This is because a ballpark that faces east (and to a lesser extent, one that faces south) would have the sun directly in the hitters' eyes, especially during night games during sundown. There's a pretty good amount of ballparks that actually face directly away from a skyline for that reason (Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, Wrigley Field, Dodger Stadium and the Great American Ball Park are all good examples of this - all have fantastic views of their respective skylines when looking backwards from the upper deck).

Although I absolutely love ballparks that look directly into a skyline.
Thanks for the information. Very useful actually

Was just thinking of the large amount of stadiums built facing the city's skyline in recent years.

Dodger Stadium is a gigantic car park with a stadium attached to it. The car congestion on the freeway after a game must be horrendous.

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.
I don't mean to offend you and I also admit everyone has his or her own eyes for beauty, but, to me, aerial view of Dodger Stadium is monstrous rather than beautiful. Am I the only one who feels that way?

But the best one is....

But no stadiums have most beautiful position than Venice one.

Could anyone post Stadio Sant'Elena in Venice.

It is on an island at the end of Canal Grande. The teams and fans arrive at the stadium by boat.

The name is STADIO SANT'ELENA, magic atmosphere.

Maybe the thread title should read "Beautiful stadium settings" Most of the stadiums themselves posted on here aren't really too beautiful.

agreed. peoples view will vary from whats beautiful and whats not. To me simply putting water near a stadium or having a view of a skyscraper does not make it beautiful.

Charactar makes a stadium attractive. IMO, of the recently posted stadiums, only Lords and the posted Changlimithang Stadium achieve that.

Estadio Riazor





But it's a pity that this fantastic remodelling plan is on hold for many years. What's the reason? Lack of money? Failure to get approval?
