The Westfalenstadion (aka Signal-Iduna-Park) in Dortmund, Germany. Germany's own football temple. Big grin

some answers here may be biased....after all, fans sitting on the "home side" of yankee stadium never really have a good attitude leaving the place. they are too busy thinking "dang, we got within 3 runs that time! we almost got close to winning!"

Out of those two...Shea Stadium.
Overall, I prefer these two:



Orange Bowl....home of teh Miami Hurricanes

and



AT&T Park, SF
I like the A's, but compared to Big Phone Company Park, its a total dump.

I prefer Shea as it tends to be easier to park and just go to than Yankee Stadium, which a huge pain. Overall both stadiums are decaying ever so slowly. I cannot wait to see Citifield though.


If it were a MLB wide thing I'd go with Petco, although Camden and Jacob's Field would be in there as well. In fact I really couldn't decide there were some great ball parks built in the last 10 or so years all worth a trip to go and see.

Just went to Shea for the subway series. Although I'm a Mets fan, Shea stinks. The line for the men's room was 10 minutes, ladies room had no line.

First off, I'd vote Yankee Stadium purely for the historical value. Shea's value is watching LGA traffic...

MLB wise, Camden Yards is pleasing for it's downtown site, but the seats don't face the mound or home plate if you're seated down the lines, or at least didn't when I saw a game back in Cal Ripken, Jr's chase for Gehrig (I was at game 2126 on the streak). The Jake is really nice, especially in good weather, but my top 2 votes lie in the American League West:

1. Safeco Field, Seattle
2. Ameriquest Field, Arlington

with Minute Maid Park, Houston leading the NL.

I do love Safeco, was there for the All Star game some years ago, totally neat place.

As to Camden althought the seats don't face the mound like new stadiums in CIN and SF and so forth do, it adds to the older charm that is Camden. Although I think a lot of new stadiums cannot fully address this issue as in itself the lines physically can't face the mound all that much.

Neither. They both suck ass.

Uggghh. It's been a dump since the Dolphins left and Flipper's tank was removed from the endzone.

For my choice I will go with the following two.

Florida Field - Home of the 2006 National Champion Florida Gators!


Turner Field and the old Fulton County Stadium (since torn down) in Atlanta

Either way, its not in Gainesville, its in Canesville.

Lol. Only the U can't fill up a moderately sized stadium when a top 10 team rolls around. Gotta love Miami.

I do rather enjoy DKR Texas Memorial Stadium, with our new Jumbotron and all (the largest in the world).

Never been to either Yankee or Shea, though.

Both Shea and Yankee stadium are the pits from a comfort perspective. The concessions and restrooms suck. However, I like them both. Shea offers, in my opinion, a slightly better viewing experience. However, the atmosphere at Yankee Stadium is second to none.

gotta love the U. Got to realize that Miami has a small alumni base, smallish fanbase, and 3/4 of Miami doesn't give a rats ass about Football.

The original name is Florida Field. After the Griffin family donated an assload of money it was renamed Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field. Us old school folks still just call it by the original name.

I saw a game there earlier this year. Nice stadium, but the prize still goes to PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Awesome stadium. Went to the home opener this year (to see my Astros lose  Sad )

I really liked Miller Park in Milwaukee. There are some nice AA & AAA ball parks out there too, the Dell Diamond in Round Rock (outside of Austin) is pretty nice. I heard they have a nice one in Indianapolis too though I've never been. Have yet to see Yankee or Shea though.

I guessed you missed the memo. The naming contract with Ameriquest was terminated and the stadium has been renamed The Rangers Ballpark. As it should be.  Wink
