Ahhh, Wrigley Field. My Cardinal friends say it's run down. I say it's historic. ;-D

This is actually more common than you'd think... I know Jackie Robinson Ballpark down in Florida has a national landmark designation and they are thinking about doing that for the old Durham Bulls park in North Carolina.

Basically it's a way of making rehabilitation costs more reasonable for older stadiums if that's the route they decide to go -- sometimes comes with the creation of some sort of side exhibit/mini-museum type deal explaining why they decided the facility was historic.

I think it should be a landmark, along with wrigley. Do you know how much I would love to see Ebbets field or the Polo Grounds? It may be uncomfortable, but it is something that should be preserved.


Ditto on Ebbets and PG. It would just be cool to have a ballpark in the middle of Manhattan. Of course, it probably would have been bought and renamed Trump's Diamond or something.


Tiger Stadium is still there, but i'm pretty sure it's just becasue the city doesnt want to pay to tear it down.

last i heard they were kicking around ideas to turn it into a muesum that no one will visit, or a Target store

no current major league parks are national landmarks. wrigley was given local landmark or historic site designation which actually kind of pissed of the cubs since they cant make any changes without city approval.

Fenway and Wrigley are the only stadiums that Id consider national landmarks but I would say Yankee Stadium too but aren't they knocking that down in a few years?

I would have to say Minute Maid Park. I love that hill and flag pole in center field. It is sooooo sweet.

What does the cafe think?









Just kidding.
