    Greatest Ballparks in History



    I'm currently overlooking the greatest venue in professional sports at the moment... Busch Stadium in St. Louis. I'm curious to see what other people think are the greatest ballparks in the sport of baseball.

    Re: Greatest Ballparks in History

    Kauffman Stadium has dramatically improved.

    Best ballpark I've been in? Tough call. Old Busch is up there. G.A.B. and Coors weren't bad either.

    Re: Greatest Ballparks in History

    1. Old Yankee Stadium
    2. Fenway Park
    3. Wrigley Field

    Places I've been:
    The new K is great!
    The Cell is a decent place minus the neighborhood.
    Wrigley is a great place all around.
    The Dome sucks a giant....nevermind
    Progressive Field is ok.
    Great American Ballpark is really, really cool.
    PNC Park (or whatever the hell it is now) is really cool minus the team sucking.
    Nationals Park is really nice.
    Oriole Park at Camden Yards is really nice.
    New Busch is nice.

    If we are talking old parks, I would have loved to see the Polo Grounds.

    I don't know how Busch stadium could be a greatest ballpark in history... It doesn't even have history yet.

    You can't be serious....the place is only 4 years old.

    You do realize he posted the cardinals stadium and he is a cardinals fan. Coincidence or not? You decide.

    I agree. It's definitely not one of the greatest in history.

    Although...It may even have more history than SOME ballparks we know. New Busch has, after all, seen a World Series Championship. I don't even think Wrigley Field can say that.

    Ohhh and I went to the New K this past weekend for Cards/Royals. It's extremely nice.

    Are you sure the tears aren't from the Sox taking a series from the Dodgers?

    On a serious note, someday I do wanna visit Chavez Ravine with my dad.

    Very clever, I've not heard that before.
