(Newser) – In choosing the best place to watch a ballgame, Chris De Luca decided to keep the team and city out of the discussion. With that in mind, the Chicago Sun-Times presents his list:

  1. Fenway Park: the flawed classic.
  2. Safeco Field: the high-tech home of the Mariners.
  3. Yankee Stadium: sadly, not long for this world.

  1. Kauffman Stadium: out of the way in Kansas City, but so right for baseball.
  2. PNC Park: has steel girders and view of Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente Bridge.
  3. Dodger Stadium: devoid of odd corners.
  4. AT&T Park: where the San Francisco Giants homer into McCovey Cove.
  5. Camden Yards: the first of the modern-throwback parks.
