    Wait....
    Where is the ballpark?

    This is the location that the city offered to the White Sox to build their new park and they said no thanks.
    Idiots!

    WOW. That is easily the best photo in this thread - the most beautiful, and also the most depressing. Ugh. WHY are ballparks everywhere being torn down?! Don't people have any sense of history? Today I heard that that old ballpark in Omaha used for the College World Series, one of the oldest ballparks still around that's so steeped in history, is being needlessly torn down for some other "state of the art," probably HOK - no, I'm sorry, "Populous" - facility, probably with a quirky outfield and such fantastic, roofless sightlines that will blow your mind! And the Omaha AAA team isn't even staying there, they're tearing it down and building another stadium. Disgusting.

    Polo Grounds are in the top left, Yankee Stadium bottom right, Macombs Dam Bridge near Yankee Stadium over East River, old subway extension bridge over East River near Polo Grounds



    Yankee Stadium bottom right, New Yankee Stadium just north, Polo Grounds apartments top left



    Shea and unfinished Citi in the foreground, Manhattan in the background



    Anaheim Stadium and it's senic surroundings, including an unfinished interstate beyond the outfield



    Two Yankee Stadiums, the Bronx, and Manhattan near the top



    Overhead view of two Yankee Stadiums



    Riverfront Stadium and the River



    Citizen's Bank Park in the center, Lincoln Financial Field in the bottom left, and the Spectrum in the top left



    The Mississippi River in the front, the Gateway Arch in the center, and old Busch Stadium right behind it



    Miller Park and it's parking lot, downtown Milwaukee at the top, and Lake Michigan even father towards the top

    That's all for now, I'm tired

    I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

    If a picture from the Arch in St. Louis counts as an aerial, here are 3 from my visit in 2009. Great idea . . . odd thing is, I've actually been collecting aerials off the BBF forum for the past couple years. Never occurred to me to consolidate aerials into one thread . . . duh. Great photos everybody!

    The right-field wall isn't "holding back the waters." From that angle, it looks like the field is below sea/bay level, but it's not. It would pretty much be impossible. It's actually a few feet above the water level.
