There is nothing like watching baseball on a nice summer night, in the presence of close company, with an overpriced beer in hand, and the smell of hot dogs permeating in the air. Some of my earliest excursions out of state involved hopping in a car with great friends and driving to baseball cities in the Midwest.
The Midwest has a wealth of incredible stadiums, which is where all but one of these reside. Every stadium varies significantly in architecture and its reflection of the local area. Growing up with a team playing indoors, I feel I was enlightened the first time I witnessed outdoor baseball. I tried my best to put these in order, but truly loved them all. One or two games does not allow a full comprehension of the finer aspects of each stadium, so if you have been to these or others, please add your thoughts.

My goal is to see them all, but a few highest on my list are:
Fenway Park - Boston
