Yankee Stadium is the nicest stadium, and AT&T Park has the nicest setting.

IMO, the Ballpark at Arlington and Progressive Field should not be on this list. They're nice but generic new parks.

And Fenway isn't very nice, it's just historic.

I like Arlington and I like how Fenway looks.

I'm not a baseball fan but NYC's New Yankee Stadium looks the best, I would have chose NYC's Citi Field because I think it looks better than the New Yankee Stadium.

The new Yankee stadium was a total waste of money and us city tax payer's money (Same with Citipark, waste of money). They could have renovated the old stadium for far cheaper. During these economic times, it's better to put that money towards something more important.

Ok, sorry, had to vent...lol.

Of all the baseball stadiums I've been to, probably Philadelphia.

I'm not sure it is my favorite stadium overall, but I do think Safeco in Seattle is the best stadium with a retractable roof. When it's open, you don't even notice it, and when it's closed you still kind of feel "outside". Plus, nice, large concourses and great food options!

IDK I like the New Yankee Stadium. It has this sort of charm.

It also has more transportation options and a Hard Rock Cafe
