    Fenway Park would be next with 9 World Series hosted (8 with the Sox, 1 with Braves), followed by Dodger Stadium with 8 World Series.

    After that, Oakland with 6 and Wrigley with 5, Shea with 4. I'm not sure about the exact number of games though.

    Tiger Stadium hosted 6 Series too. It's still in existance.

            interesting thread. it's funny to see it printed out and notice things like dolphins stadium. 13 years in the league and it's over half the tally of wrigley field. look at all the history that was made in the cookie cutters. actually riverfront could be a lot closer to busch in total games, but it was just the nature of the series that were played there. a couple of '4 and outs' and a five gamer. only one full series. o well, there's always hope for great american to be best of the new batch. somebody should coin a phrase for these new parks already. start a thread and get some ideas. i'm off to work.

              everyone knows that the polo grounds is gone. but consider that since the polo grounds has not held a world series since 1954 its still 2nd behind yankee stadium as far as world series games. none of the newer parks come close to the polo grounds.

                I'm surprised that Ebbets Field hosted 38 WS games. I expected more seeing as though the Dodgers have the most pennants in the National League. 18.

                  But half of those (9) pennants have been won in Los Angeles.

                  1959, 63, 65, 66, 74, 77, 78, 81, 88.

                    That is actually a very interesting fact. Shows how good the Giants used to be.

                        Not all of those games were Giants games, 6 games were Yankees games with the Giants as the "visiting" team(see 1921 and 1922 World Series).

                          Actually less than half if you consider that they won pennants before the World Series was created. 9 pennants in Ebbetts Field, 8 in Dodger Stadium, 1 in LA Colliseum, 3 in Washington Park. Total of 21 pennants in all.

                          Still impressive for the team.

                            The Wrigley tally is misleading. The Cubs appeared in four World's Series before they began playing at Wrigley Field. I'll have to look but the Cubs may have played their home games at Comiskey Park in the 1918 World's Series also.

                              The count for Wrigley Field is accurate, they did play 13 World Series games in the park. The number for Comiskey Park is accurate as well, there were 13 World Seriese games played there including the Cubs 1918 World Series home games.
