What Are The Most Historic Baseball Stadiums?

Bleacher Report Senior Writer IJuly 15, 2008

1. Yankee Stadium


I have never been there, but I will be going there later in the summer and I look forward to it.


The house that Ruth built was built was built 85 years ago, in 1923 for a value of two billion dollars.


It was built in just over year. Alas, this is the last year of Yankee stadium.


2. Wrigley Field


Opened 94 years ago, Wrigley Field has been a base in movies such as Rookie of the Year (1993) and Bleacher Bums (1977).


Wrigley is a “state of the art” ballpark and holds 41,118 people.


The Cubs have had some great moments there, the whole Sammy Sosa chase in 1998, Ernie Banks hitting No. 500, etc.


3. Fenway Park


Four “Yawkey Way” was built 97 years ago for $650 thousand.


The Red Sox stadium has some great aspects: The Pesky Pole in right, the Green Monster in left, the Fisk Pole in left as well and the Canvas Alley, where the grounds crew sits.


Fenway holds a little less than 40,000 people.


4. Oriole Park at Camden Yards


The Orioles have been playing at OPACY since 1992.


It holds 48,876, but the O's usually draw 25,000 on a good night, unfortunately.


There have been some incredible games at OPACY such as Sept. 6, 1995 when Cal Ripken broke Lou Gehrig's streak for most consecutive games played.


5. Citizens Bank Park


CBP was opened just four years ago for a cost of $365 million.


There are many attractions there, such as Ashburn Alley where there is a statue of legendary player and broadcaster Richie Ashburn.
