We've all been to a game supporting our team at an away venue where we encounter idiotic fans, unfriendly stadium staff, outrageous parking/food prices. What has been your worst MLB stadium experience?

For me i would say Busch Stadium in St. Louis. My White Sox had a 3 game series back in mid-june with the Cardinals and we decided to road trip down there for all 3 games. The first 2 games of the series were decent with no problems with the fans or anything of that nature...but then came game 3. it started with us just getting out of cars at one of the parking garages about 2 blocks from the stadium. we got out and we were greated by a car flying by us, laying on their horn and yelling out the window "go back to Chicago you f'n *******!" we get to the stadium and while we're sitting down watching BP, a vendor approaches us and says "south side of Chicago, eh? Low-Class of Illinois"..my buddy turns to him and says "its actually more cleaned up then it used to be"..the vendor then whispers "bull*****" under his breath and walks off. Then came the actual game, which we had no problems. But after the game was a different story. White Sox lost 5-3 and we havent even stepped a full foot out the stadium gate and we get the typical phrase 'hey, have a safe trip to Chicago b!tches!'....but then came the parking garage...we're parked on the 3rd floor and supposedly all the 'hardcore' cardinal fans gather up on the top floor and yell at everyone that walks by and what not. So we get near the stairs and we here 'hey a$$holes, up here!'...and down came a nice beer shower on us. All this just because we decided to wear White Sox gear to a Cardinal game. Stay Classy St. Louis.

I went to Baltimore and the only time I had a problem was when the Orioles fans behind us, screamed, hooting and hollering at every single small *** thing the Orioles did right, and the worst part was the small girl screaming at the top of her lungs in her hyper high pitched scream. I heard some snickering when we shot them looks.

Red Sox hit a home run and I turn around and just start SCREAMING in their faces. The parents were pissed and eventually left. Swept them that series too.

But that was seriously the only thing that was wrong. I love the Stadium and 99.9% of the fans were great.

The only MLB stadiums I've been to as a visiting fan are wrigley and the cell. Both were pretty civil experiences.

When the Cubs suck it's a lot more civil. When they're good there's usually one drunk idiot.

It's the same way at miller park for visiting fans though. The majority of fans are nice, but there are drunk *******s everywhere.

I was at Irish Heritage day at Citi Field 2 years ago and the Mets were playing the Phillies. I was sitting in the Pepsi Porch and there was a sea of Philly fans. Being that New York and Philly fans don't get along too well, fights broke out, beers were thrown, etc...

It was not only my first game sitting in the Pepsi Porch, but it was one of the little brothers (5 years old) first games. The really sad thing about it was when security came, it was almost only Mets fans being escorted out.

It couldn't have been worse than this though... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W_k_zwaoXA

No major issues and I have been to about 6 stadiums outside of my hometown. I have worn Tiger gear and never got more than some good natured ribbing.

Worst thing I saw was in Chicago were some guy was drunk and threw up on a chick in front of him. The girlfriends boyfriend turned around and decked him and 3 of his buddies proceeded to whale on this drunk guy until security showed up. Really? Took 4 of you to beat up a 170 lb drunk? Outside of that, I have enjoyed all parks I have been to (Cellular, Turner Field, Jacobs field, PNC, Wrigley, Miller)

"Dodger Stadium." Classic so cal landmark venue with great sightlines and retro feel. Not for everyone but beautiful ballpark, and far superior to Angel Stadium, one of the corniest stadiums in sports.

"Need I say more?" Yes, we'd appreciate it.

"Scum." Real classy. Calling people scum. Shows more about your character than anything else.

Man dies after fight at Angel Stadium on opening day

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A man involved in a fight at Angel Stadium on opening day has died.

Police said Brian Powers, 27, of Buena Park, Calif., died Wednesday at a hospital. No arrests have been made.

Angels spokesman Tim Mead said the fight occurred Monday night shortly after the game between the Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics. Witnesses told police the man was fighting with someone when a third person came from behind and punched the victim in the head. The man fell and hit his head on a concrete step near a stairwell.

Police are unsure what led to the fight and who started it.

Never really had a bad experience, I usually laugh idiocy off. Closest thing would be at Petco back in '07. Giants-Padres wearing my Giants hat while my wife had a jersey on.

