Finally another update!

USC played at UDub this season, so naturally I had to visit a city I had not been to since I was a kid (Seattle). Long story short: it was a fantastic college atmosphere. Very friendly fans, with only one drunk douchebag behind us who was suspiciously quiet at the end of the game when I waved goodbye....;)

That's a great view, and it was a great game!

Yes the park is pretty new, (Rangers) however with the brutal summers we have it should have been built with a roof in first place. 105 to 110 in the summer with field temps higher. It will make a for a better fan experience and I imagine would bring in other players such as pitchers who don't want to pitch for the Rangers in the brutal heat. The old stadium is staying put, it will be used as venue for entertainment and such.

The Braves' stadium wasn't originally built for baseball. It was originally the Olympic stadium for the 1996 Olympics

^However, they designed it with the conversion to Baseball already planned for.

It's been awhile since I've updated this, but I did get a few more stadium credits this year...including the world famous Fenway park. Did the tour before the game as well. They happened to be playing the Cubs, so the vibe inside was great. The view from the outfield bleachers wasn't that great, but the stadium itself was very cool.

I just read through the whole tread, lots of awesome pictures in there! For me it's pretty much only soccer I follow, but I'm a bit of a stadium enthusiast as well and I enjoy seeing pictures from all sorts of stadiums and arenas. Thanks for sharing! :)

Besides being the home to the Red Sox, Fenway park looks like a great classic park! ;)

I've been to quite a few MLB stadiums and Fenway is really in a league all it's own. Wrigley was great, old Yankee Stadium was great, the modern parks are great but Fenway is the coolest stadium I've ever seen.
