My 5 favorite Major League ballparks:
Boston Red Sox
You can't be seriously into baseball stadiums and not have Fenway at number one. And the Italian sausage is to die for.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Another beauty, with hills all around. You feel like you're in California sitting in that ballpark. The Dodgers suck, though.
Sit in the bleachers and get hammered. Then you'll understand.
The best of the hoodies, in my opinion. With all the open space, it's even cool when the roof is closed. Chase Field? Not so much.
Kansas City Royals
Fountains, fountains, fountains! The place has a small, intimate feel that's lost even in the newer ballparks that try to achieve it. It's as close to a cozy minor league park as you can get in the bigs, which is fitting. You're getting single-A quality baseball on the field.
