Nice Clayton, I still say the K is the most beautiful park in MLB and puts all those stupid ugly ass downtown parks to shame.

You clearly haven't visited the Temple in Arlington.

I prefer Dodgers Stadium.

I have seats 5 rows up from first base but it just seems like anywhere in the stadium, I've got a great view. It really feels like you're in the game.

I've been to the "K" hundreds of times (World Series in 1980 & 1985) and hundreds of games from the 70's to as recent as 2005 and I've never felt as close to the game as I do in Dodgers Stadium.

I'm not saying that it's not a beautiful stadium but it's not my favorite park to watch baseball.

Isnt ironic that those two parks are just getting remodeled instead of building brand new parks?

Absolutely no offense intended but I don't understand your comment.

Which "two parks"? Arrowhead & Kaufman?

Where's the irony?

I find the feel of the two stadiums very similar and as I recall Royal stadium was somewhat modeled after Dodgers stadium. I agree it is a great stadium and possibly better for the feeling part of the game. I just feel the majesty of Royals (K) stadium with the Fountains and club over the 3rd base side is enchanting.

True I have not I just don't like the old style parks popular in downtowns. The worst is Petco Park in San Diego.

My parents were in town this past week and I took my Dad to his first Dodgers game.

Besides the fact he loved the Dodger Dogs, he just kept saying how much he loved the stadium and views! And he's a live-long Kansas Citian that's been to hundreds (if not thousands) of games in KC, including Arrowhead, Kaufman, Municipal and the old A's stadium on Brooklyn Avenue.

Man I still remember the game Stram brought back the Wing T against the Raiders what a sweet memory.

Clayton I am sure it is State of the Art it just lacks the symetry and flow of the graceful flowing lines of the K. I will admit Dane that Dodgers stadium has some better lines for viewing a game.

Cool!

I'd never heard him mention the A's stadium on Brooklyn until Friday night after the Dodgers game. I asked him if this was his first game outside of the "K" and he mentioned that experience.

Up until that point, I had wrong assumed the A's played at Municipal.

Pretty cool what you can learn from your Pop after all these years!
