  • 1. Fenway Park
    Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts

    Having grown up 20 minutes away, I'm a little biased here, but I can't think of many other places I'd want to be on a summer or fall day with the Red Sox in the race. Say what you want about Red Sox fans, but believe me, most of us aren't morons who scream "Yankees Suck". We have great appreciation for our team and the game of baseball and it shows when you visit Fenway. Fan favorites: P Jonathan Papelbon and DH David "Big Papi" Ortiz

  • 2. Oriole Park at Camden Yards
    Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland

    I had the privilige of attending a game here when the Orioles were a great team and the place was packed with people and energy. The team has fallen on some hard times, but the stadium is without question a work of art. Fans will love the intimate atmosphere of strolling down Ewtah Street past right field. Players to watch: SS Miguel Tejada and 2B Brian Roberts

  • 3. Wrigley Field
    Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois

    Its ivy-covered fences are a baseball trademark and the passion of the Cubs fans and the cheap bleacher beer make the experience one of high spirits, win or lose. Players to watch: P Carlos Zambrano and 1B Derek Lee

  • 4. Jacobs Field
    Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio

    Jacobs Field can be given a large amount of the credit for revitalizing the Cleveland Indians. For the first few years after the stadium opened, seats were sold out for the entire season. After a couple down years, the Indians are headed back to prominence and the "Jake" is filled to the gills again. Players to watch: OF Grady Sizemore and DH Travis Hafner

  • 5. Petco Park
    Petco Park, San Diego, California

    From what I've been told, Petco is a phenomenal place to watch a game from and is in a beautiful part of San Diego. What's more, the Padres are actually a decent team again. Players to watch: SS Khalil Green and P Trevor Hoffman

  • 6. SBC Park
    AT&T Park, San Francisco, California

    Not sure if this is even the name of the park anymore (it seems like it changes every year), but one thing you can call it is beautiful. It's the only stadium I know of where you can catch a home-run ball while sitting in your kayak in McCovey Cove. And, just to show it's on the cutting edge, each seat is equipped with full internet connection.

  • 7. New Busch Stadium
    http://stlouis.cardinals.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/stl/ballpark/index.jsp

    St. Louis has some of the best fans in all of baseball, and their brand new stadium is a classic. They also have a great team. Players to watch: 3B Scott Rolen and 1B Albert Pujols

  • 8. Coors Field
    Coors Field, Denver, Colorado

    The stadium is beautiful, no question, but it goes to no. 8 because of the way the team has been the last few years and the lack of attendance. Players to watch: 1B Todd Helton and SS Clint Barmes

  • 9. Safeco Field
    Safeco Field, Seattle, Washington

    Safeco is an architechtual wonder, with its dome that does not close all the way and the train that runs through the stadium. Players to watch: OF Ichiro and 1B Richie Sexson

  • 10. Yankee Stadium
    Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York

    Had to include it just because it is such a staple of baseball. In all honesty, the location stinks, but if you're an outsider, uggh, and kills me to say this as a Sox fan, you'll appreciate the fans' enthusiasm. Players to watch: OF Johnny Demon and 3B A-Fraud