Some dude from some anti-Bonds website came up talking trash saying Bonds deserves asterisks for his records. I suggested maybe the Padres deserved an asterisk for their '98 pennant since Ken Caminiti was on the team.

Worst experience I was 12 years old at dodger stadium with a close friend who had season tickets right next to the visitors dugout. The dodgers were playing the blue jays and at the time they had Raul Mondesi, I tried getting his autograph and he was a complete prick about it :pity:

Good thread.

It would easily be the time I almost got in a fight with a fellow drunk Giants fan sitting over me. I guess that's what I get for sitting in the cheap seats. The game was the Giants vs the White Sox at AT and T park. The game was fine but the guy over me was being unbelievably douchy. calling out whitesox fans claiming that they should all "get the **** out of here" and that "this was our house". The whole section was getting annoyed by him and when I started noticing that sunflower seeds where landing on my head I went ballistic and turned around and screamed "wtf are you doing". I wish I would have been more civil but it was one of those moment where you just flip the **** out. Kinda like when somebody slaps you.

We exchanged some words for about a minute and then security came and warned us about getting thrown out. The other Giants fans in the stands told the security that the guy above me was the one causing all of the problems but all they did was warn him. He sat back down still mumbling stuff and started acting out again right when the security left. The idiot was too stupid to control himself and they came back and kicked his *** out of the stadium.

The awesome part was when everybody in that section, WhiteSox and Giants fans applauded together as his *** was escorted of the premises. On his way out he stuck the middle finger at somebody who was sitting above me. The guy was just a total douchebag in every way imaginable. I couldn't even concentrate through half the game because of that moron.

A few years ago, I went to a Blue Jays game, and saw a friend sitting in another section, and the usher kicked me out of that section for saying hello, threatening to eject me from the stadium for doing it.

Yes! Thats right, EVERY section in Rogers Centre has an Usher even up in the 500 level.

My worst experience was at Yankee stadium. But i was asking for it. It was the second inning and the white sox had scored like 12, el duque got hurt and it was the 4 th game of a 4 game sweep. My mom found a broom, stole it and gave it to me. I ran around the upper deck with it... I got hit by beer and a C battery. Seriously who uses C batteries? Best part is I'm a cubs fan could care less about the sox.

Actually, there was this one time back when the Ol' Shea stood in Queens. I was around 8 I think and it was an April night game and it was freezing.

Anyways, my mom got up to use the bathroom but took her gloves off and left them on her seat. The guy sitting behind us then took them and ran to the bathroom. Well, my dad, being the big tough guy he is (not being sarcastic), follows him. From what he says, they exchanged some words and the rest is between the man and my father. So a security guard comes in and, of course, it's a close friend of my father. So my dad explains how the guy stole my mom's gloves and the security guard says as a punishment, he can drive the guy away 1 mile from the stadium, 2 miles, or 3 miles.

So the security guards drove the man three miles and dropped him off so he had to walk all the way back to the parking lot to pick up his car.

Only in Queens.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience ChiTownFan. I've never seen that kind of behavior at the ten or so games I have been to at Busch Stadium (we live 150 miles away so we don't get to go often). Actually, I've been to Busch II and III, Wrigley, Miller, Kauffman, Nationals Park, Great American Ballpark, and AA Hammond Field and I'm not sure I've really seen a lot of yelling and cursing.

I'm not sure I've had a worst experience. Wrigley Field was not that impressive. I get the nostalgia and the ivy and all of that. However, each member of my family had some portion of the field blocked by a beam. And those tickets were cheap at $35 each (I know tickets were very cheap the end of this year, but they were more expensive then, and it's always expensive when the Cardinals are in town). At Wrigley you do seem closer to the field, but the stadium is not that comfortable. The fans were nice enough, but they were out of contention by then. Actually the most annoying person there was a drunk Cardinal fan sitting behind us.

Miller was okay, but it was nearly empty. One strange thing about Kauffman was how few fans there actually had Royals gear on. It was a weekend and it was $1 hotdog and fireworks night. So the stadium was packed, but most fans seemed to be wearing gear from other teams.

