    The Ballpark in Arlington. Home of the Texas Rangers. I'm ready...

    Built in 1994, the Ballpark was designed by David M. Schwarz Architectural Services of Washington, D.C. The Rangers chose to build a retro-style ballpark, incorporating many features of baseball's Jewel Box parks. A roofed home run porch in right field is reminiscent of Tiger Stadium, while the white steel frieze that surrounds the upper deck was copied from the pre-1973 Yankee Stadium. The out-of-town scoreboard (removed in 2009 and replaced with a state-of-the-art videoboard) was built into the left-field wall—a nod to Fenway Park, while the numerous nooks and crannies in the outfield fence are a reminder of Ebbets Field. The park's red brick and granite exterior was copied from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, while the arched windows are a reminder of Comiskey Park. However, it has a few distinct features of its own. Several traditional Texas-style stone carvings are visible throughout the park. A four-story office building in center field encloses the park, with a white steel multilevel facade similar to the facade on the roof. -wiki

      Nice job Cliff! Thanks for the info on the stadium. I'm a die-hard Tigers fan so it's nice to know they incorporated some of the architecture from old Tiger Stadium into the park as well as some of the other old classics.

      Baseball stadiums always leave me in awe of their architecture. There even more amazing when they're filled up with people :D
