Destination Ballparks

There’s something special about a baseball park.  The smells, the sounds, the sun, everything.  Which of the major league’s 30 parks would you most want to visit, though?  For me – having already been to a few – it comes down to these five. 

  • AT&T Park in San Francisco: Right on the water, with the brick in the outfield, baked in the moderate San Francisco sunlight, the home of the Giants always looks on TV like a perfect place to watch a baseball game – wether in the park, or floating in the bay on a canoe hoping for one of Barry Bonds’ steroid-aided home runs.
  • Chase Field in Phoenix: Honestly, the Diamondbacks’ home park looks like a terrible place to watch baseball, but if they let me swim in the pool for all nine innings, I’m in.
  • Chavez Ravine: Surviving the parking lot is, apparently, a challenge, but there’s something special about the Dodgers in their Southern California cathedral with the  hills in the background.
  • PNC Park in Pittsburgh: Nestled at the point of three rivers, with the Roberto Clemente Bridge in centerfield, PNC Park may be the majors’ most underrated park.
  • Wrigley Field: 100 years of awful and the Cubs are still relevant.  You know why?  Wrigley, that’s why.  I want to see the ivy and experience what 100 years of tradition feels like – even if it’s the Cubs’ tradition.

That’s my list.  What’s on yours?  Comment below and let us know, and if you want a chance to visit one of these parks, enter our Baseball Flyaway contest!
