I've been to Yankee, Dodger, Citi, Turner, Camden, Coors, Petco, Citizens Bank, AT&T, Nationals, Busch, Chase and Safeco (goal is all 30 one day)...

Petco was the best from those. Would love to see Wrigley soon and am going to see Fenway in 3 months.

Camden was my favorite as a baseball fan (new Yankee stadium was disappointing), but Petco was just too damn impressive to not be the best from that group. Dodgers stadium is my least favorite I've been to (actually old RFK was, but not used anymore).

I've been to Fenway, Yankee, Citi, Citizens Bank, Camden Yards, Turner, Jacobs, PNC, Rogers Centre, AT&T, and Chase Field. And a few that no longer exist, such as old Yankee, Shea, the Vet, Fulton County.

My favorite is Camden Yards. But I also love the atmosphere at Fenway and really liked AT&T too. Wrigley and Petco are at the top of my list of want-to-visit parks, and I know I'll hit Nationals Park in DC one of these days (work trips haven't lined up with homestands lately). I was disappointed with new Yankee Stadium and PNC Park (but I think my expectations were too high there, it is a nice park). Citi Field is very nice, but the high ticket prices and poor team performance have dampened the atmosphere. I miss those $5 AMNY bleacher tix at Shea.

It's kind of hard to chose based on the criteria. Most historic and most modern are opposites in the sense that Target Field is very new and has not had a chance to build up some history.


In any event, here are my overall favorites in no particular order:

Fenway Park
Wrigley Field
Target Field
PNC Park
Safeco Field
Camden Yards

Well of course it's not one size fits all. You can choose one for each criteria point and then an overall favorite on the poll.
