I invite fans of this Web site to share any photos which they have taken of the major league ballparks. There are currently no photos on the pages for the ones listed below, most of which are no longer in existence. I would also be glad to include photos of stadiums that served as "neutral venues," or photos that are of better quality than the current ones...
I always credit the original photographers, and am much obliged to the following people:

(Includes major revisions, minor revisions, pages with additional diagrams, and future stadiums that are under construction. This is only a rough guide; the sequence is subject to change.)
Soon after the 2017 opening of the new home of the Atlanta Braves (SunTrust Park), construction began on the future home of the Texas Rangers, a very brief lapse. The last significant lapse occurred from March 2012 (when Marlins Park was completed), September 2014 (when construction on SunTrust Park began). Before that, there was at least one major league baseball stadium under construction continually from September 1986 until March 2012. Both the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays hope to get public funding for a new stadium, but near-term prospects are bleak.
Andy Moursund, Kensington, MD -- Feb 11, 2020 20:23 PM 1 visit(s). My rating: 7 My first game at Griffith Stadium was against the Tigers in May of 1952, and my last games were in late August of 1961, a doubleheader against the Tigers in which Rocky Colavito hit 3 home runs in the second game, tying a feat previously held by Joe Dimaggio. Out of the nearly 30 stadiums I've been to, it's right below Tiger Stadium, Wrigley Field, and Baltimore's Memorial Stadium in my heart. Run down, but family, if you know what I mean.
In between I went to a 22 to 1 loss to the Yankees, back-to-back walkoff wins over the Yankees in 1960, the 1956 All-Star game with homers by Mays, Musial, Williams and Mantle, a 1953 game with a long Ted Williams home run after he'd just returned from Korea, a 1957 game where Chuck Stobbs beat the Indians to break his personal 16 game losing streak, and opening days from 1955 through 1958, the highlight of which was the 1956 opener where Mantle hit 2 monster home runs over the high CF wall, a spot previously reached only by Ruth and Larry Doby, and subsequently reached only by Williams, also on an opening day in 1960. That home run and both of the Mick's were hit off the same pitcher, Camilo Pascual.
