Listing the Major League Baseball Parks I Visited Over the Years


I thought I would list the major league ballparks that I visited over the years.  My first game was on July 15, 1957, in Ebbets Field, the last year that the Dodgers played in Brooklyn.  I obviously attended many games in NYC, but have traveled to visit other ballparks.  The list is in no particular order and includes some names that have changed.  I just hate the corporate names of ballparks, but everyone is out for the almighty buck from naming rights.  Yankee Stadium is listed three times since there were actually three stadiums at River Avenue and 161st Street.

Several of these parks are now defunct.  Off the top of my head, I need to visit Nationals Park, Tropicana Field, Petco Park, Globe Life Field. and Comerica Park.  In 2007 we visited Comerica Park in Detroit on the Jay Buckley Baseball Tour, but the game was rained out.  I am sure that regulars of the Jay Buckley Baseball Tour have larger lists than mine.

1. Ebbets Field

2. Yankee Stadium (1923-73)

3. Yankee Stadium (1976- 2008)

4. Yankee Stadium (current)

5. Shea Stadium

6. Citi Field

7. Polo Grounds

8. Fenway Park

9. Citizens Bank Park

10. RFK Stadium

11. Turner Field

12. Marlins Park

13. PNC Park

14. Great American Ballpark

15. Wrigley Field

16. Guaranteed Rate Field

17. Miller Field

18. Target Field

19. Kaufmann Stadium

20. Busch Stadium (current)

21. Coors Field

22. Chase Field

23. Dodger Stadium

24. Angels Stadium

25. Camden Yards

26. Candlestick Park

27. AT&T Park

28. T-Mobile Park

29. Oakland Coliseum 

30. Progressive Field
