    Surprised that you haven't been to Sacramento Rivercats...I liked it a little better than Fresno Grizzlies. You ever come on down south and want to visit a nice Single A ballpark, go to Lake Elsinore Storm, it is just like a Triple A park.

    Love walking and eating in San Francisco...majority of my vacations in SF....Lots of places to see, shop and eat ......all within walking distance (my workout)...Good Japanese food at the Dojima Ann on 219 O'Farrell St.....Don't have to dress up...and their salmon teriyaki is to die for! Best regards, David

    A big regret of mine is that I seriously thought about flying to Detroit in the last year of Tigers Stadium just to see a game. Couldn't get any friends to go with me though, so I didn't make the trip. I think Gnep is the only one I've seen who saw a game there...
    I can share that regret pain with you! I missed my opportunity to hit Shea Stadium before it closed, and it was only a train ride. On the flip side, I got to see a game at Coors Field because I had a conference in Colorado Springs and was willing to fly into Denver and than drive the two hours rather than fly direct into Colorado Springs. Definitely worth it!!

    Didn't know we could rate them!!!!!

    BEST:
    1 - PNC Park (Pittsburgh) nicest stadium I have been to, bar none.
    2 - Camden Yards (Baltimore) still a great place after all these years
    3 - Coors Field (Colorado) the centerfield backdrop was beautiful

    WORST:
    1 - Fenway Park (Boston) the place may be shrine, but it is a hole. the seats are tiny and most face the wrong way. the breezeways are horribly small. if you sit in the rightfield area, the sun basically blinds you for two innings.....

    2 - old Yankee Stadium (New York) - see above, but they have monument park

    3 - Tropicana Dome (Tampa Bay) - just a soulless existence.
    Building Topps sets from 1969 to the present. Always looking for Puckett cards.

    Bench User Page has my most wanted and trade lists for 2011/12 Topps

    wantlists updated, new player tradelists added.

    I agree completely with your 3 on the worst list. Fenway has the outside atmosphere and the same with old Yankee so they wouldn't be my worst. So my top two worst are tied. Tropicana and what they call A's stadium. Those two are by the worst. I would love here here a debate on that.

    If you are not in the 600 Club at Fenway, it is a brutal experience. But I agree, love being outside of Fenway on game day, it is such a different atmosphere from a place like Citizens Bank, where the stadium is off on its own little island and not part of the city. The Trop - if you are a heckler, it is great, because all 5,671 people in attendance can hear everything you say. Big plus is that the beer lines are very, very short!

    Didn't hit any minor league games this year...no time in the schedule.

    On the positive side, my son got to add 3 new MLB Parks to his list (5 total now) -- Camden Yards/Citizens Bank/Nationals Stadium. And Nationals Stadium was added to my list.

    Not sure where we are going next year - thinking it will either be Fenway or a Detroit/Cincy combo.
