What's your MLB stadium number?

    Bubbler's thread on finding the box scores for every game he's been to got me thinking about how many of the CURRENT MLB stadiums you have seen an actual baseball game in. For example, I went to the old Busch a few years ago, but haven't been to the new Busch, so I can't count that.

    Also, I don't care if you were there as a fan or working, but as long as it was a baseball game. I covered the '99 Final Four at Tropicana, but not a Rays game so I'm not counting that one.

    My total: 17

    Kansas City
    White Sox

    Side note: It looks like I'm going to add Pittsburgh to the list shortly and have heard only great things about the stadium. For you Iron City folks, a couple of questions: I'm assuming tickets aren't tough to get, correct? And where are the best places to sit in the stadium?

    You can sit almost anywhere and you'll be very happy. Tickets are ridiculously easy to get the night/day of the game unless there's a really big promotion or its a fireworks night. Even then, its usually pretty easy. If its a really nice night I like sitting somewhere behind home plate or just to the left or right of it even if it's in the upper deck. That way you have the best view of the skyline.

    I've been to three: Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Toronto.

    Went to Pittsburgh in July, 2005 when the Rockies were in town. Didn't bother getting tickets ahead of time as I figured there'd be plenty available at the box office but it was beach towel night. Luckily we got ours about 30 minutes before they sold out.
