I never understand why some places (like Milwaukee) build their stadiums in the middle of no where. it just doesn't have the same feel at all!

^I've got a bunch of Camden Yards... one of my favorite stadiums. I don't have them on this computer but I'll post them later.

Fenway Park doesn't have the best view, but shouldn't be overlooked. It's only got a view of the Back Bay Skyline (which IS home to the city's two tallest, the Hancock and Prudential respectively) area. The Financial District Skyline (the largest portion of the Boston Skyline) can't be seen except for in some obscure portions of the park.

here are some shots of Back Bay Skyline from Fenway:

I'm glad the Cardinals' management decided to build a stadium with a great view of downtown St. Louis - that was one of the things I thought needed fixing with Old Busch (which was still a great stadium, of course ).

Seeing a home run fly in view of the arch at New Busch Stadium is one of the coolest sites in sports

Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati turns its back to Downtown Cincy, but the views of Covington are awesome





Slugger Field in Louisville KY is regarded by many people as one of the best Minor League Parks, although I'd rather watch college baseball for free

Like Fenway, Wrigley Field is not right downtown, but is located in an inner-city neighborhood, with a decidecly urban landscape around the ballpark:

This is a midtown view from Shea Stadium in Queens, NYC. This is just the midtown view--not even downtown or uptown. It's difficult to see the skyline from Yankee stadium due to the location Yankee stadium is from the skyline:
