the owners OBNOXIOUS suites right behind home plate (and the 3rd suite for Bernie Madoff) and im just always confused by the love of citi and hate on Yankee. Seems like it is just something that people repeat and then it becomes "fact."

I have been to both this year and nothing anyone will say will sway me on this.

AT&T is great, Coors is a super sleeper and may be top 5, Wrigley is a ton of fun as an experience, stadium is ok - its nostalgic but lacks basic amenities like urinals. Fuck troughs. Will be hitting petco in august and am excited.
I liked old Yankee stadium much better  
pjcas18 : 7/8/2019 10:17 am : link
site of my first ever major league game (Yankees Angels late 70's weeknight, Reggie hit a triple) and many Yankees Red Sox battles. I am the only Mets fan in a massive extended family of diehard Yankees and Red Sox fans.

I was at Yankee Stadium for Pedro vs Clemens (4th of July?) game and my seats were literally higher than the foul pole.

I saw birds flying below me like they were scared to go higher.

but it still felt like I was close to to field.

I don't get that same feel at new Yankee stadium.

I do get that same kind of feel at Citi. You just seem closer to the game.

I always liked Dodger Stadium when I lived out there  
Greg from LI : 7/8/2019 10:17 am : link
But that was about 20 years ago. Don't know how it's held up since then.

One thing I loved about it at the time was they still played the organ the entire game there rather than playing music clips. I think it was the last park that did that.
With Camden Yards,

This makes no sense to me. In the old place you had 30,000 seats upstairs, new place has 30,000 downstairs. So not sure where you've been sitting but my experience is completely different. I loved the old building but it was a piece of shit and it was literally falling apart. The new place isnt perfect but the romanticism of the old place is way overblown for me. Had tons of special memories there but it was time for a new building.
it's not about romanticism  
pjcas18 : 7/8/2019 10:45 am : link
or amenities, it's about proximity to the field and feel.

not going to argue it, just how I felt from being in both.

I think the old stadium was more vertical allowing people in higher seats to still remain closer to the field - at least that's how it felt.

Stade Olympique in Montreal. I've never been to the Trop in Tampa, but Olympic was what I've read the Trop is. Terrible lighting, ugly, no character. The worst major league park I've been to (the Vet was way up there, though).

This. The seats in the bleachers don't even face home plate. You have to sit with your body facing third plate and head turned towards home.

Tons of obstructed view seats as well with all the support columns.

I was at Fenway for the Zimmer Pedro fight and I've never felt such an atmosphere like that at a baseball game. I thought the crowd was going to spill onto the field and riot. They stopped beer sales in the fourth inning.

I really wanted to like Oracle Park in SF, but garbage site lines for a new park. I was sitting in left field club level and couldn't see half of left field.

Had tons of special memories there but it was time for a new building.

PJ is 100% correct in my opinion (again this all subjective). I sat in the third to last row for the game six disaster in 2004 and I felt like we were all right next to Shilling cursing and screaming at him. The old stadium was uncomfortable in terms of leg room, the corridors were trash, but there was literally not a bad seat in the house. The new stadium is nice, it is big, it is spacious, the corridors are all huge, going to the bathroom is generally a breeze (although the lines at the concessions are still ridiculously long), but the stadium is so much bigger. A set in the Terrace or Grandstand is much higher than a seat in the in the old Upper Reserved or Upper Box at Yankees stadium. Also the old Yankee Stadium kind of went directly up, so you were not far back from the field, the new stadium is designed more on a slant to be as spacious as it is, so even a seat in the Infield 100s (not Legends Suites) is much further back than the Main Reserveds of the old stadium. I don't mind the new Yankee stadium, its ok, but it is far from great and not a particularly great place to watch a game because of how it is constructed.

You are correct that Citi has its issues and you correctly identified getting into the stadium as a nightmare. The sightlines and proximity from the field make Citi a better ballpark imo. I usually go when the Yankees play there so the games are crowded so that probably affects my review, but you are right that that stadium is not built for crowds.

