Scott Nordtome MLB Bucket List

  1. 1. Scott Nordtome
  2. 2. New Yankee Stadium
  3. 3.  Opened in 2009, the new stadium is meant to be very similar in design to the original Yankee Stadium, both in its original 1923 state and its post-renovation state in 1976. The exterior resembles the original look of the 1923 Yankee Stadium. The interior, a modern ballpark with greater space and increased amenities, features a playing field that closely mimics the 1988-2008 dimensions of the old park.
  4. 4. Fenway Park, Boston
  5. 5.  One of two “classic” ballparks still in use today. Because of the ballpark's age and constrained location in the dense Fenway– Kenmore neighborhood, the park has had many renovations and additions over the years not initially envisioned, resulting in unique, quirky features, including "The Triangle," "Pesky's Pole", and most notably the famous Green Monster in left field.
  6. 6. Wrigley Field, Chicago
  7. 7.  The other “classic” ballpark still in use. Wrigley Field is nicknamed The Friendly Confines, a phrase popularized by "Mr. Cub", Hall of Famer Ernie Banks. The current capacity is 41,009,[2] making Wrigley Field the 10th-smallest actively used ballpark. Wrigley is known for its ivy covered brick outfield wall, the unusual wind patterns off Lake Michigan, the iconic red marquee over the main entrance, the hand turned scoreboard, and for being the last major league park to have lights installed for play after dark.
  8. 8. Busch Stadium, St. Louis
  9. 9.  Busch Stadium (also referred to informally as "New Busch Stadium" or "Busch Stadium III") is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, of MLB. The stadium hosted the 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 14, 2009.
  10. 10. Coors Field, Denver
  11. 11.  Coors Field is a baseball venue located in Denver, Colorado It is the home field of Major League Baseball's Colorado Rockies. While most of the seats in Coors Field are dark green, the seats in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple. This marks the city's one mile elevation point. It is by far the highest park in the majors, and designers knew that the low air density at such a high elevation would result in balls traveling further than in other parks.
