I am a huge sports fan. My favorites are football, basketball, and baseball. A few years ago, I made a goal to visit all of the MLB stadiums. Below is how I came up with that goal and where I’m currently.

I graduated from college on May 10th, 2008. I was there for 5.5 years, and there were times when it seemed like I would never graduate. After graduation, I knew I wanted to do something special for myself. I could have bought myself the latest pair of Michael Jordan shores or some speakers to go in my Malibu, the car I was driving then.

The Idea

Those things weren’t special enough to me. I realized that this gift had to be an experience, and it had to be something unique. One day, I watched the Atlanta Braves play, and the idea hit me like a Chipper Jones three-run homer. As a gift to myself, I decided to go to at least one new Major League Baseball game in a different city each summer. I could manage at least one new MLB stadium each year.

How Many MLB Stadiums Are There?

There are currently 30 MLB Stadiums.

  1. Arizona Diamondbacks – Chase Field
  2. Atlanta Braves – Truist Park
  3. Baltimore Orioles – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
  4. Boston Red Sox – Fenway Park
  5. Chicago Cubs – Wrigley Field
  6. Chicago White Sox – Guaranteed Rate Field
  7. Cincinnati Reds – Great American Ballpark
  8. Cleveland Guardians – Progressive Field
  9. Colorado Rockies – Coors Field
  10. Detroit Tigers – Comerica Park
  11. Houston Astros – Minute Maid Park
  12. Kansas City Royals – Kauffman Stadium
  13. Los Angeles Angels – Angel Stadium
  14. Los Angeles Dodgers – Dodger Stadium
  15. Miami Marlins – Loan Depot Park
  16. Milwaukee Brewers – American Family Field
  17. Minnesota Twins – Target Field
  18. New York Mets – Citi Field

  27. Tampa Bay Rays – Tropicana Field
  28. Texas Rangers – Globe Life Field
  29. Toronto Blue Jays – Rogers Centre
  30. Washington Nationals – Nationals Park

Next, I had to figure out what city I should start this baseball stadium tour in.

I’ve been an Atlanta Braves fan since I started watching sports in the early ’90s. They are my hometown team. There is no way that I could cheer for anyone but them. I had already been to numerous games at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium and Turner Field, so I couldn’t start the stadium tour there. I thought again, and a couple of vivid memories came to me. A team kicked our butts in the 1996 and the 1999 World Series. Their stadium was closing after the 2008 season, so I should start with them.

Just like that, I had made my choice. Yankee Stadium was the place where I wanted to start the tour. I hate the New York Yankees, but I am a huge fan of nostalgia, so I wanted it to be the first one on the MLB stadium list to visit.

I flew to New York the first weekend in August. To save money, I stayed with a friend in Brooklyn. I didn’t have a ticket, though. To this day, I wonder why I didn’t use StubHub. They were in business, but I forgot about them. I rode the train to the stadium solo and reached the ballpark about 10 minutes before the first pitch. I went to the ticket booth and scored the last bleacher seat ticket.

The rest, you can say, is history. Here are a few shots from Yankee Stadium.

Since that time, I have had the opportunity to visit at least one stadium each year.


Chicago Cubs – Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field

Wrigley is my favorite park to date. It has that old nostalgia feel to it. I’ve been to Wrigley twice, my first time being in 2009. I love the whole atmosphere of Wrigley and Wrigleyville.


Milwaukee Brewers – Miller Park (former name)


Washington Nationals – Nationals Park

Chicago White Sox – US Cellular Field (former name)

This park didn’t have that old-school feel like Wrigley, but I still had a good time.


Houston Astros – Minute Maid Park

Arizona Diamondbacks – Chase Field

Los Angeles Dodgers – Dodger Stadium

Dodger Stadium

I was able to see those stadiums on my Interstate 10 Cross Country trip. It was a heck of an experience. Out of the three stadiums that I saw on this trip, Dodger Stadium was my favorite.


Washington Nationals – Nationals Park

2014 was a busy year for me. While I didn’t get to see a new stadium, I was able to go to Washington, DC, during the summer and see a game at Nationals Park again.


Cleveland Indians – Progressive Field

Progressive Field was nice. It is located in downtown Cleveland. I’d visit it again.


Baltimore Orioles – Oriole Park at Camden Yards

San Diego Padres – Petco Park

Oriole Park at Camden Yards

I was able to visit two MLB Stadiums outside of Atlanta in 2016. Both stadiums were nice. Camden Yards is #2 on my favorite list after Wrigley. That park is very nice.


Miami Marlins – Marlins Park

Detroit Tigers – Comerica Park

Atlanta Braves – Suntrust Park (former name)

Comerica Park

The next two MLB stadiums that I visited were Marlins Park and Comerica Park. Suntrust Park also opened in Atlanta in 2017. I attended one game there that season.


New York Yankees – Yankee Stadium

New York Mets – Citi Field

Tampa Bay Rays – Tropicana Field

Tropicana Field

I visited three MLB stadiums in 2018. Yankee Stadium was nice, but it didn’t have the allure of the old Yankee Stadium. Citi Field was cool. It was better than Shea. Believe it or not, Tropicana Field was better than some people make it out to be.


Philadelphia Phillies – Citizens Bank Stadium

Citizen Banks Stadium


None due to COVID


Arizona Diamondbacks – Chase Field

Chase Field

I didn’t get to visit a new one, but I got to see Chase Stadium again.


Cincinnati Reds – Great American Ballpark

Great American Ballpark


Colorado Rockies – Coors Field
