We traveled to Denver's Coors Field on 4/15/06 to watch a Rockies game. The stadium is one of the newer ones in baseball and is a great place to watch a game. The seats are close to the field, they offer every type of food and the jumbotron really helps you follow the game with lineups, video and replays. We got $9 seats in the right field second deck and the view was still great. The stadium offers $4 seats in "The Rockpile" -- dead center field that also would be good seats. Parking is a few blocks from the stadium however, so arrive early and be ready to pay $7 to $10.

The Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-6 which also added to the experience. The game was held on a perfect night starting at 6:05 pm so we had both stadium experiences, under sunny skies and under the lights.

My perfect event -- carnival food, bright lights, new venue, energetic crowd and sports

There is nothing like a major league baseball field
