Here are, in my opinion, the top 10 major league stadiums to watch and experience a postseason game, either on television or in person.
Some of these may not be the state of the art or beautiful ballparks that we have come to know, but in October, there is no place a true baseball fan would rather be.
Though the Cleveland fans have been seeking that ever elusive championship for decades, Jacobs Field's waterfront location and cold-weather conditions come October make for a great place to watch a fall game.
The team hasn't won any World Series since they've played there, but the fans are extremely loyal and passionate, exhibited by the impressive six-year sellout streak in the early 2000's.
Best Playoff Game: 1995 World Series, Game Three (Indians 7, Braves 6)
Best Playoff Performance: 1995 ALDS, Game Two: Orel Hershiser 7 1/3 shutout innings (Indians 4, Red Sox 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 1997 ALDS, Game Four: Sandy Alomar Jr. HR off Mariano Rivera (Indians 3, Yankees 2)
Many legends have played for the Giants during the team's time in both New York and San Francisco, but since the team has moved to its' new digs by the bay, playoff games have provided great excitement for the West Coast fans.
The stadium has hosted both the single-season and all-time home run chase, and although those took place in the regular season, the 2002 season resulted in fall jubilation.
Best Playoff Game: 2002 NLCS, Game Five (Giants 2, Cardinals 1)
Best Playoff Performance: 2003 NLDS, Game One: Jason Schmidt CG shutout (Giants 3, Marlins 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 2002 NLDS, Game Five: Kenny Lofton's game and series-winning single (Giants 2, Cardinals 1)
The reason that Dodger Stadium isn't higher up on this list is the demeanor of many Dodger fans.
Known to be laissez-faire and a bit hands-off when it comes to baseball, the SoCal fans aren't as passionate as those on the East Coast.
However, the Dodgers' success more than compensates for this flaw. Magical postseason performances and a World Series victory have taken place in this stellar location.
Best Playoff Game: 1988 World Series, Game One (Dodgers 5, Athletics 4)
Best Playoff Performance: 1988 NLCS, Game Seven: Orel Hershiser CG shutout (Dodgers 6, Mets 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 1988 World Series, Game One: Kirk Gibson's walk-off HR (Dodgers 5, Athletics 4)
Similar to Cleveland, Philadelphia has been devoid of championships for the most part, not just in baseball.
Citizens Bank combines both state of the art, modern perks for the fans, and postseason success for the Phils.
Another great cold weather city makes for October thrill, and a passionate fan base only makes it better. It all reached an apex last October, as the Phillies won their first title since 1980.
Best Playoff Game: 2008 World Series, Game Three (Phillies 5, Rays 4)
Best Playoff Performance: 2008 NLDS, Game One: Cole Hamels' eight shutout innings (Phillies 3, Brewers 1)
Best Playoff Moment: 2008 World Series, Game Five: Brad Lidge strikes out Eric Hinske for Phillies' first title since 1980 (Phillies 4, Rays 3)
Yes, it's still a football stadium, and it may one of cheapest, poorest, and most dull ballparks in the league, but the A's and their playoff opponents have provided many a great playoff game during their time in the Oakland Coliseum.
The A's may be in the market for relocation or a new stadium, but let's remember the good times that the green and gold have enjoyed on the left coast.
Best Playoff Game: 1988 World Series, Game Three (Athletics 2, Dodgers 1)
Best Playoff Performance: 1989 World Series, Game One: Dave Stewart CG shutout (Athletics 5, Giants 1)
Best Playoff Moment: 2001 ALDS, Game Three: Derek Jeter's "flip" to home plate to retire Jeremy Giambi (Yankees 1, Athletics 0)
Though the Metrodome's run comes to end after this season, it has been host to a number of postseason series, including two World Series, and some of the better postseason performances in recent baseball memory.
Noise stays inside for increased fan impact, and some of the unique features like "the Baggie" and "the Plexiglass" have changed the game.
Best Playoff Game: 1991 World Series, Game Seven (Twins 1, Braves 0)
Best Playoff Performance: 1991 World Series, Game Sevem: Jack Morris 10-inning CG shutout (Twins 1, Braves 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 1991 World Series, Game Six: Kirby Puckett's walk-off HR
The lovable losers have inhabited this great baseball cathedral for nearly a century.
And though they've never won a World Series in it, even after playing in it since 1916, Wrigley Field has provided us with many great playoff games.
Chicago is one of the best cities in the country, and it is home of to one of the majors' best ballparks on its' northside.
Best Playoff Game: 2003 NLCS, Game One (Marlins 9, Cubs 8)
Best Playoff Performance: 1984 NLCS, Game One: Rick Sutcliffe's seven shutout innings and solo HR (Cubs 13, Padres 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 2003 NLCS, Game Seven: Cub fan Steve Bartman interferes with Moises Alou on Luis Castillo foul ball (Marlins 8, Cubs 3)
The Mets have been the second rate team in the Big Apple for as long as they have existed, but there is and was no better playoff atmosphere in the National League than Shea.
Home to two World Series championship teams and great postseasons in 1999 and 2000, the Met fans really came into their own and made their stadium a true home-field advantage.
Best Playoff Game: 1999 NLCS, Game Five (Mets 4, Braves 3)
Best Playoff Performance: 2000 NLCS, Game Five: Mike Hampton's CG shutout (Mets 7, Cardinals 0)
Best Moment: 1986 World Series, Game Six: Mookie Wilson's groundball goes through legs of Bill Buckner (Mets 6, Red Sox 5)
Another franchise that struggled to win a World Series (until 2004), Boston has played in a ballpark with numerous great moments despite their postseason failure.
The atmosphere within the ballpark, added to the passion and rugged intensity of the Boston fans, makes for the perfect combination when watching a postseason game.
Best Playoff Game: 2004 ALCS, Game Five (Red Sox 5, Yankees 4)
Best Playoff Performance: 2007 ALDS, Game One: Josh Beckett CG shutout (Red Sox 4, Angels 0)
Best Playoff Moment: 2004 ALCS, Game Four: David Ortiz' walk-off HR (Red Sox 6, Yankees 4)
Simply the best. The team with the most World Series titles, American League pennants, and playoff appearances has produced infinite great postseason moments.
They've had the best players, the best teams, and it all adds up to their previous locale as being the best postseason atmosphere in recent baseball history.
Best Playoff Game: 2001 World Series, Game Four (Yankees 4, Diamondbacks 3)
Best Playoff Performance: 2003 ALCS, Game Seven: Yankees' eighth inning comeback from down 5-2 to 5-5 (Yankees 6, Red Sox 5)
Best Playoff Moment: 2003 ALCS, Game Seven: Aaron Boone walk-off HR to clinch AL pennant (Yankees 6, Red Sox 5)