I haven't really had any terrible experiences at any park, but I've rarely been there when the other team was in contention. At Nationals Park, Miller Park, and Kauffman Stadium we didn't even see the Cardinals play.

I have never really had a bad experience at any ball park I have been to. The one negative I owuld have is at Coors fields. Staduim is great but the friggin ushers are power crazy. Seriously my friend and I moved back seats since there was more empy rows and lees people around us and the usher actually told us that we had to go back to our actual seats.

MLB stadiums, been to Kauffman, Wrigley, and Yankee Stadium.

Kauffman was a Cardinals/Royals game, which are basically extra home games for the Cardinals (no offense to any Royals fans here, but at least with the game I went to, there were far more Cardinals fans there than Royals).

The Yankee game was just some random game (actually, I believe it was the day A-Rod hit #600, which was pretty cool) when I happened to be on vacation in New Jersey (where my dad's from, like half an hour away from the Bronx). Granted my very visibly pregnant sister was with us, so that may have prevented anyone from giving us a hard time, and it's not like they were playing the Cardinals anyway (and I was the only one wearing Cardinals stuff, just for the lulz), but yeah, no problems there.

I guess Wrigley would be my worst, mostly by default. Not that I had any problems, I'm just not a fan of the stadium at all.

I think the bottom line is that ALL....yes ALL stadiums will have drunken idots, rude fans, and fake tough guys looking for a fight. It's how lucky or unlucky you are to be sitting next to them that will make or break the experience.

When the Tigers sucked huge dick, I had no problems going to Comerica. But the year after 2006, things totally changed. My next two times there was ****ing pitiful, and I was told by a buddy that they were basically accosted this season, too.

But you know what you're getting yourself into at a visiting park. I never had a problem at Wrigley, but I also had good seats, so I wasn't around the drunks.

Trash talk is seriously the worst thing imaginable in sports. I do not understand it whatsoever.

It's not a safe environment? lol you are so reaching. It's a baseball stadium where millions of people go with their families and have a great safe time. I have been to probably 150 Dodger games the past 9 years and have never encountered any problems.

The Dodgers play in a major metropolitan city. The Angels play in the suburbs of Orange County. Perhaps you don't know what real danger is. Regardless, it is a safe place. A handful of incidents in a stadium in Los Angeles that's been there for over 50 years. Big deal. It happens everywhere.

Calling it a dump filled with danger around every corner is beyond ignorant, just like you're acting with condescending, disrespectful comments.

This conversation is over. You're a disgrace. The Lakers should be ashamed to have you as a fan.

You do fit the Angels mold though. "LA is so dirty and scary. Go Angels. We have to post division championships on our wall to feel historically relevant and change our name and uniforms every other year."

this is a little bit of a long story, but pretty funny.

While I was living in San Diego me and this friend of mine Mandy went to beer night, the padres were playing the pirates, so the entire crowd is drunk just like me and my friend, I am just sitting there carrying on a conversation with the people around me, and all is well for 3 innings. I turn around and face the people I was talking to and they realize I am wearing a Raider hat, because me and Mandy grew up in the East Bay, were both raider fans. Well the crowd starts booing, I wave them off and just continue talking to my friend Mandy, people from the section I was in kept yelling stuff at me for another full inning.

One drunk guy (drunk A) behind me keeps trying to take my hat off my head, his girlfriend is trying to get him to stop and I start joking around with him, he eventually stops, I'm still getting verbal abuse from these padres fans and then some other drunk guy (drunk B) yells out "Al Davis sucks my balls and licks my taint" I finally respond and yell out, "no he doesn't your just projecting your homosexual desires on him, which is weird because he looks like dead. Why are you projecting your desires on a corpse? I immediately regret that because he gets up and starts walking over towards me. Mind you I am 6'1 and had recently recovered from a serious illness, and was only 118 lbs, fortunately this guy bumps into Drunk guy A's girl friend and spills her beer, the two start arguing, and shoving. their friends get involved trying to break it up, there are about 10-12 guys roughly on the stair case, and then drunk guy B takes a swing and punches drunk guy A's friend who was holding drunk guy A back, the dude just crumples and rolls down the stairs. All hell breaks loose.

