The first of this crop, Camden Yards in Baltimore, was original and was/is great (although may have been a copy of something I'm unaware of in the minor leagues, it was at least the first of its kind among MLB stadia). I can even give a pass to Coors Field, which followed. But now they're popping up like this everywhere and the designs, in many cases, are just dumb. Citi field is obviously retro to Ebbets Field but how does that form make any sense in the middle of parking lots in Flushing Meadows, Queens? Ebbets field's form was dictated by the street grid in its location in Brooklyn. Same as many others of its day, including OYS, Fenway Park, and Wrigley Field. The retro NYS is the biggest disappointment of all! Given that tearing down the Cathedral was apparently unavoidable (a function of pure greed), at least Steinbrenner could have taken the approach, consistent with his ego, of creating the greatest 21st century stadium on earth. While NYS has all the amenities, it is far from the greatest stadium, let alone the greatest baseball stadium, from a design perspective. I haven't been to the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, but I sure think that was Jerry Jones' approach and from everything I've heard, he pretty much accomplished it, for less money than NYS, albeit at cheaper Texas construction costs!