I agree. I loved the old stadium, even as a Mets fan. Went to college in the Bronx, so I spent a fair amount of time in the $1.25 bleacher seats. The new joint just doesn't have the same character. The amenities are fine, and I do like the bars on the outer rim of the stadium, but I don't think they have the variety of food and beverage options that Citi has, and the seats upstairs do seem further from the field.
The decks at YS3 are indeed further away from the field than YS2  
Greg from LI : 7/8/2019 11:02 am : link
That's absolutely true, and one of the reasons the new place doesn't get quite as loud and intimidating as the old place. The seating is more horizontally spaced than the old park, and there's much more foul territory than the old park (other than behind home plate).

Old YS:



New YS



Look at the way the third deck in the old place hung over the second deck, completely covering it up. Now, the second deck is wide open and the third deck begins at the back of the second deck. Also, look at how much more open space there is in the seats protected by the infamous "moat" compared to the field-level box seats of the old stadium.
Of those I have been to  
AnnapolisMike : 7/8/2019 11:06 am : link
Wrigley and Camden Yards are the best by far.

Fenway is so unique...but a terrible place to watch a game.

The new Yankee stadium is just so blah.
Can't speak towards a lot of the modern stadiums  
Stu11 : 7/8/2019 11:13 am : link
as I took a cross country trip with a buddy in '96 where we visited like 20 stadiums but many of them are gone- the old Busch stadium, Tiger Stadium, 3 Rivers/Riverfront. I agree that Coors is underated. Back then it sold out every game, so they put these Rock pile seats on sale the day of the game. like bleachers in dead center elevated. The stadium and views of the Rockies are spectacular. Dodger stadium is a classic. In August the family is taking a trip to So Cal and catching a game at Petco and the Yanks at Dodger Stadium. Any advice on Petco would be welcomed.
I agree that The new Yankee stadium has improved in recent years. Yes the upper deck is steeper, and listen I have a tone of great memories from the old stadium, but anyone saying convenience wise its on the same planet as the new one is speaking more from nostalgia than reality. The old stadium if you were anywhere near 6 feet your knees where in your chin when you sat in the upper deck. also the concourses at the new stadium are 1000 times better. So much wider and open and you can see the game from them. I'm not real caught up in food options, but The new stadium definitely has better ones.
I will agree that upstairs in the old place was better  
Justlurking : 7/8/2019 11:22 am : link
But there are more seats downstairs in the new place. And the view there is better.

As for not getting loud, i assume none of you went the past 2 octobers? The Houston series was crazier than almost any crowd i ever saw in the old place and only time i ever heard the old place louder was the Aaron Boone game.

Im not trying to get into yankees vs yankees stadium. I get the love for the old building. just saying the new place takes a lot of heat and it has really grown on me and developed its own personality. I think lots of the critiques are from ten years ago not present.

Good point! I indeed meant the renovated stadium but I was fortunate to have gone to the original as well.
Sadly, I haven't really been to more than a few  
Matt M. : 7/9/2019 1:44 pm : link
But, I will say, that as a Yankee fan, I hate the new Yankee Stadium. It has a sterile, corporate, too large feel. It is not intimate like the old Stadium and doesn't give me that same feel. I think it sucks and is a WAY overpriced tribute to corporate assholes.

The seating is definitely farther away in the 3rd/4th deck (they combine for what was simply the 3rd deck on the old stadium), but the foul ground is about the same. The field dimensions are almost identical.

Because I used to work out in Houston, Iíve been there a zillion times, almost always walking from downtown hotel where I would stay. The people are terrific, ďdeep in the heart of TexasĒ. Astros have a good thing going there, fans, radio guys, the team and the ballpark are all terrific.

Camden Yards is still a great place.

I mean, Fenway and Wrigley have the history and the personality but theyíre not really great places to see a game if you ask me. Still, either of those places are better than the sterile and bloodless corporate cash register where the Yankees play. I still cringe at the thought of tearing down the greatest baseball cathedral in the history of the game.

Really want to go to Petco, hoping my company opens up an HQ there.
