    Know this is crossing into the "sports" realm, but what historic ball park would you like to have had the opportunity to watch a team play?

    Growing up in Minneapolis, my family told me about the "Trolley Yard" where the Minneapolis Millers played the St. Paul Saints. By the time I got old enough to go, they had built a metal, sterile "Metropolitan Stadium" out in a cornfield a few miles south of the city.

    That became home to the Twins and Vikes in 1960 and I grew to love the stadium. But would have liked to see one game in the old Nicolet Field at the Trolley Yard before it was condemned.

    I would have loved to have seen

    1) The Polo Grounds
    2) Ebbetts Field
    3) Old Comisky Park
    4) Jarry Park (The Montreal Expos original home)

    Yankee Stadium, even though it only dates back 30 years (the previous incarnation was pretty much destroyed during the upgrade in the 70's).

    I guess, now that the Angels have won the world series, Edison Field is now a historic venue [​IMG] .

    First of all there are a couple of current ballparks that I consider Historic.

    1. Wrigley Field
    2. Fenway Park
    3. Yankee Stadium

    I have been to Wrigley and Fenway.

    I missed my opportunity to go to Old Cominsky.

    I would have liked to go to Sportsmans Park in St. Louis.
