As the World Series travels from St Louis to Texas, I thought it would be interesting to take a look back at these two ballparks. Both Busch Stadium and Rangers Ballpark In Arlington are relatively new compared to some of the older stadiums like Fenway or Wrigley.
I’ve been to both of these stadiums, and I have to say, they’re both absolutely fantastic. I know I might be a little biased towards Busch Stadium (screw Disneyworld, it’s MY happiest place on earth), but the atmosphere in Texas is infectious. The game I saw there was against the Orioles, rain delayed and everything, and you could STILL feel how much these fans loved their baseball. It was a fantastic experience.
So let’s take a look back at how these great ballparks got to where they are now.
And, just because we can, let’s take a second to remember all the ballparks that used to be around but have since been taken from us.
