Chat with Rob Neyer
How old are Wrigley Field and Fenway Park? Since they opened -- Fenway in 1912, Wrigley in 1916 -- dozens of stadiums have been built and then torn down. Currently, Dodger Stadium is the third-oldest ballpark in the majors (or the fourth-oldest if you count the rebuilt -- and soon to be demolished -- Yankee Stadium); compared to Wrigley and Fenway, though, Dodger Stadium is shiny and new. Both of the old yards, then, serve as baseball time machines, the only two of their kind. But which is better?

The ChoiceWhich do I prefer? I'm not saying quite yet, and in fact I don't know that I know, yet. In the interest of full disclosure, though, I probably should mention that I once saw 81 games at Fenway in one season. And with that, let's pick our favorite old ballpark!
