Which of the NEW stadiums have you been to?
I was at Jacobs Field last night. Simply beautiful ballpark.
Of the new stadiums, I have now been to Camden Yards (Baltimore, my favorite), Minute Maid (Houston), Rangers Ballpark (Arlington) and Citizens Bank (Philly).
What new parks have you been to? I would imagine somebody here has been to Petco; I would love to go there.
BTW, if you want to give your complete list, I have also been to Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium, Jack Murphy, Veterans Stadium, County Stadium in Milwaukee, Dodger Stadium, Anaheim Stadium and Wrigley Field

I've been to Coor's Field and Petco, Both were awesome. I think what made them both really cool was their location in the city. Both allow you to throw back a few before or after a game because they are located right next to great restaurants and bars in downtown.

I've been outside Wrigley Field, U.S. Cellular Field (White Sox), McAfee Coliseum (A's) and Shea Stadium but during the offseason, and I've been to Qualcomm Stadium (old Padres) for college football.

Only been to Angel Stadium... damn. When I have money, that'll definitely be my goal. Every MLB Ballpark... and every NHL Arena as well.

I feel like ranking the ones I've been to, from favorite to least...
1) Dodger Stadium - Classic, oldtime baseball. Can't beat it.
2) AT&T (San Francisco) - Easily the nicest of the new parks, awesome views... too bad the Giants get it
3) Safeco Field (Seattle) - Not the newest ('99), but very similar feel to AT&T. Great baseball atmosphere, clean.
4) Petco Park (San Diego) - Cool place, great atmosphere, it just seems a little off in some indescribable way... ::shrug::
5) Angel Stadium - Feels too much like the mall, too many advertisements.
6) McAfee Coliseum (Oakland) - Granted it is of the older style, but just a tremendous hunk of concrete with some grass in the middle... not a good stadium. The fans are alright, though.

Dodger Stadium, The BOB (Now Chase Field), and Angel Stadium.
I'd love to see a game at AT&T. I understand why everyone loves it because of how modern it looks.
