Yeah, I am very excited about going there. AT&T Park and Dodger Stadium are the ones I'm most looking forward to on this tour.
Are you doing a ballpark tour? I think I heard something last year about a group of friends that did a summer tour of all the ballparks. Sounded like a lot of fun (if a bit expensive).

Growing up in Chicago (and a Cubs fan) I've been to Wrigley Field more times than I can remember. Been to both old and new Comiskey Park as well.

Last year, while in Baltimore for a concert fest I went to two games at Camden Yards. A great ballpark for sure and I had a lot of fun. Surprisingly its the only other professional park I've been to outside of Chicago (Driven outside of Kaufman and Busch, but never been inside them). I'm hoping if I get stationed in D.C. like I want to next year I'll get to see the Cubs play the Nats in their stadium and probably catch some more Os games at Camden Yards.

Have fun!
Chicago native here. I love Wrigley, and the old Comisky. I hate Cellular Field or whatever they call the new Comisky.
Yeah I've only been to new Comisky (or US Celleular or whatever) once or twice and it was years ago.

2011 was the first time I did the rooftops at Wrigley. I traveled home from Huntsville for Memorial Day weekend just for the game. It was a rain delay, but luckily it cleared up just in time...however we were all pretty wasted on the free beer and food while waiting for the rain to clear up. Had to make a few trips down to Murphy's and the Cubbie Bear once the game started since the rooftops stopped providing the drinks after 3 hours even though the game was delayed by almost all of that.
