The only current stadium I have ever been too is Camden Yards in Baltimore. Didn't go to a game as the season had just ended but got to take a tour. Nice place, the location near the Harbor is nice.

Went to a game at Shea in June of 2001 w/ a relative who briefly was living on Long Island and won tickets to a game through his work. The stadium was pretty dumpy to say the least but we actually got nice seats.

Have been by but never stepped foot in:
The new and old Busch Stadiums (STL)
Turner Field(ATL)
Cellular Field(WhiteSox).

Would love to go to:
Skydome(TOR)
Fenway Park- this one I really want to visit
Arlington Ballpark(or whatever it's called now) might get the oppurtunity too soon enough
Wrigley Field
Tropicana Field(TB)

there are probably others I would like to check out but this is all I got right now.

Major League ballparks/stadiums I've been to (as of 5/3/09):

*Veterans Stadium, Philadelphia (40-45 times)
*Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore (31 times)
*Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia (21 times)
*Nationals Park, Washington (19 times)
*RFK Stadium, Washington (8 times)
*Chase Field, Arizona/Phoenix (8 times)
*Three Rivers Stadium, Pittsburgh (6 times)
*Yankee Stadium II, i.e. 1973-2008 version, New York (6 times)
*Shea Stadium, New York (5 times)
*PNC Park, Pittsburgh (3 times)
*Petco Park, San Diego (2 times)
*Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles (1 time)
*Jacobs Field, Cleveland (1 time)

The above list doesn't include games that were rained out after I already was at the ballpark/stadium.

As for ballparks/stadiums I'd like to get to at some point, the simple answer is "all of them". The more detailed answer is I plan to attend games at both the new Yankee Stadium (i.e. Yankee Stadium III) and Citi Field/TARP Field later this year (already have tickets for the Yankees game). I'm also planning a trip for early July 2009 to Chicago and Milwaukee where I'd attend games at new Comiskey Park, Wrigley Field, and Miller Park (in addition to checking out Chicago for a few days and Milwaukee for one day). Additionally, because I've seen games at both Dodger Stadium and Petco Park but not Angels Stadium, I sort of have a nagging desire to see a game at Angels Stadium to complete the trifecta of seeing the closely-located Dodgers, Angels, and Padres in their home parks. Finally, I have some greater than baseline interest in attending games at Rogers Centre in Toronto and Fenway Park in Boston because they are relatively close to where I live/have lived (I know, a strange reason).

Generally speaking, my highest preference is to hit the locations where teams are in the same metro area or at least within 100-150 miles of one another, mainly because it is easier to hit multiple teams on one trip. Besides most of the teams mentioned above, the two Bay Area teams (Giants and A's) also fit the criteria.

You people sure get around...

I've only been to Kauffman Stadium in KC (10 minutes from my house), the old Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and The Ballpark in Arlington.
KC's my favorite, not just because the Royal's are my team, but Kauffman is a much better ballpark in my opinion than the other two. Haven't been to the Cardinal's new one yet.
