Chase Field never lists very high on "best ballpark" lists, usually because it's a bit weird. Not Marlins Stadium weird, but it's not like all the other retro jewel-box ballparks that were built after Camden Yards opened. Of course, if the Diamondbacks had built a retro stadium, they would have been mocked for in-authenticity, as evidenced by the Astros removing their centerfield hill.
Chase Field gets compared to a lot of things, but it's not usually a ballpark. Let's run down all things people think Chase Field looks like (as found through a thorough Google search):
- A prison
- A hangar
- A warehouse
- A giant toaster
- A drawbridge
- A big cardboard box
- Disneyland of baseball (???)
- Dodger Stadium East
Ouch, that last one is a sick burn. I know Chase Field has its problems, but it's not that bad, is it?
