Yeah, it's so great they are going to tear it down this year!

A lot of the places that are peoples' favorites (like Fenway Park) are places that are "Nice places to visit but you wouldn't want to live (or have a season ticket) there."

At Fenway it costs $20+ to park (and get parked in) and the traffic is brutal.

It is so bad that a gas station next to Fenway sold 2 parking places for $100 each. Someone paid it so they could just get in their car and drive away rather than sit in the car and wait for the people who are blocking them in to show up.

Fot atmosphere though I don't think you can beat Fenway, Wrigley Field and Yankee stadium.

Petco Park is pretty good. San Diego also has the hottest chicks from what I've seen. Hope to go there again. Minute Maid Park isnt bad either. The fans are pretty friendly and its pretty nice overall. Kauffman Stadium (thats the Royals I think, not sure if thats the name) is also nice as is the New Busch Garden.

Havent been to Camden, Fenway or Wrigley but all three sound nice to visit.

I dont know what it is but gorgeous women FLOCK to wrigley. I've been to a couple other stadiums and I have never seen crowds that compare. These girls are obviously just there to get hammered but they come all dressed up and stuff its awesome haha. Everyone calls the fan cam the boob cam.

In Petco they didnt really come dressed up and ****. Usually a tank top and a mini-skirt. Easy access. It was pretty cool.

Ive been to 15 stadiums, i like Camden, Miller, Coors, and Wrigley the best. Never been to fenway, but i would have to say thats in there to. Ive been to probably 10 games at coors in my life, and the best experience ive had was there when i went to the world series there last year.

1. Fenway
2. Camden
3. Wrigley

Fenway is a piece of **** with obscured views and high prices.. while it's got great history, it's not a very good stadium anymore.. (although it's still awesome! :))

Best is Camden.. the Phillies one is nice too.. I forget the name..

edit: don't get me wrong.. I love Fenway for it's old look and history.

I live in San Diego, and PetCo during the summer is awesome, even if the Padres suck donkey scrotum. And, as said before, not a whole lot beats San Diego women this time of year...although none of them know jack about baseball, they just come to tan.

Went to Safeco the year it opened and sat in CF right behind Griffey. That was an amazing experience and a GREAT stadium.

Sat in a skybox at Yankee Stadium on Old Timers day and who was in the box next to me but Don Larsen and Yogi Berra. I hate the Yankees, but Yankee Stadium was beyond incredible. I'm sad that it's going to be gone.

The worst stadium I've ever been to...The Vet. That place was a ****hole. I'm glad to hear CBP is better.

And, for anyone who has been, Dodger Stadium is a pretty magical place. Expensive? Yes. A ***** to park at? Hells yes. A few too many half naked obese men peeing on themselves drunk? Not so much anymore, but back in the day for sure. But, for all of its flaws, the stadium itself with the mountains in the background is pretty incredible. I have to imagine that most people who disagree will do so for peripheral reasons (the perceived gang culture at Dodger Stadium--> a myth by the way, an unjustified hatred for LA as a city, whatever). If you haven't been and you have the chance, check it out. it's a pretty sweet ballpark.

Only been to 6 total, and out of those, AT&T Park in SF rocks! PNC in Pittsburgh looks like it could give frisco a run for it's money.

Also, I see ppl here naming Fenway as a good park but if it's a nightmare to leave the park, well shouldn't that be included in what makes a ball park great?

AT&T in San Francisco has lines of trains waiting for fans right outside the stadium and a freeway a block away. Never a hassle to leave that park, and there's free street parking if you don't mind walking a few blocks.

The two worst in baseball. Dolphins Stadium and Yankee Stadium.

Both just were cold, ugly, bland, however you want to call it.

My favorites, Ballpark of Arlington is just amazing. And Miller Park is great too.

Going with the list:

1. Wrigley
2. Miller Park
3. Dodgers Stadium
4. Petco
5. PNC
6. The former BOB
7. AT&T

Worst Stadium I have ever been to, by far and away: Candlestick. But I got to be there for the final game. In case you were wondering, the Dodgers slaughtered the Giants in that game, it was awesome. A great farewell to the stadium. I was also there for two of the three games for the opening series at AT&T when the Dodgers swept the gnats. How does it feel to have stadiums retired and introduced in such a grand fashion Giants fans? How does it feel...

Also, I don't quite get why anyone would mention Mile High, I have been there a few times... damn it's a ****hole!

Really? Outside of Pro Player, and Network Colosseum, Dodgers Stadium is the ****tiest I've been to. Coors was pretty awesome, especially the mountain views.

PNC and Camden look beautiful. However, I've never been to either.

While I love Fenway to death, I can't put it on this list. I love going there and feeling the history, but to be fair, it's in the same boat as Wrigley. They're just old, old stadium that aren't that "nice" anymore. They're there for historical reasons. With that, I'm sure Cub and Red Sox fans wouldn't change a thing.

AT&T Park is the nicest stadium in the world.

It also won 2008 US Sports facility of the year, which means it's the nicest stadium in all of the us in ANY sport.

thats funny, seeing how it wasn't even considered the best stadium in baseball this year.that award went to a stadium that not a single person has mentioned (aka The Jake or now known as Progressive Field.):clap:

Not only does it have the largest scoreboard in any baseball stadium, there is also basically not a bad seat in the whole stadium. Yea it might not have the history of a wrigley field,fenway park or a yankee stadium, or have a backdrop of a coors field or at&t park, but it is by far one of the cleaniest stadiums and the prices for food and parking around the stadium isnt bad either.Also the bars surrounding the stadium are very nice as well.

another nice ballpark that wasn't named was Great American Ballpark.You can't beat having a ferris wheel right behind your stadium.

My top 5 stadiums are:
1.)The Jake (Progressive Field)
2.)Wrigley Field
3.)Coors Field
4.)At&t Park
5.)CBP

Of all the ones I've been to, I'd have to say Petco followed by AT&T. To be fair, I haven't been to most of the east coast stadiums, but these two are hands down the best on the west coast.