There is a full on brawl on the stairs, which were like the cheap seats, so were on the upper deck at least 100 feet above the ground, and their punching and stomping each other against the rails. This goes on for 10-15 minutes until some old seat attendant comes by and tries to break it up, imagine your grandpa trying to break up a fight between 10 drunks dudes, 5 minutes later these guys are still fighting and like 3 cops roll by and finally break it up,

Well by around the 7th inning I get up to go to the bath room, as I am walking over there, I see all these guys in hand cuffs talking to the cops, and then one of them yells out,"there he is, that's the ******* raider fan." I look over and go, "whats up" and keep walking.

I started a full on brawl between people of the same fan base by just wearing a raider hat.

Lol went to a Houston game before the braves aquired bourn that season and was very happy with how everyone treated us, but had some douche bags behind us. They made fun of every player on our team talked **** and yelled everytime the did something right lol. I believe they started off with the lead because of a chip error and a bad at bat by freeman completely dogged the hell out of both of them. Chipper and freeman both hit HRs me my friends, and the people in front of me stand up and turn around preceding to to yell old man and the baby dropped a bomb in this ***** and several other things to the point that the hecklers got up and left lol. Then some Houston fans took there spot shook our hands and said thank you haha. Got a free drink out of it and everything. Other than that it was amazing and fully reccommend Astros stadium!

Sunlife Stadium in "Miami".

My friends and I were vacationing in south beach, and the night before we all got real drunk, and dropped $800 each on a bottle in Mansion. So the next day we were hungover, and looking for something low key and inexpensive to do for the night. We decided to go to the Marlins game. Boy what a mistake.

First of all the stadium was so far away from South Beach that it ended up being an $80 dollar cab ride both ways. Secondly the stadium was the biggest dump I've ever seen. That place had no business hosting baseball games. Thirdly they played the Cubs, and the game really sucked. Just an awful overall experience.

Houston...

Went down there to see my fave team, the Rangers, play the 'Stros 6-7 years ago with some buds.

First off, their fans were incredibly obnoxious the whole games with the comments about how terrible the Rangers were (we were back then).

Second, I was wearing a Hank Blalock jersey and Blalock hits a grand slam in like the 5th or 6th inning and that's when I get popcorn thrown at me and told to sit down when I'm cheering on my team.

Third, 7th inning stretch, which is "God Bless America" time...I don't remove my cap, since it's "God Bless America" and not the national anthem (really annoys me when people don't know the tradition anyway) and I'm told to remove my cap by the girl behind me. I don't, so her boyfriend flicks my cap off my head and she dumps her soda down the back of my jersey, laughs and says "oops". I get them kicked out of the game.

I've been down there a few times and honestly, they have some of the worst fans you've ever met.

For me i would say Busch Stadium in St. Louis. My White Sox had a 3 game series back in mid-june with the Cardinals and we decided to road trip down there for all 3 games. The first 2 games of the series were decent with no problems with the fans or anything of that nature...but then came game 3. it started with us just getting out of cars at one of the parking garages about 2 blocks from the stadium. we got out and we were greated by a car flying by us, laying on their horn and yelling out the window "go back to Chicago you f'n *******!" we get to the stadium and while we're sitting down watching BP, a vendor approaches us and says "south side of Chicago, eh? Low-Class of Illinois"..my buddy turns to him and says "its actually more cleaned up then it used to be"..the vendor then whispers "bull*****" under his breath and walks off. Then came the actual game, which we had no problems. But after the game was a different story. White Sox lost 5-3 and we havent even stepped a full foot out the stadium gate and we get the typical phrase 'hey, have a safe trip to Chicago b!tches!'....but then came the parking garage...we're parked on the 3rd floor and supposedly all the 'hardcore' cardinal fans gather up on the top floor and yell at everyone that walks by and what not. So we get near the stairs and we here 'hey a$$holes, up here!'...and down came a nice beer shower on us. All this just because we decided to wear White Sox gear to a Cardinal game. Stay Classy St. Louis.

Sorry to hear your experience man...it makes me even more happier that my Giants kicked those little red birds azz in the NLCS this year...it just blows my mind on the level of belligerence that occurs during games...it's beginning to get to the point wear you can't take a kid to a game w/o being expose to a fight or a drunk idiot yapping his trap

Every fanbase has its idiots. I heard somebody talk about a drunk Cub fan at Busch Stadium asking whether St. Louis had any dead pitchers that weekend. I think that fan got kicked out.

