In my travels, some personal and some business, I've managed to attend ballgames in varied ballparks. I didn't always have my camera with me, but I did manage to obtain a few shots with interesting perspectives on ballparks. Below you'll find a photo of Dodger Stadium which to me symbolizes its beauty; another of the now demolished Three Rivers Stadium that gives a little of the feeling of what it was like to be sitting in the hot sun on the third base side of one of the 1970's style round artificial turf ballparks; and finally, for those LA Dodgers fans who never saw where the Dodger AAA farmhands came from for many years, a couple of shots of the Albuquerque Sports Stadium in New Mexico, home of the late, lamented Albuquerque Dukes (the Dukes moved to Portland, OR, and ceased their affiliation with the Dodgers after the 2000 season--the Dodger AAA farm team is now in Las Vegas, NV). However, Albuquerque is getting a new AAA team in 2003. And a new Albuquerque ballpark is now being built on the site of the old one seen below. Once the new team is established, I'm hoping to visit and get some photos of the new team and ballpark.

One of the most interesting new parks in baseball is Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Go to this page to see what it looked like the day I was there during its first season.

For those visitors to this web site who may be wondering what I look like, here's a photograph of me with the great Dodger announcer Vin Scully, taken in July 1997, at Dodger Stadium by Ben Platt, formerly Dodger webmaster and now a national correspondent for Major League Baseball.
