    Which ballpark is your favorite? Which Busch Stadium did you see, the current one?

    Yes, it was the current Busch Stadium. My favorites are Kauffman Stadium, Target Field, PNC Park & Camden Yards. Probably in that order. Wrigley Field, US Cellular Field & Nationals Park were definitely the worst. All the others were pretty close to each other and definitely solid ballparks.

    Don't remember much about Sick's Stadium, too young (8)
    The Kingdome was special, but really a concrete disaster, but had many good times there.
    Safeco, Very Nice Stadium, Great view of city and sound.
    Oakland, thought we were going to get shot on the walk back to hotel. Shots actually fired near 2am.
    Dodger Stadium was neat. Had to get a 'Dodger Dog'.
    Candlestick, froze my ass off in June.
    AT&T, absolutely beautiful, Great stadium, great view of Bay. Love it.
    Anaheim, another solid stadium.
    Colorado, the first visit to 'a new stadium' very impressed, but maybe because it was 1998.
    AZ, saw the Baseball Classic there, not Diamondbacks. Crowd was awesome.
    Cominsky, What a dump, Kingdome part two. Just lots of concrete.
    Wrigley, duck your head when walking among the girders. Awesome crowd. HOT, HOT day.
    Atlanta, just another old outdated ballpark. New one better? I'm sure it will be awesome.

    Minute Maid, Upcoming this April.

    The first MLB game I ever attended was the very first game played at Turner Field when I was a kid. The last game I've attended was the last game at Turner Field. I'm trying my damndest to get tickets for the opening game at Suntrust, but they're a hard get.

    But Turner Field is the only stadium I've been to unless you count minor league stadiums(AAA Gwinnett Braves and A Rome Braves)

    I'm trying to go to the first game at STP too! Tickets are over $100 and I don't think I've ever paid $100 for a baseball game, and that includes sitting behind home plate, but it should be a fun game so I think it'll be worth it!
