Dodger Stadium opened in '62, and Shea in '64. They've updated Dodger Stadium somewhat, but I don't know anyone who wants it torn down. Did they build Shea on the cheap, or what?

Give me Camden Yards or Pac Bell or Fenway or Wrigley ANY day. It's kind of like Belmont Park to me, OK facility, great history, but kind of dated.

I'm a Met fan with many fond memories of Shea, but I won't shed a tear when the Big Blue Boat is gone next year- it's the worst stadium in baseball by far.
i read a quote recently from a player that played in shea when it was new. they said it was a dump and it was brand new!

I remember as a kid seeing the Mick play in the old stadium when the pillars blocked the views.

Kubec to Richardson - Richardson to Skowron

Wait - I can't be that old...yikes

Scuds, Dodger stadium is a baseball only facility while Shea was built for the Jets & Mets. Pretty much every multi-sport facility sucks for baseball, and is better for football. This is the reason 3 Rivers, The Vet, Riverfront, J. Murphy etc... were all mediocre at best for baseball.

At least they realized these 2 sport facilities are crappy for baseball and they don't build them anymore. The bad thing is, as tax payers we're paying for 2 new stadiums in every major city.