Any time you have sports and booze there are going to be idiots.

Worst experience had to be at Camden Yards this postseason. I understand that you're going to get **** being an opposing fan but the majority of their fans took it way too far. Seeing parents promoting their little kids to say derogatory comments towards the Yankees was pretty sickening to see as well.

I went to Baltimore and the only time I had a problem was when the Orioles fans behind us, screamed, hooting and hollering at every single small *** thing the Orioles did right, and the worst part was the small girl screaming at the top of her lungs in her hyper high pitched scream. I heard some snickering when we shot them looks.

Red Sox hit a home run and I turn around and just start SCREAMING in their faces. The parents were pissed and eventually left. Swept them that series too.

But that was seriously the only thing that was wrong. I love the Stadium and 99.9% of the fans were great.

So. You screamed in a little girl's face because she was rooting for her team at home?

actually i remember one time when i was at Candlestick in 94' my dad took me to a day game( against the rockies i think) and i had this Braves hat that i had won in one of those prize machines with the electronic arms. lol i remember standing in line with my pops and some drunk Giants fan gets in my face and starts yelling " ******* THE ********** BRAVES!" LOL. My Dad was soooo pissed almost got in a fist fight with the guy( who yells **** you to a child!? LOL). needless to say i never wore a braves hat a candlestick again haha.

The worst experience I have ever had was at Dodger Stadium. It was back in 04 Cubs Vs. Dodgers game. Mark Prior Vs. Kevin Brown. I will say off the top the game was amazing Sammy hit 2 homeruns and prior was awesome. But during the summer Dodger Stadium is the hottest place on the planet lol. so after sweatin there for the whole game. When we left it took us a little over 2 hours just to get out of the parking lot it sucked. Other than that night games at dodger stadium are awesome and I have never had any problems with their fans.

Honestly I've never had a bad experience. And I've gone to games in Shea, Citi Field and Fenway while they were playing the Yankees.
Actually the most annoying fans I've ever been around were Phillies fans, in Yankee stadium. They were all scumbags, and made me hate the team and the entire city.

Yeah since its real logical to hate a team and an entire city because of a few drunken idiots. Using this logic, you should hate every team and city that has a pro sports team since fans like that exist everywhere.

I am sure 100% of Yankees fans are class acts also... :facepalm:

Usually i won't wear yankees gear tho to opposing teams ballparks because thats just asking for trouble.

Me and my wife to Busch Stadium back in 2005 to see the Yankees. It was my wife's first Yankee game. Yankees won 4-0, Randy Johnson threw a complete game shutout. It was great. Now the bad. In the 4th inning 3 douche Cardinal fans behind us start with the heckling. Its expected. Then out of nowhere my wife gets doused with beer. I proceed to kick their *** but my wife insisted to let it go. I sit down, finish my beer and hotdog but hear "**** the Yankees" for the next 4 innings. The game was great but 3 fans ruined it for my wife. When the game ended I get up from my seat and the cowards are already gone. Leaving the stadium and walking to our car wasnt fun either. I will never watch another game in St Louis.

I go to US Cellular every year for the Yankee series and White Sox fans are great. Never had 1 issue with a Sox fan in 6 years. Love going to the 'cell and tailgating. Great fans

One (or a couple) can have a bad experience in any MLB ballpark. The next time you are in St. Louis, you may encounter a great time there. The next time you are in the Cell, you may be seated next to a bunch of idiots.

There are no set rules in America that good people go to specific ballparks and bad people can only go to specific ballparks.

I've never had beer spilled on me on purpose, but a vendor once accidentally poured half a beer on my Dad.

Unfortunately you get idiots anywhere. I think sometimes people expect certain fanbases (like Yankee fans) to be brash so then they decide to start it. Some fanbases are more easily hated (not that you deserved what happened to you). I've never seen that kind of behavior at the ballpark, but then I don't usually go when the other team is a good team or a rival.

