    Favorite Park other than a Cincy one...............

    You have to have been to the park. For me, retro would be Wrigley. That place is an experience. I still hope to get to Fenway. Modern would probably be KC. I like the fact it's out on it's own, easy to get to, parking was a snap, and the fountains are a nice touch.

    Vintage would have to be Wrigley - only one that's left that I've been to.

    New: Camden Yards and not just the ball park - the surrounding area was nice too

    I agree on both.

    Wrigley is awsome. I went their with my girlfriend a few years ago and she complained because they hand no Jumbotron to watch replays. I told her thats how baseball was ment to be played.

    Wrigley for old school, though Dodger Stadium is also a must see for an older ball park.

    Pac Bell / At&T/ SBC.....whatever they call San Francisco now is my favorite of the new ball parks. PNC is great also, but loses something by being beautiful, but basically empty.

    Went to Philadelphia last summer and was pleasantly surprised with it, despite the fact it sits in a giant parking lot with all the other Philadelphia sports arenas.

    Going to Safeco this summer to see the Reds, so looking forward to checking that out.

    Delhi Park, field #1. Lot of memories and blood on that sand for me.

    Is that a Cincy one? If it is, I've played there a bit. My favorite Cincy one is Blue Ash Crosley.

    Durham Athletic Park, the place where Bull Durham was filmed. They don't use it anymore, but I got to go there a few times before they built their new facility. It was a pit, but totally priceless.

    I've only been to "Cinergy" GABP, and Jacobs field in Cleveland as far as Major League parks, so I'll have to go with Jacob's Field.

    It's one of my life goals to make it out to a game in each park though.

    Minor leagues -- New: Toledo Old: Grayson Stadium in Savannah, GA, where Borat made one of his first public appearances. http://www.webgeordie.co.uk/borat/usa_baseball.htm (A cameo appearance by our own C. Trent Rosecrans on this site.)

    Tiger Stadium had the old school charm but still had the comfort that alot of old stadiums lack,especially when compared to old Commiskey. I went to old Commiskey its final season in 1990 and was never so cramped and miserable in all my life.
