  • Best and Worst: MLB Exteriors

    What does everyone think? What are the best and worst MLB Exteriors? I'll chime in a little later with my own thoughts on the issue.

    Was this topic inspired by the debate in another thread about the first base side of Safeco?

    Best: Miller, Petco, PNC, Target, NYS, Minute Maid

    Worst: Trop, Rogers, Kaufmann, Coliseum
    1997 2003
    Parks I've visited: 30 for 30, plus 5 closed

      Best is almost anything brick and the worst is almost anything without brick. The exceptions is probably dodger, I don't even like the outside of KC sorry to say that!
      The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

            Heh Target isn't even finished and people are already putting on "best" lists.

            I'd like to see the upper works complete a little more before completely agreeing, but that stonework and what they've done so far is beautiful.

            Even if a friend says it reminds him of a shopping mall. :ooo:

              Why is Ragers Centre bad in terms of exterior? It looks pretty good to me. Its not fancy or anything but its certainly modern and nice to look at.

              Tropicana is awful. And McAfee Coliseum or whatever its calling itself now.

                      Unfortunately, it still suffers from the typical ugly, 1970ish, cookie-cutter, ramp-heavy exterior.



                      Take away the green paint and trees and you've got...

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

                          Just wait until they install the wood louvers on the 5th & 7th St. sides. They have potential to be one of my favorite additions to the facade.

                              Can someone please post pictures of the exteriors of the new Kauffman?
                              Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                              If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.
