    Ebbets Field, Polo Grounds, Yankee Stadium, Roosevelt Stadium, Shea Stadium, Shibe Park, Memorial Stadium (Baltimore), Fulton County Stadium, Los Angeles Coliseum, Chavez Ravine, Candlestick Park, Pac Bell Park, Oakland Coliseum, Wrigley Field, Sportman's Park, Busch Stadium, Briggs Stadium, Municipal Stadium (Cleveland), Texas Stadium, Kaufman Stadium, Metrodome, Crosley Field, Riverfront Stadium, Astrodome

    The minor league parks are not as memorable or as numerous, but Columbia, S.C. , Columbus, O, and Charleston W VA stand out. Of course that's only the Cs.
    After 1957, it seemed like we would never laugh again. Of course, we did. Its just that we were never young again.

      Great topic, Deb. Thanks for initiating it!

      1. New York: Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium
      2. Baltimore: Memorial Stadium, Oriole Park at Camden Yard
      3. Washington: RFK Stadium
      4. Pittsburgh: Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium
      5. Cleveland: Municipal Stadium
      6. Anaheim: The Big A(?) in the mid 1970's
      7. San Diego: also mid-1970s
      8. Toronto: Exhibition Stadium (I have great memories of this one. Went to Toronto on vacation and caught an Angels/Blue Jays game. When the gentleman seated next to me found that I was from the US and had come to see a game he was apologetic that we couldn't buy beer at the game-this was in the late 1970's-so he kept my companion and me well fortified with rum & coke from a Bacardi bottle his girlfriend has smuggled in hidden in an oversize purse.)

      Minor League parks in Jamestown, NY (NY-Penn League), Alexandria, VA (Carolina League), Bowie, MD (Eastern League), Richmond, VA (International League).

      One of the fringe benefits of serving in the U.S. Coast Guard was that I got to travel a bit.

            "It's fun, that's what it is, it's fun. Baseball is more fun than anything else. You can watch it and just love it and enjoy it. I don't think that there's anything tremendously philosophical about it. I don't think there's anything metaphysical I just think its so much fun to watch." - Robert Creamer

                      Just curious,where did you sit at the LA Coliseum? That place looked like it didn't have many great seats there out of the 92,000 seat capacity.But then again,that place was never intended for baseball.

                        That place was just AWFUL for baseball!

                        WE sat between Home and 3rd, but it was so hard to watch the game, everything seemed so "lopsided".

                            Busch Stadium, St. Louis

                            ...

                            I've never lived anywhere with either a team or a stadium. I had to drive 3 hours just to get to St. Louis for a game. My old hometown (Springfield, Missouri) just got AA Cardinals ball. Too bad that I now I live in Utah. The closest team is the Stingers (AAA Anaheim), but I haven't had the chance to go to one of their games. Hopefully I'll be able to this spring. Last summer I missed a game I sorely wanted to see--Andres Galarraga on our side, Hideo Nomo on the other.

                            If I were any more green I'd have voted for Nader.
