^That one is new as well? Just thought I would add also, Minneapolis's skyline is some real nice eye candy.

I am a huge sports fan, but I also love cities. So when I am at the games I often find myself looking at the skylines more than the games sometimes lol.

i love stadiums and cities so I do like to see a little of everything as well - especially with baseball

i think mpls has a really nice skyline - smaller city for sure, but some interesting aspects to it and it seems to fit

i think the gophers will be ready the season after this one and the twins a year after that if i'm not mistaken - will be nice to get them both out of the marshmallow - especially the twins

this is an interesting topic, great job OP. i like comerica park in detroit, i went to a ball game over there several years ago. remember it like it was yesterday. i couldnt stop looking at the glamorous city skyline, great game aswell, it was against the cleveland indians and the tigers won 5-3. great game. i love just about any downtown stadium, especially at night, where you can see the skylights

Suprise suprise Indians loose again lol. So much for the best lineup in baseball like they said at the first of the season.

Detroit and Cleveland have two very nice ballparks with great views of the skyline. I like Detroit's view better though because you can see more, it is more open to the skyline. Cleveland's is more based on the Tower City Complex, Quicken Loans Arena, and the amazing Key Tower.

there are lots of great ball parks all across america, theres just so many to choose from, i think alot of ball parks are better than most stadiums, theres just a feeling you get when your at a ball game, but im not a fan of watching them on tv.

I love the View from Camden Yards! But i simply HATE the new Hilton built near the stadium that blocks some views with it's HIDEOUS face. Still good view though! I also like Pittsburgh's view

Des Moines' Principal Park is a good minor-league stadium with a killer view.


View of the state capitol beyond center field. Supposedly, some players have been known to be bothered by sunlight reflected off of the dome!


View of downtown down the left field line.
