Wrigley Field
U.S. Cellular Field
Miller Park

Next year's docket:
Coors Field
AT&T Park
Maybe a couple from Petco Park, Oakland Coliseum, Angel Stadium, Dodger Stadium

How do you guys manage to visit so many ballparks? Do you take road trips specifically to attend ballgames or do you catch them when you're visiting family/friends or on some work-related trip? Me and my friends are planning a huge West Coast road trip next summer but it's going to be a bit difficult to check off all the places I want because those friends aren't the biggest baseball fans.

Every summer for the past several years, my dad and I have taken a road trip where we see 3-4 stadiums in 3-4 days. That knocked all of them off pretty quickly. Getting to the point where we had seen all of them really crept up on us. It was the goal (sort of) but it wasn't until we were getting ready for a trip to see the last few that we realized how close we really were.

It's something of a luxury to have three baseball teams in Southern California and it's easy for me to frequent the Big A (Angels Stadium) and Petco. Anaheim is about less than an hour's drive from where I am and on a good day, San Diego can be reached in less than two hours. Going to the Bay Area is no problem too, but better off taking a flight than driving 6 hours (unless you like the scenic 101 route). I have some family in the Bay Area, personally, and I even got to spend All-Star break in San Francisco three years ago. That's five ballparks you can scratch off your list if you want to see an A's game. Phoenix is a good drive away, as well, but again, better off flying there and you can add Chase Field to your list. Personally, I've yet to visit Chase.

Other than that, I'm just like you. Haven't visited a ballpark outside California in a dozen years. I have family in Chicago but haven't visited since '92 (went to Wrigley and "New Comiskey" on the same trip), although I should drop in some time. I've been to the old Vet in Philly in '95 and last time I visited an East Coast stadium was old Yankee Stadium.

PNC Park (x3)
Rogers Centre
Camden Yards
Jacobs/Progressive (last Saturday)
Shea Stadium

Physically touched the outside of Fenway and Old Yankee Stadium.

Going to PNC again in late September. Despite the awful performance of the Pirates lately, the fans and park in Pittsburgh are amazing. A game I went to last summer was standing room only and the atmosphere was electric (at a PIRATES game).

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Ive been to a few on my travels:

Coors Field (where I live)
Angels Park
Bank One Ballpark (for a WBC game)
Wrigley Field
Old Busch Stadium
Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium
Dolphins Stadium (I still call it Joe Robbie)
Veterans Stadium
Olympic Stadium
Fenway Park
Camden Yards

Still haven't been to Turner Field. I have to make this pilgrimage at some point. I'd also like to see the Nats' stadium, as that's where I grew up. I just never go back to visit during baseball season.
