I have no idea why the photos ended up different sizes. *kicks photobucket* Sorry the page is stretched. I was trying to avoid that.

I love ball parks. Never been to one with a dome before, though. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. Part of the fun is being outside.

^ Trust me, in some places, it's desperately needed. You try going to a game in Phoenix or Houston without a roof. You'd cook inside of 3 seconds. (And it also eliminates rain delays.)

At least in most ballparks with a roof (except for Tampa Bay), they can retract.

Clearly, you have never spent a summer day in Houston. There is nothing fun about being outside in the summertime in Houston.

I think MLB should make having a roof or retractable roof a requirement for all new Ball parks going forward.

@auntie: Are you from Houston? I had a pretty good time there although I was on an organized tour so I didn't have time to do much exploring.

I'm of two minds regarding this idea, in that I have fond memories of freezing my balls off during April games at Wrigley Field, but it's not a terrible concept -- the issue is that Commissioner Selig has extorted new stadiums out of almost every municipality. San Francisco funded their own and it's not going anywhere, the Ricketts family is funding renovations for Wrigley (even though it's a shithole and needs to be burned to the ground), the A's aren't going anywhere (and neither are the Rays), the Dodgers are getting Chavez Ravine overhauled, and the only other candidate for a new stadium is the new Braves park going up in Cobb County, and they really, really don't need a retractable roof.

I live in the 'burbs, about 30/40 minutes from Minute Maid Park--very close to Sugarland, if you know where that is.

I have been to the outside of the building, around it and above it (in the nearby hotel) but never in it. I'm not interested in baseball and I married one of the very few men in Texas who hates sports.

Great photos macloudt, I love the Star Trek game and the pebbles. I remember being enchanted with the pebbles of Brighton beach, how unique each one is.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

One more picture...



This is the site (in Detroit) where old Tiger Stadium used to be. Those people in the blue and orange shirts, are fans who have been maintaining the site on their own since the stadium was demolished (the field they're playing on, plus the flagpole, is basically all that remains of Tiger Stadium).
