I have been traveling around the United States for 30+ years visiting ballparks/stadiums/arenas and all other sporting facilities/sites. It started out with a goal to see a game in all the major league ballparks, I have now seen a game in 53, but now the goal has since expanded into the almost 3,000 sites I wish to visit. With so many, I won’t be able to see an event in each place, but I will still visit the stadium/arena or former site. My passion has now become historic sites that once played host to athletic contests. The modern stadium/arena for the most part has become mundane and somewhat boring; the historic facilities and former sites are unique and all have a story to tell.

You will not see a grade or any other personalized comments about the sites, but rather factual information and odd trivia. Grading is a personal opinion on a facility and is often a 1-time experience grade. I have been to multiple stadiums multiple times and each time can be vastly different. My goal is to visit each site and snap a photo of me inside and outside of each facility and/or site while taking in as many contests as I can along the way. That is the beauty of this, some of these facilities are in out-of-the way places and the journey to them is what makes the trip special and unique.

This site will be continually updated as I have over 9,000 photos to upload to the stadium pages. I have taken each photo myself, some of the old ones are from 110 film and many are from 35mm, and the recent ones are now digital. Some were taken in very dark arenas or the settings may have been off. I do not attempt to be a professional photographer, my main goal is to get a photo of me inside and outside of each site.

The facilities are broken down into Tiers which are shown on the main page. As you can see, there are a lot of facilities in the United States and I am becoming aware of former facilities all the time. This is especially true in Minor League baseball as I continue to research leagues and teams. I have decided to place former Minor League stadiums only if the teams were affiliated with a big-league club.  I am always interested in your thoughts and experiences. Given my interest in the historic facilities and sites, I am documenting on this site if the facility is still standing and if not, if there is any type of a marker or other signage to indicate what once stood on the spot. Please reach out to me if there is a stadium or site that should be included and your comments. This is a site that will be constantly updated when I receive new information or other facts, so check back often. Thanks for visiting.
