That's nothing. I have a friend who has been to all of them. Some of those parks, like the ones in Chicago, I haven't been to since I was not even a teenager. I don't travel like I used to. If I can go to one new park this season.......just one that I've never been to, I'll be happy. Might take a daytrip to Philly or D.C.
wow dude...I wish I had a list like that for NFL stadiums...

although one of the things that seperates MLB from other sports is the fact that all the feilds are different...that is really cool

do you own a bunch of these things:

Stanford basketball game tonight and how ever longer they stay alive in their tournament.

Giants opening day, and a lot more giant games.

I have a Fenway Park wooden figurine, It's in a glass case and has a wooden base. Handmade (I don't know how else to describe it). It probably cost the person who got it for me about $75-100. Looks just like one of the pics you posted.

and I do have a bunch of mini figurines that I got as park of a baseball book I got a few years ago.

I am indeed a baseball stadium groupie. That is my idea of the perfect vacation. Just give me a cheap hotel nearby, a bar where I can chill before/afterwards, and a ballpark, and I'm good to go. I don't even need any company.

We might have the same hook up because I get them through my parents, one gets a huge discount through there company and the tickets are usually in the same section.

My friend's dad works in NJ as an eye doctor and he gets tickets every now and then. The odds of the Nets making the playoffs are pretty slim anyway with Harris out and the Knicks and Bobcats playing decent.

That's pretty cool. I had a history teacher in high school that had been to 24 MLB parks. That was my freshman year so he's probably finished the list now.

And my mom got married last May and the pastor was some olddd dude that had a chair from all these old baseball parks. That was his thing, collecting chairs. I thought it was awesome though.

All Texas A&M home games and I will probably go to the one vs. Arkansas that will be played at the new Cowboys Stadium. Hopefully tickets will be cheap since they have to have student seating.

Of course, I could go see the Yankees up there because it would be a good atmosphere and I would then be rooting really hard for the Tigers.

Comerica is fun, affordable, and in the best part of town, although I do miss Tiger Stadium and all my childhood memories there like the '87 Pennant.
