Magazine says see Coors Field
Mens Fitness praises Rockies home park, nine others
The folks at Men's Fitness magazine love their beer. And they love an economical evening at a fine ballpark.
For those reasons, the magazine's editors ranked Coors Field as one of baseball's 10 big league parks worth seeing this summer.
The magazine's baseball preview features training regimens of Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett and White Sox speedster Jerry Owens, forecasts the 2008 season and takes a trip to the 10 favorite ballparks.
Men's Fitness says Coors and Miller Park in Milwaukee each deserve the designation, "The House that Beer Built." It especially enjoyed the Sandlot Brewery for its atmosphere and, of course, its selection of microbrews.
It also saw Coors as a good place for some inexpensive romance, lauding tickets in the Rockpile section that give fans a picturesque view of the sun setting behind majestic mountains.
It also highlighted the purple row of seats, which is exactly one mile above sea level.
The list also consists of Yankee Stadium, PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston, Camden Yards in Baltimore, Miller Park, Safeco Field in Seattle, Progressive Field in Cleveland and new Nationals Park in Washington.
