What's really unfortunate is that I took that picture at dimensions of: 2048 x 1536 and the site that is hosting it will only allow a max of 512 x 384 (4 times smaller). It looks much better when you stretch it out, especially since it doesn't lose quality.

Excellent picture. I took pictures at all the parks also and PNC was definitely one of my favorites. I like the old time feel combined with the modernity.

Like I said, I've only been to 23 parks, but I've got over 3000 pictures so far. I was going to post more but I didn't for two reasons.

1) I don't want to hijack the thread as I want the thread to remain about your article

2) I'm having a hard time choosing which ones to upload.

What are your top 5 parks? If you'll be writing about this in a future article and you don't want to reveal it now, I can understand.

I'll post mine shortly.

Yeah, I was actually thinking about doing this in my last article. Kind of summing everything up. I'd definitely be interested to see what your thoughts are on the ones that you've been to though.

I can't narrow it down to five, so six will do. This is based on look, feel, fans, location (mostly on look and feel).

My top 6 of the 23 I've seen are (in alphabetical order):

Atlanta
Baltimore
Boston
Chi. Cubs
NY Yankees
Pittsburgh

I've been to 5 of the 8 West Coast parks (from Colorado & Arizona westward), but they just don't match up to the ones on the East Coast.

Bah. East Coast bias. Just kidding. Those are some pretty solid parks on there. It looks like you like the old-school and the retro parks, based on that list. The only one there that really stands out is Atlanta, but I agree that it's an excellent park in it's own regard.

Why does Atlanta stand out to you? Do you think it shouldn't be top 6? Or is that one that you definitely agree with? Just curious.

I just meant that it stood out because it's not an old-time park nor is it really a retro park. However, I agree that it is high on my list due to the fans and the atmosphere inside the stadium.
