I've saved money for quite some time now and next summer I plan on going to every MLB stadium and enjoying a game. As of now I have only been to old Tiger Stadium, Comerica, Progressive/Jacobs Field, Great American Ballpark, and Turner Field.

There is a poster here called LuckyGehrig who went to all of them in one hit. He wrote about it and it's in the article archives from 2005 I think.
I've been inside 1 MLB park (Oakland Coliseum). I have been past/outside another two: AT&T Park in San Fran and whatever the Angels park is called. We were going to Petco, but we changed our minds (and I was sick as a dog anyway ).

I've taken in a game at Dodger Stadium at least 15 times a year up until Frank McCourt bought the team in 2004. Up until last postseason, I didn't buy a ticket at Dodger Stadium and just got into games through one of my friends whose company has a suite there.
I've been to a handful of games a year at Angel Stadium and Petco Park. I've made a number of trips to AT&T Park as well (and old Candlestick), which includes the 2007 All-Star Game. I also made a few treks across the Bay, but I guess that doesn't count because it was a few Raiders game I attended (I had some crazy Raider fans for friends in high school), not an A's game.
Out of state, I've been to Wrigley and the US Cellular many moons ago when it was known as New Comiskey and was relatively new ('91-92). When I spent a Summer vacation in Philadelphia as a teen, my friend's father took us to Veterans Stadium once (bleh). I did a tour of Yankee Stadium a long time ago in the one trip I had been to New York, but didn't see a game there.
I haven't been to that many... Growing up I went to the Kingdome a bunch of times, and I've been to Safeco a bunch of times as well. Since I moved to Phoenix roughly six years ago I've been to Chase Field a handful of times as well. Also I've been to the Old Yankee Stadium, which was pretty cool.
I may get to go to Baltimore and/or San Francisco for work this summer and would try to hit Camden and/or AT&T if it works out. And we've also been talking about cruising over to San Diego at some point, in which case I'd try to hit Petco.
My wife and I want to cruise the USA in an RV someday when I retire, hitting up all the stadiums along the way. But that's a long way off.
I'm in Western NY, so there isn't an MLB stadium any closer than 4 hours away. I get to see a lot of AAA games though! In fact I have tickets to see Dice-K on Tuesday night. If Aroldis stays in AAA through May I could see him as well. The week after Aroldis could be Strasburg if he gets the AAA call by then.
Veteran's Stadium Three Rivers Stadium PNC Park Fenway
