Congratulations Sammy Sosa

Last night, Sammy Sosa hit a home run in his record 43rd stadium. Sammy's homer put him one park ahead of Fred McGriff and Ken Griffey Jr. These feats were possible because all three players played in both the American and National League and many stadiums where the trio hit homers in their early years have since been torn down and replaced by new ballparks. As a tribute to Sammy, i have decided to compile a list of all the stadiums where I have watched a ball game.

1. Milwaukee County Stadium. Milwaukee, WI
2. Miller Park. Milwaukee, WI
3. Old Comiskey Park. Chicago, IL
4. US Cellular Field. Chicago, IL
5. Wrigley Field. Chicago, IL
6. Pohlman Field. Beloit, WI (home of the Beloit Snappers - A)
7. Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Minneapolis, MN
8. Midway Stadium. Saint Paul, MN (home of the Saint Paul Saints - I)
9. Franklin Rogers Park. Mankato, MN (home of the Mankato Moondogs - NCAA/NWL)
10. Dick Putz Field. Saint Cloud, MN (home of the Saint Cloud River Bats - NCAA/NWL)
11. Copeland Park. LaCrosse, WI (home of the LaCrosse Loggers - NCAA/NWL)
12. Siebert Field. Minneapolis, MN (home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers - NCAA)
13. Tiger Stadium. Detroit, MI
14. Comerica Park. Detroit, MI
15. Fenway Park. Boston, MA
16. Yankee Stadium. Bronx, NY
17. Shea Stadium. Flushing, NY
18. RFK Stadium. Washington, DC
19. Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Baltimore, MD
20. Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia, PA
21. Dodger Stadium. Los Angeles, CA
22. Great American Ballpark. Cincinnati, OH
23. Phitzner Stadium, Woodbridge, VA (home of the Potomac Nationals - A)
24. Busch Stadium II. Saint Louis, MO

Looks like I should pass Sammy's record this summer. Granted, what he is doing is a lot harder than what I'm doing.
