Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park BEFORE the "renovations". I saw 1 game and Yankee Stadium with Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and Tom Tresh and was sure I would see a home run and wasn't disappointed. I used to watch games at Fenway (walking distance from my apt) for $5. Now that buys you a water. I remember one game where I sat in the condor section and it started to rain and rain and rain. They didn't call the game even though there was a deluge. I was already soaked to the skin and it was warm out so I moved down to the box seats behind the first base dugout and yelled at the players as they came to bat. Most fun I ever had at a game.

Honorable mentions - Dodger, Wrigley, Chase
Ugliest/Worst - Kingdome & Olympic, hands down
Overrated - Fenway
In addition to all of the current MLB stadiums, the old/previous MLB stadiums I’ve been to (seeing MLB games played by the home team when that was their home stadium) are:

* - Exhibition Stadium in Toronto
* - The Stick’ - Candlestick Park in San Francisco
* - ‘The Ballpark at Arlington’(+ several other names - same park - previous home of the Rangers)
* - The Metrodome in Minneapolis
* - Busch Memorial Stadium in St. Louis (home of the Cardinals from 1966 to 2005)
* - RFK Stadium in D.C.
* - Old/the original Yankee Stadium
* - Shea Stadium in NYC
* - Turner Field in Atlanta
* - Hard Rock/Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami (it’s also had 6 or 7 other names)

I’ve been to the Padres previous stadium, ‘The Murph’ many times, but only for NFL games, not MLB games.

I can see why the roof is important to you…..not wasting a 600 drive….but IMO (and a number of people agreed with me), The Metrodome was the worst stadium in MLB.

Even tough there is a chance of a rainout, Target Field is a much better place to see a game.

I remember bleacher seats for Oakland A’s games in 68 or 69 or in the early 70s were 75 cents each.
