Chase Field

We will probably never see baseball games from inside every stadium in the U.S., but we do like to tour other teams' ballparks whenever we're out-of-town. Phoenix's Diamondbacks currently have a special place in my heart because their manager, Kirk Gibson, is my all-time favorite ball-player. (Yes, we were in Dodgers Stadium when he hit the famous home run that led his team to their first win in the 1988 World Series). So, of course, we had to visit Chase Field, home of the D-backs.

Like many of the newer stadiums, Chase Field is built in the style of earlier ballparks—brick architecture and lots of fan amenities—but is completely modern and HUGE! A retractable roof can be closed when the weather gets too hot. The stadium even has a pool that fans can rent for parties during game days. See for yourself:
