Over the past few years, I have been fortunate to travel to many U.S. cities, usually paid for by television productions.  And what better to do in a new city than check out their ballpark.  My goal is to visit all 30 parks, and with a little luck, I’ll reach that goal in the next few years.  Until then, take a look a my architectural, food, and general experience reviews and thoughts on each ballpark on the list.  Click on “Go to Archive” for the complete list.

Ballparks are listed in reverse chronological order from when I first visited the park (i.e. - most recent visits are at the top of the page).



Upon arrival at a new park, I try to follow this routine which I have developed over the years:  After a few pictures outside the park, I enter and immediately find the nearest place to by the most local beer I can find.  I then walk around the entire field on the bottom or main level to get a feel for the park.  Then it’s to the seats, wherever they may be - sometimes I’m cheap, sometimes I get the good stuff.  I mix it up.  I’ve been trying to snap a pictures of the first pitch, but this just doesn’t always happen.  After a few innings and depending on game time, I usually try the hot dog or other local twist on ballpark food (ie Cheesesteak in Philly).  When it’s all done, I head to a souvenir stand to purchase a pin (I decided against hats after I realized how much they cost and how little I would probably wear them).  And of course, I keep my ticket in a safe place


Man is this tough.  So many great parks.  I couldn’t decide on one winner, so here are some highlights by category:

Small Park - PNC Park

Old School - Fenway Park

New School - AT&T Park
