OK, we've had best/worst states, and best/worst cities. But now, for you baseball fans, what would you say are your favorite major league baseball stadiums and why? Least favorite? Which ones would you like to see? Why?

Personally, I'm a huge baseball fan but have only been to three major league stadiums.

Shea Stadium - it's a dump, and it's being torn down after this season, but I will miss it (mostly because I have so many memories there).

Yankee Stadium - history, history, history. Although were it not for that I would have to say that it isn't a very desireable place to see a game.

Turner Field - To my surprise this is a great stadium and excellent place to watch a game.

Stadiums I would love see:

Fenway Park
Camden Yards
Wrigley Field
PNC Park
Dodger Stadium

Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, NE. It may be torn down soon, and a new one built in downtown, so enjoy it while it's there!

Kauffman Stadium in KC is my favorite, partly because I'm a Royals fan, and mostly because it is a terrific stadium. There's not a bad seat in the house. No matter where you sit, you can see every part of the field, and the big scoreboard. It's a beautiful, contemporary styled park, with an impressive water fountain display beyond the outfield wall. Can't wait 'till April.

One of the other two parks I've been to is the old Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Lot's of history, but otherwise a piece of crap. It was one of those multi-purpose, "donut" shaped places that were popular in the '60's. There were several places in the upper deck where you could not see large chunks of the playing field. I think they improved it a little when they converted it to a baseball-only stadium, and put a giant scoreboard in the outfield upper deck. Haven't been to the new ball park, but I hear it's a big improvement, if not a little bland.

The Ballpark in Arlington is the other one I've been to. I wasn't impressed with it, especially considering it's fairly new. I paid a good deal of money to get in, and had a difficult time seeing any kind of scoreboard, and had no view of the jumbo-tron at all. The view of the field wasn't that great, either. They were trying way too hard to be nostalgic on that one.

This season I will be going to the new Washington Nationals stadium, Camden Yards, and hopefully PNC Park. Interesting what you said about the old Busch Stadium in St. Louis. It's basically the way I feel about Shea, lot of history, big horseshoe shaped piece of crap.

Dolphin Stadium- what a dump, seats are uncomortable, food sucks.

Turner Field- one of the best baseball stadiums, GREAT food, lots more to see and do than in Dolphins Stadium.

I've been to new Busch a few times. It's a nice stadium.

I haven't been to any others. I'd like to go to Fenway and Wrigley someday.

Out of the newer ones, Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati... It is new and has most of the things the modern stadiums have but it just doesn't look that spectacular and just seems kinda bland looking.
