Best MLB stadiums to visit for a game
The sun is shining, the weather is hot, and the buns are out!
Now whether you interpreted that as hot dog buns, or actual booty (the gluteus maximus), that’s your deal.
But I’ll tell ya — there’s nothing like an end of summer baseball game, with a loaded hot dog in hand, and watching some fine athletes play America’s greatest pastime.
And with that spirit in mind, I have put together a list of the best baseball stadiums to hit before the summer (and season) ends!
Home of the San Francisco Giants.
My sister, Courtney, just went there a month ago and she can vouch this stadium is bomb! Good views from all angles of the stadium and great garlic fries!
AT&T Park has a digital scoreboard as well as a manual scoreboard.
Fun fact: there is an exclusive bar directly behind the manually-run scoreboard. And by exclusive I mean you are VIP or a former player.
Did I mention that this exclusive bar has a bowling alley and pool tables? I haven’t seen it, just dreaming of the day.
Home of the Boston Red Sox.
What a historic place! The Green Monster gave me actual chills when I was in there for my first game. I witnessed a home run over the monster and I swear I heard the check mark occur off of my bucket list.
Don’t ask too many questions when ordering at the concession stands, you’ll get a piece of that Bostonian personality at its finest.
Don’t forget to look for the three scorekeepers that manually place the plates on the scoreboard!
Home of the San Diego Padres.
What’s better then a gorgeous summer day in San Diego?
Fans are able to see the San Diego Bay, the San Diego Skyline, and Balboa Park.
Oh, and did I mention that there is a lawn in the outfield that people can sit on to watch the game?
They even offer a specific game where your dog is allowed entrance (with a prior application submittal). And, I’m all about bringing my dog wherever I can! Win, win!
Home of the Chicago Cubs.
And home to the ivy-covered outfield — what a staple! All the feels in this very retro stadium.
Wrigley is also one of the few remaining stadiums that still utilizes a scoreboard that can only be changed by hand.
Home of the Seattle Mariners.
When in Seattle, it’s going to rain. But not to worry, this stadium has a retractable roof.
But if you know Seattle, you know that the summers are absolutely gorgeous.
In this stadium, you don’t have to eat traditional baseball food if you’re not feeling it. You can get BBQ, seafood, sushi, pad thai, burritos and more.
Might as well go for the fish when you’re that close to the water. But be sure to wash it down with a cool brewski.
Home of the St. Louis Cardinals.
This stadium offers great views of the City of St Louis. Not to mention, it is named after Anheuser-Busch located in St Louis.
This just means there is a bountiful supply of beer for you here!
You are definitely going to want to bust out your iPhone and get a panoramic photo in this stadium.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Home of the Baltimore Orioles.
In 1992, the Orioles got their very own “retro” style stadium. And ever since that stadium was built, other teams have followed suit trying to achieve that same vibe in their stadium.
There are picnic areas above each bullpen, brick walls and iconic bronze statues of six Orioles Greats within this stadium giving it that classic baseball game feeling.
Home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
HELLO VIEWS! Every seat in the House has a good angle to watch their boys play.
There is views of the city, the river and the Roberto Clemente bridge. People even sit in their small boats on the river waiting for their chance to catch a foul ball!
Pretty awesome if you ask me…
After writing this article I’m feeling a bit hungry for a hot dog and a good ‘ole ball game.
Tag TCD in your hot dog and ball game photos! We’re always looking to swoon over a good hot dog.
