Some stadiums are known for being massive megaplexes, others for their intimate feeling. Some are popular because they are old, others because they are brand spanking new. And some stadiums are known for an entirely different reason: because they are quirky.
Case Field, in Phoenix, is made for the staggering Arizona heat. The Field is fully air conditioned even when the roof is open, and there is a pool in the outfield.
Kaufmann Stadium has the Water Spectacular, a 322 foot fountain and waterfall. The fountain, the largest private fountain in the world, works between innings, before and after the game. The waterfall is constantly flowing in the Kansas City park.
Dodger Stadium, like the city it calls home, has a massive sign sitting on a hill for a panoramic statement, „Think Blue.“ The stadium is also dotted with inconsistently colored seats – blue, orange, yellow and teal.
Not to be topped by the „other“ Los Angeles team, the Angels have a rock water fountain in the form of an „A“ just past their left field fence. There’s also a massive haloed „A“ in the parking lot.
Tropicana Field has four catwalks that circumnavigate the parks dome. They are criticized by many as a ball that bounces off one of the two inside catwalks is still in play and can be caught for an out. The outfield catwalks being hit can signify either a home run or a foul, dependent upon where the ball strikes.
The Houston Astros play in another juice making field, Minute Maid Park. The Juice Train, filled with giant oranges, runs along the left field when home runs are hit. Because of its smaller than average dimensions, Minute Maid Park is lovingly nicknamed „The Juice Box.“
