Texas

Hit my 30th and 31st parks two weeks ago in Texas.  (Now at 26 of the current 30).  Also drove by the old Astrodome, but couldn't get close enough for detailed pictures.  Immense security around Reliant Park for some reason.

 

Minute Maid Park

 

Went to two games at MMP.  Luckily I managed to get one game with the roof open and another with the roof closed.  The difference is night/day.  Basically two different parks.

I've only been to 24 of the current ballparks, but I have also been to five other parks no longer in service.  Here's an attempt to rank them.  The top 3 are the best, ranks 4-20 are relatively  interchangeable. 21-24 are rather dreadful.

Current:

1 - PNC Park - If there's a perfect park, this is it

2 - Oriole Park at Camden Yards - CLASSIC. Seems like it has been there for 50 years, but still new

3 - AT&T Park - Incredible setting

4 - Fenway Park - the…
