Wrigley Field

Home to the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field in the heart of Chicago is one of baseball’s most historic ballparks. Cubs great Ernie Banks nicknamed Wrigley "The Friendly Confines," which aptly describes the atmosphere that greets fans in a stadium with a seating capacity of 41,159.

Stadium vs. Stadium

Fenway Park
Fenway Park isn’t known as one of America's most beloved ballparks for nothing. As seen in this picture, the famous "Green Monster" has lined the left field wall of Fenway Park since the stadium’s opening in 1912. Home to the Boston Red Sox, Fenway is one of the few classic ballparks left today, and is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium still in use.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Head to Baltimore to see one of the most beautiful retro ballparks in all of baseball: Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Opened in 1992, the ballpark was built in a traditional, family-friendly style, similar to the Brooklyn Dodgers’ legendary stadium Ebbets Field. Home to the Baltimore Orioles, the stadium is also known as "The House that Cal Built" -- it was here that Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrig’s consecutive-games-played streak.

PNC Park

The Pittsburgh Pirates team may not have the best record in baseball, but they definitely have one of the best stadiums. Since opening in 2000, PNC Park has become known as a rare gem among Major League Baseball stadiums, with beautiful views of the dramatic Pittsburgh skyline along the Allegheny River.

Citi Field

The New York Mets abandoned Shea Stadium and moved into their new Citi Field digs at the beginning of the 2009 season.

Coors Field

Located in Denver's popular lower downtown (LoDo) district, Coors Field boasts vistas of the Rocky Mountains.

AT&T Park

There isn't a bad seat in San Francisco's AT&T Park, which sits beside San Francisco Bay.

Safeco Field

Seattle's Safeco Field offers views of Puget Sound and the Space Needle, and even rocks a 3-paneled retractable roof.

Citizens Bank Park

The Philadelphia Phillies moved to the fancy Citizens Bank Park in 2004.
