Posting this here as it coincidetally deals with two of the teams of interest to Ballparkguys posters.
Sheehan generally provides more info succinctly than any other source that I follow. -
That is on teams other than Cleveland. smile
Sheehan Link

I would note that I have only attended games in a few big league parks.
Fenway in my youth.
Jacobs Field (Cleveburg) or whatever they call it now, many many times.
Comiskey (White Sox) four times
Camden Yards three times.
PNC (Pitt) twice.
Great American Ball Park (Cincy) twice
Busch (St. Lou) once.
Half a dozen or so minor league teams/games.

So in addition to politeness to fellow posters here, I actually have some direct connection to others' teams.
I wish you all well.


edit: I did not mention Cleveland Municipal Stadium. How quickly they forget.
Was reminded by John L's post below.
I also left off the old Phillies Municipal Stadium. It was pretty empty. I remember huge bags around the outfield fence and spending two innings looking for a substantial Phillies Phanatic to take home to my ill daughter who had missed the trip.

Let's list places we've been for baseball ⚾️ games.

St Louis-Original Sportsman Park (2 🏟 ago)
Pittsburgh-Forbes Field, 3RS, PNC
Baltimore-33rd Street, Camden Yards
Washington-RFK, Nats Park
Cleveland-Memorial Stadium?
Montreal-Jarry Park

I remember nothing about St. Louis, and very little about Forbes and Jarry Park. Jarry had the biggest swimming pool I'd ever seen, but I was really young, elementary school so maybe it wasn't as big as I remember.
I barely remember anything about Cleveland either. It smelled and I was there to see the pitchers.
I loved Balmers old Stadium, it was the funnest one to go to.
PNC, and Camden Yards are great stadiums.

But if I could choose one it's Three Rivers. Saw games there that have lasted in my memory forever.


Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

Griffith and Nats and RFK in DC. Both Balmers. Tiger Stadium in the slum.

Drive-bys. Anaheim. Fenway. St. Louis. Toronto. Montreal. Cleveland Yellow.

Carolina, haven't you been to Nats Park?
It's like a fortress. I've been outside of old Yankee stadium, Dodger stadium, The Vet in Philly, and Anaheim, but not inside.

DB, I heard from someone that Oakland's Stadium was really stinky, is that true?

It is pretty funky. It was the Raiders stadium that just put a baseball field in it for the A's. I went to quite a few games there with DinSF AKA Peter Wenner.

But nothing beats that perfect aroma of piss and beer that permeates Fenway.
I remember it from my youth.
And from my two visits as an adult.
Back when, I also remember that one entire section of the outfield stands was packed solid black with spectators. That's where they gave seats to the nuns in the days that it didn't fill up.

Built in 1912, it was rebuilt in 1934.
That's a lot of suds poured in and poured out.

I'd like to go to Fenway, except it would be filled with Red Sox fans.
Same with Wrigley, except Cub fans are there.
