      homerun derby

      The worst place to see a homerun derby from has to be comerica park in detroit, that stadium is a dump compared to historic tiger stadium. they should of had it at tiger stadium. Donald

        HR Derby at Tiger stadium

        Actually, MLB did consider having the derby two miles over at the
        former lair of the DETROIT baseball club..But Tiger Stadium, wasn't
        up to snuff..and hasn't been kept up..in the 5 seasons, since the
        Tigers ankled it for Comerica..Contrary to what Donald tells everyone,
        it's not a bad 'new' park..they are still tweaking it, and the recent
        home run derby, went well there..as the ball rocketed outta there,
        putting aside sour grapes that it's not homer friendly..and it is
        certainly not a 'TOLIET' bowl..Comerica, ain't perfect..it'll never
        be Tiger stadium..as Pacific bell park, will never be the polo grounds,
        or candlestick..etc..progress for some, is a bitter pill to swallow..

          the worst park has to be comerica toilet bowl hear in detroit.i am proud to say that i saw my last tiger game at tiger stadium in 1999 the last game there.i have heard from people that have gone to the new toilet bowl in detroit and dont have anything nice to say about the stadium.i have seen it from the outside and a little on tv and the place looks like a minor league stadium . and bad ballpark is the new comiskey park in chicago, another dump.AND as far as CANDLESTICK PARK in sanfrancisco it was a dump also and would never compare to the great historic polo grounds.i have read and also heard from people that seals stadium was a better park than candlestick park was.so in closing if you like going to a dumpy shopping mall stadium for a baseball game then all means go to COMERICA TOILET BOWL PARK a BIG DUMP.

I HAVE SEEN ALL I WANT TO OF THAT DUMPY BALLPARK HERE IN DETROIT ON TV AND I LIVE HEAR IN DETROIT AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO MY OPINION AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IT I DONT CARE donald detroit mi

                    Donald, if you've never been to Comerica, how can you form an opinion? Just curious, as I've been there four times now, and it seems okay to me. I did prefer Tiger Stadium, but the new yard ain't all bad. Maybe you should give it a shot.

                      Just because you're older doesn't mean you're mature. You're acting like a big crybaby. It's funny, you grow up while the whole time your parents are telling you to act your age and here we see a grown man crying over stadiums like a baby. Typing in all caps for the sake of nothing. It also goes to Brooklyn Dodger fans, why hold the grudge and sound like a bunch of whiny babies for the rest of your life? When you die, you'll regret that you held so much hate for something that you didn't even get to try to know because you were being so blind. That's for Donald and all Brooklyn Dodger fans.

                        AGAIN i can expect this from someone your age. i respect the BROOKLYN DODGERS and NEW YORK GIANTS fans for feeling that way after all of those years. AND they have every right to feel the way they do.Someone your age does not have the right to say anything about the BROOKLYN DODGERS and NEW YORK GIANTS FANS. again i say i expect this from someone your age. :grouchy :grouchy

                            If your team was taken away from you after being supported by over a million fans in their last season, you might have a different opinion.
                            Brooklyn Dodger fans got the shaft from MLB and O'Malley. Having the Mets spring up in Queens didn't right the wrong for Brooklyn fans.

                              This has got to be a record. The thread got hijacked on the second reply. Though the second reply does give an opinion about the worst park to have a hom run derby in, that opinion is biased as Donald interjects his dismay regarding Tiger Stadium in any thread he sees fit. Really, Donald, give it a rest.

                              Back to the question. What to you mean by "worst park", crazycard? A band box like CBP or Great American, or a spacious park like RFK?

                              Personally, I like pitching, while at the same time see home runs cheapened and totals of some players jacked up due to the cozy confines in which some play. have it in a park like RFK, Shea, or Kaufman stadium, symetrical with no quirky walls or short porches. These would give a more honest display of power, separating the wheat from the chaff.
