    Actually, funny thing, but the best place to see a baseball game in the NY area is EAB stadium in Islip, Long Island, home of the Atlantic League Long Island Ducks. It has all the modern amenities of a new, modern stadium (luxury boxes, all kinds of interesting things to do, great sight lines, etc., etc.) but in a very cozy atmosphere where every seat is right on top of the field. Somehow, they managed to build a 10,000 seat stadium where no seat is more than 10 yards away from the field (except the upper deck luxury boxes, of course).
    I just went to to check. It is a nice and cozy ball park indeed. It reminds me of the two "baseball stadiums" we have in the Netherlands. They are about the same size, maybe a bit smaller.

      In approximate order of when I first went there:
      Major League
      RFK Stadium (Senators II)
      Memorial Stadium
      Camden Yards
      Tiger Stadium
      Yankee Stadium
      Tropicana Field
      Jacobs Field
      Citizens Bank Park
      Minor League
      Prince George's Stadium (Bowie Baysox)
      Harry Grove Field (Frederick Keys)
      Ripken Stadium (Aberdeen Ironbirds)

      Orioles' short-season A farmhands must expierence extreme culture shock when they move from Ripken Stadium to the other minor league parks in the O's' system. Ripken Stadium is first class all the way. If you're in the area, and can get a ticket (which is not easy) I definitely recommend it.

                  "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. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again."

                    My list above (addendum)

                    In an effort to add to my above list, I have planned out 4 possible trips this summer: California trip, Pac NW trip, Carolina trip or Midwest trip (from St. Louis). I am also considering a weekend trip (or 2) here in Texas (I'm in Houston) to get to see some of the stadiums that I haven't been to yet. Now I just need to find some people to go with so I don't have to incur all the cost myself.

                    Last June I took my father on a 9 day trip from St. Louis to Detroit to Toronto to Rochester to Scranton to Pittsburgh to Fort Wayne to Chicago (Wrigley and Schaumburg in same day) to Davenport (QC Swing) and back to St. Louis for a River City game. Ended up seeing 10 games in 9 days. Also fit in the Baseball HOF and Field of Dreams during the trip. Once in a lifetime thing that I wish I could do every year. Made me feel like a boy again spending all that time with my dad at baseball games. Hopefully we can do it again in the near future.

                        Not much here lol.
                        I have seen 2 games at Camden yards, one against the Blue Jays when the O's had Alomar, Ripken, etc.
                        And the other was against the Mariners, Jay Buhner and Griffey hit a HR so it was worth the money and the o's won lol.

                        This summer I will be going to watch a National's game and if i am lucky i will get to see a game at Yankee Stadium.

                        The only minor league park I have been to his Harbor Park, home of the Norfolk Tides, excellent ballpark, great field, not a bad seat in the house.

                        Also, my high school ballfield (Nansemond River High School in Suffolk, Virginia was voted the best high school field on the east coast, $60,000 lights, $40,000 scoreboard, year round constant attention to grass/infield perfection.
                        Jose Lima and the Baltimore Orioles
                        The reason I watch Major League Baseball.

                                I have been to:

                                Cleveland Municipal Stadium (1972-93)-saw some good baseball and a lot of bad baseball there.
                                Jacobs Field (1994-2002)-good baseabll there, but not always good atmosphere, especially during the so-called sellout streak.
                                Wrigley Field (1979, 1989, 1999)-my favorite ballpark.
                                Jack Murphy Stadium (1984-86)-OK nothing great, there were seats in the outfield where you couldn't see the whole field.
                                Candlestick Park (1985)-Dump.
                                Kingdome (1985)-Dump.
                                Dodger Stadium (1986)-very nice ballpark.
                                The Big A (1986)-my favorite California park. I was there for games 3, 4 & 5 of the 1986 ALCS. The first post-season baseball I ever attended.Three Rivers (1987-1991, 2000)-not a bad park (except for the turf), the closest good baseball to Cleveland in the early 1990s.
                                Milwaukee County Stadium (1989)-better then I expected, it looked like a miniatrue version of Cleveland Municipal.
                                Old Comiskey Park (1989)-It probably looked the same as it had in 1930, was like being in time warp.
                                Riverfront Stadium (1992)-looked the same as Three Rivers.
                                Skydome (1998)-saw Jim Thome hit a HR into the Hard Rock Cafe. This place had me wishing the Jacobs Field fans were more like the Skydome fans.

                                I narrowly missed a trip to Shea, when I was visiting Brooklyn, NY.
                                I regret never having made the trip to Detroit to visit Tiger Stadium. The only I was ever in Detroit, the Tigers were out of town.
