Taking Back the Ballparks - Dodgers voting thread
  by SoSH U at work

This one’s simple enough. The existing name, or it’s long-time alt handle.

A) Chavez Ravine
B) Dodger Stadium

Taking Back the Ballparks - Los Angeles Dodgers
  by SoSH U at work

Another older gem. Even before I made my maiden visit two weeks ago, it was a ballpark I could identify immediately the moment the game was turned on, even absent any Dodger blue or the guy in the Ecuadorian* straw hat who used to stand behind home plate with the JUGS Gun.

The layout, once more ...

The Final Push
  by Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington

24 games to go.  Cubs still have 8 games left on this 23 straight day stretch, but only 2 more real road trips - DC this weekend and and Phoenix in a couple of weeks; the only other road games are today in Milwaukee and 3 at The Cell.  A 3 game lead is far from comfortable, especially after the way ...

Join Jim’s OOTP League

Taking Back the Ballparks - Toronto Blue Jays
  by SoSH U at work

We leave the states to visit our friends to the north. Canada’s team began play in the futuristic SkyDome in 1989, though it got its current Rogers Centre name, complete with Canadian spelling, in 2005.
