    That depends. How many do you consider "enough?"

    I think I've been to a dozen or so.

    Word.

    I was not expecting much when I went because of when it was built, but it surprised the hell out of me.

    So "your list" is comprised from what you see on TV?

    I'm surprised at the Kaufman love. I have no issues with it but it doesn't really have a skyline at all and isn't as connected to its city as some of the other parks. Its not a bad park but it wouldn't be at the top of my lists.

    Tropicana is definitely my least favorite.

    I've heard no stadium comes close to being as bad as Tropicana

    If I had to pick a favorite it would be PNC Park.

    I like Busch but I almost feel like it has too much going on.

    The only problem with #3 is that it's in Baltimore. Then again, if you really miss "The Wire" just walk about 8 blocks outside of the inner Harbor and you can experience it first hand

    Not much difference aesthetically between these two parks... I know you're a Braves fan, but let's be real here...

    Yeah because she really puts on a show with those huge bellyflops off the right field wall (free Willy style)and floating around on her oversize novelty donut, Oh and the children just love jumping off her stomach and into the water

    The Trop in St Pete is without question the worst professional sports arena in the country....by a mile.

    Totally agree. I've been to 18 and it's the best one.

    Yeah, no way the Braves' park is #4, but I'll cut Chewy some slack because back on FanNation, he was about as much of an over-the-top homer as I've seen on the internets, and he's toned that down quite a bit.

    Rogers Centre should be fired into the core of Mars.

    After the top 3 on OP's list, and throwing Wrigley and Fenway in there I guess for nostalgia purposes and/or wanting to be around some of the most annoying humans on the planet, the remainder are just a jumble of the same blueprints produced by Populous re-jigged and re-cladded as per ownership whims.

    I literally don't see the similarities.
