I was so glad when our speech and debate team decided to go to Wrigley Field when we were at a National Championship Tournament in Chicago. I was loving it because I realized where I was at. The only bad thing was that we were on the third base shade seats in May. The ivy wasn't out yet, it was probably only about 45 degrees, plus the wind was insane. I didn't care because I was wearing three shirts and two pairs of pants (I dress accordingly). But, most of the girls that were there wanted to leave because they were totally freezing. We left in the 6th inning, so I didn't even get to sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" with Harry Carey. That I wasn't too pleased with either. Otherwise I had a good time (plus I was sitting right next to a girl I liked so it was a bonus).

My first game was in Three Rivers - up in level 640!!! God, that was so high up; I was afraid I was going to fall off the overhang. Luckily, that was when the Pirates were really good and that day Doug Drabek pitched a three hitter as the Pirates won 3-0 over the Padres. I had a lot of fun at that game.

i remember three rivers...we always sat in the last row or close to it, and the fence to keep people from jumping out was broken behind us :-o i was afraid of falling over the side too, and i was leaning on a wall eerily similar to the one that collapsed at the time it did collapse... :-o
not a very happy experience.
it was a good plan for a multi-functional stadium, but i dont think it was good for either sport at all. you couldnt see the field really at all when they were playing...then again i was a little kid most of the time

Haven't been to a whole ton of them:

Wrigley (cubs), Turner (braves), Fulton County (old Braves), Tropicana (Drays), Pro Player (Marlins), and Kingdome (old Mariners).

Without a doubt, the best is Tropicana field. Why? BECAUSE THEY HAVE AN OUTBACK IN THE STADIUM, GAME OVER THREAD WON, THANK YOU.
