Favorite Stadium?

SDS

I'm really interested to see what stadiums y'all have been to, as well as which one has the best stadium food. I hope to visit every one of them anyways after college, but want to note any pointers. Thanks!

SDS

I have been to around 15 stadiums (29 years old). Petco Park is probably my favorite for the food and craft beer selection! Plus San Diego is beautiful.

SDS

42 MLB Stadiums

Best: PNC
Worst (Active): Oakland
Worst (All-Time): Olympic
Most Overrated: PacBell/Oracle
Most Underrated: Citizen's Bank
Most Depressing: Comerica (though to be fair, my only visit was 2003 when they were really tearing it up!)
Biggest Difference of Opinion vs. Everyone Else: Tropicana. I'm not saying in any way that it's good, but they at least try REALLY hard. Every square inch is themed within an inch of it's life.

Retired Parks I've been to: Arlington,
The Ballpark @ Arlington,
Astrodome,
Old Yankee,
Metrodome,
Shea,
the Vet,
Joe Robbie,
Olympic,
RFK,
The Ted,
Old Busch,
Qualcomm

Only been to Coors and Guarenteed Rate Field. Both fields were really nice, Coors though is far superior.

SDS

Been to about 15 parks..

Best atmosphere for baseball was Dodger Stadium, but it might have been because my seats were insane. Right behind 3rd base dugout.

I don't like Comerica at all...
I loved tiger stadium as a kid but it was comically tight in there...

Go to Rogers Centre 3-5 times a year, and it's a concrete graveyard
In '15-'16 when it was sell outs every night, when the roof was open, it is amazing though. Jays fans are loud and into it when the team is winning

The K is a beautiful place to watch baseball. Also Coors Field and Busch Stadium are very, very nice.

Want to hit up Kauffman and Busch, but need to find a reason to go to KC or St. Louis...
Still looking for a reason lol

Lol admittedly it does take a long time to come up with a reason.

I've been to Petco, Oracle Park, Safeco field, Angel stadium of Anaheim, The kingdome, and Chase field.

Petco and Safeco are the best visualy.

Best experience was probably at the Cubs spring training facility in Arizona though.

Saw the world baseball classic in Anaheim.

Don't really remember much about the Kingdome because i was young when i went to those games.

Some day I plan on seeing the 30 stadiums as a roadtrip. I really want to see games in Chicago (Cubs), Bostom, NYY, Toronto, and LA NL.

You'll love Toronto, not for the stadium, because it's ugly as sin, but for the city and where it's located. Right in the heart of downtown, next to CN Tower. Truly an international city.
I recommend hitting up 360 restaurant at the top of CN Tower. Incredible views and food

I'm in Vancouver but I'm a Sharks fan (they were the first team I saw live) baseball is always going to be my favorite sport but I do enjoy hockey especially the playoffs.

Us Canadian "baseball first" fans are a rare breed.. hockey is religion here.. like football in Texas

I was at Kauffman a few years ago and it was great. I don't have an MLB team in my state so I really don't have much to compare it too. Nonetheless it was awesome.

Very true, but I play softball, love watching the games (there's nothing like the atmosphere for a good baseball game) watching the Canadians at Nat Bailey is always a good time. Great way to see the Jays up coming prospects like Nate Pearson, and of course I love the show despite it's many problems I'll still play until at least January. I miss the live games though this year.
