  • In which DEFUNCT stadium have you seen a game?

    Be forewarned that this will vaguely reveal your age. My crusty list:


    Tiger Stadium
    Riverfront Stadium
    Jack Murphy Stadium
    Metropolitan Stadium
    Fulton County Stadium
    Candlestick Park
    Comiskey Park
    Busch Stadium (donut)



    If you feel up to eulogizing the little place, don't forget that there are kids on site, and you will have to adjust the spelling of you're pronouns because their not two bright these days.

    Memorial Stadium. (And if you count the Minors and Spring Training, Wolfson Park in Jacksonville and Municipal Stadium in West Palm Beach).


    Irregardless of it's average appearance, Memorial Stadium was for all intensive purposes a great place to watch a game. It had quite a affect on me as a kid.

      I'll irregard the intensive purposes, and collect your memories of Memorial Stadium. When were you there? I was there in August '85 and September '87and never actually saw a game. I have pictures of myself outside the stadium, but never actually saw a game in the place. The O's weren't in town at the time. Coulda, shoulda.

          Jarry Park
          Olympic Stadium
          Memorial Stadium
          Astrodome

          Been in Exhibition Stadium for football only.

          All of the stadiums I've seen baseball in, w/ exception of Skydome/Rogers Centre (which I will never go to again for baseball), are defunct ... like everything else about mlb to me... defunct.

              Really I caught Memorial Stadium at the end of its baseball service. I only started following the O's in their 1989 worst-to-second place "Why Not?" year and the place closed for baseball in 1991. I figure I went to about a dozen or so games there. Great place though. Smack dab in the middle of the neighborhood, miles from any expressway, so to get there you had to actually drive through the city neighborhoods. In a sense it made you really experience Baltimore just getting there.

                Just Tiger Stadium and Riverfront.

                But if you want to talk about vaguely revealing ages, I lived in San Diego when they were building a football stadium down the hill from us, and it was called Charger Stadium. Later people took to calling it "the Murph."

                At the time, nobody saw baseball coming to SD.

                        Busch Stadium (ALMOST got Dusty Baker's sig)
                        Fulton County Stadium (caught a ball barehanded)
                        Municipal Stadium (TOO MANY good memories to count)
                        Riverfront Stadium (TV game, LONG rain delay, Foster homered below us)
                        Three River Stadium (rain again)

                          Memorial Stadium - countless times from 1970 through 1991
                          Exhibition Stadium - 1983 - the night Dave Winfield killed the seagull
                          The Vet - 1987 and 1997
                          Riverfront - 1991 (saw baseball and football since it was pre-season for the Bengals) and 2004
                          Busch Stadium - 2004

                          I would have added Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, Tiger Stadium and County Stadium if there hadn't been the strike in 1981. We had a triptik from AAA and everything.

                            Mets at the Polo Grounds.

                            Yankees at Yankee Stadium. (Oh, wait... it's not gone yet.)

                              Riverfront Stadium

                              Almost Three Rivers-I was passing through, thought about it, but had an early start the next morning and passed. A regret, indeed.

                              Almost Old Comiskey - We weren't excited about the pitching matchup and were more concerned with the already planned game at County as well as our visit to Six Flags. Yes, I kick myself for that.
