Marlins Park makes 30
In a stat that will likely be meaningful to only me, this four-game Reds-Marlins series marks my first time at Marlins Park since it opened. For whatever reason, I wasn’t on the trips here the previous two seasons.
But by going to Target Field in Minneapolis for the All-Star and now here, I have now been to all 30 current Major League ballparks. My total number is 41 when you add the following places no longer existing as MLB stadiums:
Riverfront Stadium (CIN)
Old Yankee Stadium (NYY)
Shea Stadium (NYM)
Joe Robbie Stadium (FLA)
County Stadium (MIL)
Tiger Stadium (DET)
Cleveland Municipal Stadium (CLE)
RFK Stadium (WAS)
Olympic Stadium (Montreal)
Veterans Stadium (PHI)
For honorable mention — I’ve also been to Three Rivers Stadium (PIT), the Astrodome (HOU) and Memorial Stadium (BAL) but that was to cover NFL games
I will try to post some more pictures of Marlins Park when I can.
