2008 will be a great season to get out of the office and catch a Major League Baseball game. The league certainly doesn’t NEED your patronage, as ticket sales have continued to soar in previous seasons, but there are two special reasons to get to the ballpark in 2008:
- Yankees fan needs one last experience in the “House That Ruth Built.” Yankee Stadium closes at the end of the season.
- Nationals Park in Washington, DC is the only new ballpark to open this season.
If you are making plans to get to these ballparks or any of the other 28 Major League stadiums this season, Fantasy Baseball Dugout would like to let you know about a special offer for discount baseball tickets from our friends at RazorGator.

BatBoy BeeZee has been to his fair share of Major League Baseball stadiums during his quarter-century on the globe. Here are the ones he has visited, in order of how many times he’s visited them…
- Oriole Park at Camden Yards: BeeZee’s family use to have Sunday season tickets to the Baltimore Orioles.
- Veterans Stadium (former home of the Philadelphia Phillies): Ballpark Bob has had Phillies season tickets for as long as BeeZee can remember.
- PNC Park: A beautiful stadium to visit if you simply love baseball. Too bad the home team field product is always so bad.
- Memorial Stadium (former home of the Baltimore Orioles): East 33rd Street in Baltimore also hosted a CFL team and the Baltimore Ravens for a short time after the Orioles moved out following the 1991 season.
- Citizens Bank Park: caught one awesomely delayed rainout and a second game at the Bank in its opening year. Any ballpark with Turkey Hill Iced Tea at the concessions is good with me.
- Fenway Park: Caught a Yanks/Sawks game at Fenway in the 1990′s… the teams weren’t quite as even then as they are today, but it was still one of life’s great experiences.
- Coors Field: Barry Bonds torched the Rox the day I visited Coors, as he was a triple short of the cycle.
- Progressive Field (aka Jacobs Field): Didn’t see a game there… but I did get a stadium tour. That count?
- Rogers Centre (aka SkyDome): The third-base line seats made for a perfect place to harass former Jays hot corner Tony Batista for three hours!
