Best ballpark skylines?

but I still think Whataburger is a hilariously bad corporate name,

I can see that but it's good eats and they are all over the place in Texas so maybe I'm just used to it.

For me, University of Phoenix Stadium in Phoenix but not named for Phoenix or a university in Phoenix is the single worst stadium name.

True, forgot about that one...

Maybe it's because I'm from New England and I don't get the whole "culture" surrounding Whataburger in Texas.

PNC looks really nice, but for my money the view from AT&T Park just can't be beat. You see the bay, a few ports, and a good chunk of the east bay as well. Only park where you can watch the game and sail boat races at the same time.

Dodger Stafium has an absolutely breathtaking view. Nicest part of going to a Dodgers game, by far.

Wrigley Field as well has an awesome view.

PNC park is probably my favorite. Another one of the great views in baseball is seeing the sunset over the Rocky Mountains if you're sitting down the first baseline at Coors Field. Unfortunately the ball park is facing away from the view of the Denver skyline, with good reason. Although it makes for a great view if you're getting a mid-game snack.

And Im sure someone from Texas would not get the culture behind Dunkin Donuts

that's awesome, my favorite of the non-skyscrapper views so far

If you like ocean views check out Carroll Land Stadium on Point Loma in San Diego.

So would home run balls go end up in the water?

Eventually; the stadium is high on a cliff, so the ball would have to travel a long way to reach the Pacific.

I actually was at Point Loma Nazarine University. Long story I won't bore you.

- Love the lighting set up.

The lights in Brooklyn are unique

You could probably answer my question. What the heck is that thing in the right of the picture. Is it part of the Amusement Park? Like a gigantic swing?

That's the historic parachute jump at Coney Island:
