Re: Best MLB Stadiums
We took a x-country trip by car last summer and caught games at Miller Park, Safeco, Coors and Kaufmann. Get to Nats Park and Camden pretty regularly since local. GABP at least twice a year (so far once in 2013 for the Nats series) Handful of other parks in the past few years.
Find myself largely agreeing with the OP. We loved the atmosphere and vibe at Miller most on the trip. Something about the scene there is what baseball should be everywhere but isn't really most anywhere. Could have better food but that's true for all parks. AT&T is beautiful. Nats Park is new and serviceable with one good food venue but nothing distinctive. Cumberland is right of course about the metro access--big deal. Surrounding area will be developed over the next few years which will make the experience so much better. Safeco is a depressing place for baseball but that's largely because the team is owned by a video game maker that doesn't get or want to get the game. Really like GABP but that may be due to the obvious bias and due to the fact that I think we had the best tour guide to interpret the place for us before we saw our first game there. The "toothbrush" lights and great 8 mural are two of my favorite features.
Fenway and Wrigley are special category with different criteria in my book. All fans of the game should see games at both but neither wins any points for comfort. Then again, have seen a bunch of games at Fenway but never in the Monstah seats. Next time that for sure.
