Now, this was really cool, but the author of the entry hit it right on the head when he said the Tiger Stadium photo was sad.
Tiger Stadium, of the half dozen or so stadiums that I have visited, was my least favorite. But, to see it (and all of its history) dilapidated like that... better to just bulldoze the whole thing and be done with it.
Hasn't it been bulldozed already?
...or could it be that this is where the Tigers play now? No way...
Rob, I agree with you about Tiger Stadium. The shot I found most impressive was the shot of Seattle's Seahawks Stadium & Safeco Field. The shot of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays Stadium doesn't do it justice even though it is just a dome. Driving up to the stadium, it looks like a giant white tit to me, but you can't tell that from the straight above arial shot. The roof actually slopes. I know this sounds completely crazy, but the Trop is still the coolest place that I have been to to watch a baseball game. No disrespect to Dodger Stadium or Turner Field. They have prettier fields, but I like the Trop's comfort & air conditioning & unique style.
Interesting perspective on the ballparks and I agree with the sentiments regarding Tiger Stadium. On my only visit there, it felt like I was sitting in an old rat-infested factory and just about every seat had an obstructed view. It didn't feel like a real ballpark and I'll bet it was the same way back in its heyday. It should've been torn down decades ago. Also, looking at Kansas City is proof that baseball and football stadiums can't coexist side by side. Somehow, it doesn't look right and I hope the McCourts never build a football field next to Dodger Stadium.
