And what's your favorite stadium besides your own team's?
I have been to so many Minor League stadiums over a few years when I was broadcasting. Surprisingly, I haven't been to many college stadiums. But that's something I'm looking forward to moving forward.
@John Peters Well, as a Pac-12 guy, I'd say Goss Stadium (Oregon State) has to be on that list. I'm not just talking about visiting the stadium, obviously, but attending a game :)! Just about any SEC or would be great. I'd love to see Swayze (Ole Miss), Dudy Noble (Miss St), Baum-Walker (Arkansas), and Alex Box (LSU). Historic.
@Chappy® Sunken Diamond is a really great Pac-12 stadium too. It's such a pretty setting.
@John Peters I've heard fans are a little far away from the action... as in... too much foul ground behind the dish. True? Not true?
Dudy Noble is the best stadium I've ever been to in college. Regions field is the best minor league stadium and Fenway in MLB
My visited list is way too short but at the top would have to be Ray Fisher Field at Michigan. It's well designed--no bad seats and decent capacity. It's also right off the heart of main campus, next to the historic hockey arena, easy to access. The field highlight is a sort of mini-Fenway green monster in left. The area under and behind the stands houses the baseball offices, and the entrance lobby has a very nice historical display of previous teams, players and coaches--and Michigan's baseball history is impressive. I watched most of last year's games there. On the downside, the fan attendance and knowlege is well, atrocious.
I've been to Ray Fisher and it is a nice ball park. I remember it sitting next to the track field and being able to see The Big House in the distance over the outfield wall. In my opinion, from an athletic standpoint, Michigan has better facilities than Ohio State top to bottom except for their basketball arena and their golf course. The Schott Center and Scarlet Course are pretty sweet.
College baseball wise I've been to every park in the SEC except Missouri, A&M, the new Florida and Kentucky fields (been to the the older ones though). ACC wise, I've been to GT, Miami, FSU, Clemson, WF, UNC, NC State, Duke, Louisville and UVA. Big 12 - UT, OU, OSU, TT, TCU and Baylor. B1G - MI, OSU, Maryland and Illinois. Pac-10 just USC. Regret not swinging by Stanford's, Cal's, UCLA's and ASU's when I've been in the area. This applies to Pitt's and Va Tech's as well. Been to several MAC, Conference USA, Sunbelt, and a few Ohio Valley fields. Been to Army's field at West Point too.
I got to go there in May 2019 for a series and I very much enjoyed it. I agree that the way it is nestled into campus provides a lot of the great atmosphere.
UFCU Disch-Falk field at Texas. Really great atmosphere. They hosted a 2018 Regional and Super Regional.
The Dude in Starkville my home away from home! #HailState🐶
The atmosphere looks unreal. That Super Regional last year was electric.
The Dude and Swayze are the top two stadiums in the fan vote as of now. Both of them are near the top of my bucket list.
Dudy Noble is the best I’ve been to, but we didn’t get to see a game there. Alex Box is the best I’ve seen action in. Both this year. Hoping to get to more in 2021.
Did you go to the Indiana vs LSU series this year? That was an entertaining series.
@John Peters Yes. We had a van of Indiana fans make the trip. It was a fun series.
TD Ameritrade is the best I've been to. I've visited Hawaii's stadium but never been to a game. It's really impressive.
Les Murikawa Stadium looks terrific, based on Big West telecasts from there. Great fans also, equal to those of various SEC schools, plus usually a pretty fun team to watch.
Edit: Murakami, not Murikawa.
