It's a thing of beauty to me. Depending on how you count, that is 43 venues, and all 30 teams. The italics means that I also visited the newer stadium of that team, and the asterisk simply denotes multiple visits to the same stadium. Mets fans will like this--my first baseball game was a Yankee game, when Yankee Stadium was being remodeled in the mid 70s, and they called Shea home. I didn't get to a Yankee game or the Stadium for another 10 years.

Like I said in my last post, it has been fun, and it's been awesome talking to others along the way doing the same thing. With MLB done now, I can focus on getting to the last dozen or so NFL stadiums I haven't seen...
