My List of Ballparks


I decided to sit down and make a comprehensive list of all the professional baseball parks I’ve been to in my lifetime. 80 is my number, if I counted right, I don’t think I missed any. I’m sure to bump that number up a little, this summer. Hopefully, I’ll make it to Tampa and Clearwater soon. I’d also like to stop by a couple old, out of use parks in the area, namely, Tinker Field in Orlando.

Here’s the caveat to reading this. If the ballpark has an asterisk (*) next to it, that means I did not actually go to that park while it was inhabited by a professional team. For example, Engel Stadium in Chattanooga closed in 1999. I didn’t get to Chattanooga until 2001, so I missed going to a game there, but I did drive to it and take a tour. It get’s an *. Any other ballparks that say “former home of” but don’t have an asterisks, I actually went to that stadium  while a pro ball team was there.
