"Good review Tim. I agree that while the Trop isn't the best baseball atmosphere, the Rays have made a lot of great improvements to the place, and going into an air-conditioned dome on a hot day isn't so bad."

Winter Classic Coming To Citizens Bank Park

Posted on May 13, 2011 at 1:25pm 0 Comments

Well the news is out: the Philadelphia Flyers will probably be playing the New York Rangers in the NHL’s yearly Winter Classic, and the venue will be Philadelphia’s superb Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies.

 

Not much more you need to know, except that they haven’t established the date yet; the Eagles will be playing the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field across the street on the traditional New Year’s Day, assuming the football…

Latest tip on the Ballpark E-Guides Blog:

 

Ballpark E-Guides makes every effort to give you any information you could use for going to a ballgame. Some ballparks present different challenges than others. At Yankee Stadium the challenge is to leave the game with a few bucks left in your wallet. At Citizens Bank Park you should know the differences between all of the cheesesteak options. And at Fenway the biggest problem to be solved is simply how to get into the…

Secret Stadium Sauce at Miller Park

Posted on February 4, 2011 at 7:29am 5 Comments

Wisconsin is brat country, something I learned too late after my first trip to Miller Park.

 

While I liked Miller, I was a little bit miffed at the low quality of the hot dog. I believe at the time I declared it to be the worst dog I’d ever had at a ballgame, and I liked Wendy Selig less afterward for it. (This was in 2001 when she still owned the Brewers.) As far as I was concerned, there was no excuse for a ballpark in Wisconsin to have a lousy hot dog.

 

It…

Citizens Bank Park – A Must Visit For Any Baseball Fan

Posted on February 4, 2011 at 5:51am 6 Comments

I live in South Jersey, which is unequivocally Philadelphia sports country. Nobody around here is a Giants or Rangers or Knicks fan, and the occasional Devils fan you find is not very vocal about it. People here bleed Eagles green, Flyers orange and Phillies red, and no one cares too much about the 76ers.

 

I don’t live and die with the Flyers’ fortunes and care much less about the Eagles, but I must admit that the new, revitalized sports complex in Philadelphia is quite the…

Thanks for the tips on Wrigley.  The Chicago dog was great. Can't wait to get to the next stadiums this summer.

Very cool, and very helpful...I went to Turner way back in 1999 and did use the bus, although I don't remember if I took the train or not. So I know now traffic isn't worth the hassle.

One question, I doubt you know the answer but...when you get off the train at Five Points, is there a shuttle right there or do you have to go through Atlanta Underground?

Hi Kurt. I haven't lived in that neck of the woods since 2003, but I'm a big proponent of public transportation. Check out MARTA


Check out my comments on Turner Field (no secrets except use MARTA and if you get a chance, take the tour of the stadium - that was excellent)

Meg Turner Field Comments

I'm new to this site so you may have received a few 'emails' from me. Still trying to figure out things here.
