To Oakland with Alex and Kay to see the Oakland A’s play the Baltimore Orioles play. Arriving in Oakland early we visited the Oakland Museum of California. There are three museums in one: natural history, history, and art. We only had time for natural history. We peeked into the History museum and it looked very intriguing. I hope to get back to see history. But here are some of the things we did see.

With the addition of Oakland, my MLB stadium list now stands at 11 (not including stadiums I’ve visited, but have now been torn down – Cleveland Muni and the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome):

Angel Stadium of Anaheim Anaheim, California Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Chase Field Phoenix, Arizona Arizona Diamondbacks
Fenway Park Boston, Massachusetts Boston Red Sox
Kauffman Stadium Kansas City, Missouri Kansas City Royals
Miller Park Milwaukee, Wisconsin Milwaukee Brewers
Minute Maid Park Houston, Texas Houston Astros
Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum 8/13/17 Oakland, California Oakland Athletics
Progressive Field Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Indians
Rogers Centre Toronto, Ontario Toronto Blue Jays
Safeco Field 6/24/17 Seattle, Washington Seattle Mariners
Target Field 6/15/17 Minneapolis, Minnesota Minnesota Twins

There is no comparison to the quality of the Oakland Coliseum – it’s the worst of any stadium I’ve visited. Phoenix Chase Field is the Taj Mahal in comparison.
