Nothing to do with baseball? Baseball grew out of rounders. Never mind! I was about to, but you're quite right about me not bothering to argue that point. I'm done. Go visit the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame site, and take it up with them instead. There are a whole whack of people who would willingly debunk your claims. I'm not committing any more time to this. I'm off to another thread.
yes, claims backed up by historical fact, by a man who has made it his lifes work. That makes lots of sense. Dont argue with me, im right, your wrong. End of story

How can you pick just 10? I stopped when I got up to 27 and still wasn't even out of Europe yet!

Are we talking marks out of ten for size, innovation, facilities, aesthetics, etc.?

That he's spent his whole life on this only makes it sad. There are a whole whack of academics who could pick apart his theories. Maybe your grand dad isn't very bright. Best not break it to him. He's old.

It seems tunnel vision and stubborn mindedness runs in the family.

Thats a good way to do it, the one I did on the last page was on inovation, historical significance and aesthetics, but size and fancy can certainly play a big role, i just feel there should be something behind peoples choices, not just "I like these becuase they look good", or what have you.

Well baseball is just a derivative of rounders, the english schoolgirls game. In any case, baseball was written about in a childs book in England in the mid 1700's.

Rounders itself was most likely a simplified version of the granddaddy of all bat and ball games - cricket.

Which brings us to Lords - 1787/1814

Yes, Lord's is indeed quite the stadium. That media pavilion was a brilliant addition in my opinion.

Wow. They are nice stadiums because of the setting they are in. In all three, they are located on the waterfront or very close to it. I like the Monaco one the best, from the sides, it looks like luxury apartment villas!

PNC Park, Pittsburgh, PA.





Coors Field, Denver, CO.

It has a terrific view of the Rocky Mountains.

Camden Yards, Baltimore, MD.




That long building next to the stadium is a warehouse which dates back to the 1890s. It was incorporated into the stadium when the stadium was built in 1992, and actually is the longest building on the entire East Coast.

Hong Kong Stadium, Hong Kong:



I can't find any pictures but Netherdale Stadium in Galasheils in the Scottish Borders has a wonderful location, overlooking the Eildon Hills.

Here's another beautiful ballpark - Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, CA.











Dodger Stadium is actually built into a hill right north of downtown LA, and has a beautiful vista of the rolling hills of LA. Right behind it, of course, is the skyline of the city, which is visible from the top of upper deck (if you look backwards) and when you enter the stadium. Between the pastel colors of the seats, the roof over the bleachers, and the way the stadium interacts with the hills beyond its outfield (and the hill into which it is built), it's really a beautiful place.