Like I said, heckling is expected. I didnt tell everything that we encountered but it was an awful experience. They chose to pour beer on my wife, which is unacceptable. To top it off, everyone around us was laughing at my wife. I live in Cardinal country and most fans I've encountered are obnoxious drunken fools. And before its mentioned, it was unacceptable the way Yankee fans treated Cliff Lee's wife. No wonder he didnt want to sign in New York. I know many people who have had bad experiences at Busch Stadium (old and new). I will never go back.

I'm sure it was because we are Yankee fans. I knew we were in for some heckling but I thought it was classless to throw beer on my wife. Atleast be a man and throw it on me.

June 14, 1987. Mets. Phillies. My father and I were enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the right field stands, when a crucial Hernandez error opens the door to a 5 run Phillies ninth - cost the Mets the game.

Our day was ruined. There was a lot of people, you know, they're waiting by the players' parking lot. Now, we're coming down the ramp, my father was in front of me. Hernandez was coming torwards us. As he passes us, my father turns and he says, "Nice game pretty boy."

Hernandez continued past us up the ramp, then, a second later, something happened that changed us, in a very deep and profound way, from that day forward.

He spit on us. And I screamed, "OH I'M HIT!" Then, my father turned and the spit ricochet off me, and it hit my father.

But as it turns out, it was Roger McDowell who was the actual spitter.

Unfortunately the immutable laws of physics contradict the whole premise of your account. Allow me to reconstruct this, if I may, for SFRush90, as I've heard this story a number of times.

MetsFanatic19, if you'll indulge me. According to your story Keith passes you and starts walking up the ramp, then you say you were struck on the right temple. The spit then proceeds to ricochet off the temple, striking your father between the third and fourth rib. The spit then came off the rib, turned and hit your father in the right wrist, causing him to drop his baseball cap. The spit then splashes off the wrist, pauses -- in mid-air, mind you -- makes a left turn and lands on your father's left thigh.

That is one magic loogie!

The difference here is I didn't NY fans are worse than any other fans. (Note: If we are talking the Eagles.... you have a slight point because a lot of people at those games are *******s haha).

-Couldn't sit in the outfield seats for batting practice, because you can't reach outfield seats if you don't have tix (McCourt changed that around).
-I got yelled at for walking out of the crosswalk right outside the stadium.
-We brought brooms for the Sweep. They took our brooms because they feared for our safety. Yeah, cause im 100% safe that I'm in East LA. We sweeped too.
-The last game, some Dodgers usher took our Crap, and returned it ti Lost & Found. This usher wasn't even stationed where we were sitting. So a random usher took our bobbleheads & backpacks.

We swept the Dodgers, but Dodgers Stadium blew in every way possible!

I had a free ticket to go to US Cellular when I was in Chicago in late July...but I had never been to Chicago (was on a short business trip), and decided to hit the town instead.

I had never been to Angel Stadium until this year. Went to Dodgers/Angels in June, but had to leave in the 2nd inning because my girlfriend came down with a medical issue right before the game started. Spent the afternoon going to urgent care, and then the hospital. Definitely did not have a problem missing the game...but still an "experience" I never want to happen again when I go to any stadium. I cared most about her wellbeing...and she was OK. We went to Disneyland the next day :).

When I lived in San Diego in the late 2000s, I went to a game between the Padres and Giants. Sitting in the cheap seats between fans from both teams was very entertaining. I wore my Dodger hat and heckled both sides. I think Bengie Molina hit a game tying HR off Trevor Hoffman in the 9th. Padre fans were silent...but half the stadium errupted. It's funny how San Diego is split 3 ways between Dodger, Giant, and Padre fans.

You just outlined what "douchnozzles" the Mets fans are, and then write you didn't have a problem at the old Mets stadium.

My experience with them was at the CBP. I was mostly responding to the blanket statement about Philly fans being the worst in sports because its a tiring stereotype. Loudmouth fans will naturally be more prevalent in large market cities where more people seem invested in their team's success, so it bothers me especially when someone from NY throws that assertion out there.

My experience at the Mets stadium was perfectly fine... A little weird that the away team would be causing the ruckus at CBP I realize, but that is my experience.

I would expect some light heckling at the most. If this was 2006-2008, I would say that you should expect more heckling. No offense intended here, but the Phillies/Mets rivalry has declined significantly since the Mets have become a last place team.

