Lists: Baseball Stadiums

Filed under: Personal — Tags: , — llcall @ 11:11 pm

I rather like the way my friend Sara blogs.  I have a tendency to write long posts, which is probably why I end up with 121 (and counting) drafts when I don’t have time to complete such lengthy thoughts.  I like Sara’s long, thoughtful posts but I also enjoy when she posts lists and brief snapshots from her life.  It’s probably creating a more well-rounded personal history than all my angsty, middle-of-the-night musings.  So here’s my first list.  

Watched game(s):

National League

  • Dodger Stadium — Los Angeles Dodgers (too many to count)
  • Wrigley Field — Chicago Cubs (2)
  • Nationals Park — Washington Nationals (2)
  • Veterans Stadium — Philadelphia Phillies (1)
  • Coors Field — Colorado Rockies (1)
  • Jack Murphy Stadium — San Diego Padres (1)

American League

  • Angels Stadium — California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels (too many to count)
  • Fenway Park — Boston Red Sox (4, maybe 5)
  • Camden Yards — Baltimore Orioles (3)
  • Yankee Stadium — New York Yankees (1)
  • US Cellular Field — Chicago White Sox (1)
  • Metrodome — Minnesota Twins (1)

Just toured (meaning my visit to the city was unfortunately in the off-season):

National League

  • PacBell Park — San Francisco Giants
  • Busch Stadium — St. Louis Cardinals
  • PNC Park — Pittsburgh Pirates

And now I can throw away a bazillion ticket stubs.



  1. I’m so impressed! Going to a game at Wrigley Field is on my bucket list. Was Yankee Stadium the most magical? Which stadium had the best hot dog?

    • Well, Dodger dogs are certainly famous. But I have a vague memory of a really fantastic hot dog at Wrigley. I also must admit that I’m a cheapskate, so I don’t sample food at all the stadiums. As for most magical, Fenway Park for sure (but I have to be honest, I’m a Yankee hater — but we can still be friends!)

  2. That last line made me chuckle. 🙂

  3. It warms my heart that I was with you for a bunch of those games….I miss you.

    • I was thinking about you a lot when I wrote this post! You were with me for the Orioles, Phillies, Cubs, Dodgers, Angels (right?) and pictures at the Cards’ stadium. It’s not everyday you meet a good church-goer like yourself who will head straight from Sacrament meeting to Wrigley Field! 🙂

  4. Yay for throwing away cluttery “mementos”! I love digitalizing my memories so I don’t have to carry them around in boxes 🙂
