Wrigley or Fenway. I'm surprised so many are voting for TF--its atmosphere was nothing special, in my opinion.

I like Wrigley, Fenway, Citi Field, and Yankee Stadium. My problem with Yankee Stadium is it's a little dark and closed in once you exit the seating areas, and I like Citi Field for its openness.

Wrigley and Fenway are historic. I also loved the old Mets/Yankees fields for the same. Shea was a classic, and well loved, especially for me as a Mets fan. It was hard to choose, but I voted for Wrigley.

I know this isn't a question here but the worst I've been to was Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg (Tampa Rays). Terrible. The cool part was the sting rays tank but that was probably the only thing I was remotely interested in just because IMO it's an interesting feature for a ballpark to have and kids like it. And by the time I reached it, it was closed anyway.

Chase Field in Phoenix actually has a party pool in the stands, that's pretty cool.

Progressive Field is the best...Camden Yards a close 2nd...Petco Park 3rd...

Of the old ballparks Fenway is best.

Kauffman in Kansas City because itís my team.
I also love it because the park absolutely forces an actual baseball game to be played rather than just sitting around waiting for the next home run to happen. Much more exciting baseball in my opinion.

I have only been inside Fenway, Yankee Stadium, Rogers Centre, and Camden Yards for games.



Nothing beats Fenway for history and ambiance but it doesn't have the best modern amenities and comfort features. Camden Yards ticks off most all the boxes. New Yankee Stadium lacks the character the old place had (been to both). Rogers is too modern and a bit antiseptic.

As someone to who has watched a game in every MLB city (Went to Turner Field, before SunTrust was built) I can say that my favorite stadium is Oracle Park. The worst is a toss up between Oakland and Tropicana Field.
