    Fenway
    Old Yankee
    Those are the only ones I can think of that I have been to that I like enough to rank. I go to Balt every year, but dont like that stadium so wont rank it. Hated the 70/80's circle stadiums, so cant rank any of those.

    I wish I had a better memory of Crosley Field, but I was only six years old when it closed. I can remember my dad pointing out star players for me, whether for the Reds or opposing players like Hank Aaron and Willie Mays. But I can't remember anything about the actual stadium, other than some signs, the light towers, etc.

    I would be intersted to know why you rank GABP no. 1? What about it makes it better then the others?

    Homer pick.

    If I was being truthful, it would be in the middle of the pack, but it's a "home away from home" so to speak, and being there with other Reds fans to watch my team makes it a special place.

    However, if I was a visiting fan, I'd probably be more like "whatever."

    Speaking of Kids-Back in the 80s I got to see the "Kid" Griffey Junior play at Ricketts Ballpark in Farmington New Mexico during the Connie Mack World Series for the Midland Redskins from Cincinnati. That was pretty cool.

    From just where I have been

    1. GABP
    2. Nationals Park
    3. Camden Yards
    4. Turner Field
    5. Tropicana Field


    Old Yankees Stadium - Didn't make my list, don't know how to explain it. A shrine in one sense, but crowded concourse and the areas around the stadium weren't too good.

    Re: Name your top 5 baseball venues..

    I've been to:
    Fenway
    PNC Park
    Comerica
    Riverfront
    GABP
    US Cellular
    Wrigley
    Miller Park
    Metrodome
    Coors Field
    Chase Field
    AT&T
    Angels Stadium
    PETCO Park

    My top Five are:
    AT&T
    PNC
    Wrigley
    Miller
    GABP

    AT&T is just an unbelievable setting to watch a game. Just was at PNC for the last weekend of the season, and even with an awful team still a wonderful place to watch baseball. Wrigley is the closest place I have to watch the Reds and I go there a handful of times a year and I always have a great time.

    Least favorite park - PETCO. You feel completely isolated from the rest the playing area when you are up walking around. In my opinion they missed the boat on this one.
