    Out of the MLB parks i've been to, Skydome is the worst.

    The roof was closed, so that might have a lot to do with it though.

    The loudest sound was the hum of the flourescent lights.

    The second time I went there, I couldn't even see right field from the cheapo seat I bought.

    But this stadium is still better than some of the Japanese ballparks I've been to.

    The baseball parks here would make all the cookie cutters people are complainging about sound like heaven. For fear of lawsuits, the net isn't restricted only to the area behind home plate. It covers all foul territory and even parts of the areas between the foul poles. The game is difficult to see clearly with these nets in place.

    In addition, being that Japan doesn't have a lot of land space, they jam pack as many people as they can into those stadiums, so much to the point that if you are in the lower area of the stadium, you'd be lucky if any oxygen were to get to you. I wonder what the players do!

    In Japan TV is actually a lot better than going to the game, unless you're talking about highschool baseball.

      Call me crazy, but I really like Shea. Only been to one game there, but I was staying at the LGA Marriott and walked to the game - sat in the upper bowl on the 1B line... it was nice.

      Compared to Pro Player and Arlington stadium it was VERY nice. I think Pro Player and Three Rivers rank at the bottom as far as stadiums I've actually been to for baseball.

        At least in the postseason, the AL made a rule requiring the Blue Jays to keep their roof closed; I don't know whether the same rule applies to the other retractables. The rules also state that a roof cannot be opened during a game, but can be closed during a game if necessary at the home team's discretion. If the visiting team objects, the umpires are to decide it. Once it's closed it cannot be reopened.

        I'm not sure why the American League decided that the roof had to be closed during the postseason. I'm guessing it was to try to avoid any possibility of a claim that the Blue Jays were able to manipulate the roof closing to gain an unfair advantage.
        I will not assimilate into the Angelos Collective. Resistance is not futile.

          It could have to do with the cold weather in Toronto in October.

                In further response to that statement, witness Cleveland Municipal vs. Jacobs Field. There was nothing at all great about Municipal, even though it was a pre-war stadium.

                          In all seriousness, I have to ask: how many times were you ever at Cleveland Stadium?

                            Oh, I GET IT, you think that because I didn't list the mistake by the lake in my list of MLB parks I've been to a game at that I've never been there! Because the Indians were the only team that played there!

                            We get it, you like old parks and hate every team that ever moved. Seriously though you should hate the Indians because they left League park, and stop defending Cleveland Stadium. It would fit in more with your MO.

                              I think Donald also prefers grass huts and log cabins to modern housing, as well.

                                HELLO i was at cleveland stadium for one game in 1992. and i liked the place. it looked like it was in good shape. i would have liked to have seen a game at LEAGUE PARK but they partially DEMOLISHED the stadium i think in 1950. they did leave a small part of the stadium and the playing field and i was lucky to have seen that in 1992. I have been told that it is still there today and i guess they are going to renovate what is still left there. GRANTED cleveland stadium when there was 20,000 people looked empty. i would have loved to have seen a cleveland browns football game there. DONALD DETROIT MI