I hate basketball and the Chicago Bulls were playing Seattle Supersonics for the NBA championship and I did not care who won or lost . While watching the game and minding my own buisness I had to deal with two drunk Supersonic fans who came to my seats during the game yelling , trash talking and cussing at myself ,two small little girls and the baby in my lap !! None of the fine Mariners fan's helped us out until the Two drunks 3rd lesser drunk buddy told them to chill before security showed up.

Maybe MLB could step in and grant us rights to San Jose? (that is a different subject all together) I have been to 13 major league ballparks, and I have to agree with most of you that every team has fans that can ruin an experience. I focus on the other factors. I have to say that the Trop is the ugliest place to watch a ballgame. I feel sad for them and I watch my home games in Oakland. People often bag on Wrigley and Fenway for being "dumps" but I just loved the history and how unique those parks are. I'd also have to say Dodger stadium is the worst logistically to see a ball game at. Parking, traffic and other factors just make it difficult to get to and from the park.

I was at the worst home loss in Yankee history. 22-0 to the Indians in 2004. Watched til the last out and still have the ticket stub

That's actually a cool story. Much respect.

Seems to be a lot of people with stories of getting beer thrown on them as kids. A couple people, fine. But now it's just no believable anymore.

If I wear Mets shirt/jacket at Citizen's Bank, what would happen, a lot of heckling or just light heckling?

Honestly, even if you weren't being a jackoff, you would still get tons of **** if you were decked out in Mets gear. And for the guy who's claiming I'm making false accusations based on stereotypes...I've lived right out of Philly for 22 years...I've been to COUNTLESS sporting events down by the stadiums and I've seen it all. It's not one isolated incident, trust me.

Oakland, has to be the Coliseum.

That was an excellent story.

I went to Tiger Stadium sometime in the late 90s and that was hands down the worst experience I ever have had. The park was a dump, the location was horrendous, the crowd was boring and the team wasn't very good. Luckily for Detroit, they have a nice little gem in Comerica now.

I didn't love my trip to Dodger Stadium that much either for a variety of reasons (traffic, boring crowd, boring environment...granted, I'm sure it's more fun when the team is good), but it wasn't awful. Still a good time.

That's probably about it. Hard to have a bad experience at a ballpark. I don't even mind being heckled, taunted or whatever, it's usually all in good spirit.

I feel the Dodgers and Giants rival atmosphere at Dodger Stadium has become less hostile since the Barry Bonds left the game.
I remember just how insane games would get in the pavilions/outter reserve/top deck during/post Bonds breaking the season HR record. Those years, wearing Giants gear in those sections nearly guaranteed a beer thrown at you. A good night is only popcorn or some peanuts

Any place with good chicken and sauce is a good place in my book.

Yankee stadium. I went to a White Sox/Yankees game. The White Sox won 13-2 and I had two guys screaming in my hear the whole game. One guy kept chanting White Sox suck, literally every 2 minutes. The other tried to convince me that I am stupid for being a White Sox fan because they don't spend the money. Meanwhile he was wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey.....

I did have one really bad experience at a cubs game. My uncle who is disabled (can only walk with a cane) was holding my sox hat. Some college boys knocked him down in the walkway spit on him and said go back to the south side you r#t*rd. That was pretty bad, but I've been to many cubs games and every other time everything was fine.

Honestly I've never had a bad one. Even as a Red Sox fan sitting at multiple games in Yankee stadium, nothing but the friendly natured ribbing. I have seen 2 yankee fans get abused at fenway. Started friendly enough, but as the 4 local kids finished off the bottle of JD in their jacket they started buying peanuts just to throw at them, it went from funny to mean and the couple ended moving seats. It was rainy and half empty at this point, so they just moved to another section with plenty of seats.

I've only been to the old and new yankee stadium, Shea and Citi, and Camden Yards and they were all fun and i had no problems....Mostly because the yanks are the home team in all 3 venues

It would be a mixture of both. I have been to every Giants-Phillies game at Citizens for the past 3 years decked out in full Giants gear and while I have never been harassed to badly you will catch some ****. Once people get drunk they will start cussing at you and stuff but nothing too bad.
