A good baseball facility should not be domed. Agree with jimboston on that.

I've been to only a handful of major league facilities - Veteran's Stadium (I loved it, but objectively it was horrible), Citizen's Bank (great), old Yankees Stadium (great, for history only - the crowd there was as bad as any in Philadelphia) and PNC Park (great). Of those, PNC was the best, followed closely by Citizen's Bank Park (which I've been to at least 100 times).

I would normally agree with you, but the thought of a baseball game being postponed due to SNOW is just wrong on so many levels.

The Big O (Olympic Stadium). Just wear a helmet in case concrete falls on you.

Did I mention that Fenway trumps them all?

I think you're probably biased, but I've never been to Fenway. My brother has been to Fenway and says, for historic purposes, it's up there, but he would still rather see a game at one of the new(er) parks.

I also forgot to mention that I was at Camden Yards (back when it opened) and it was pretty fucking awesome.

The seats in Fenway suck... even the $85 Box Seats.

If you know where to go in Fenway you can get a great view.

The best seats are Standing Room Only, right behind Home Plate.
You are still close to the action, but you aren't crowded into a tiny seat.

Plus the bathroom and beer-vendor are right there behind you.

Even when I have Box Seats I don't sit there... I go back to the Standing Room Only section.

Does anyone know how many people commit suicide after watching the White Sox lose on tv? Per game.

I'm listening to the local broadcast and these two are completely biased as I hadn't seen before for the home team, and are completely depressing when the team is losing. I don't even root for Chicago and was starting to think that life isn't worth living...

You have to feel sorry for White Sox fans. They don't have the depth of experience of loosing as their friendly neighborhood Cubs Fans.

Don't worry, they will learn. They will learn.
