Taking Back the Ballparks - Dodgers voting thread
  by SoSH U at work

This one’s simple enough. The existing name, or it’s long-time alt handle.

A) Chavez Ravine
B) Dodger Stadium

Next up: The new name grates.

Taking Back the Ballparks - Los Angeles Dodgers
  by SoSH U at work

Another older gem. Even before I made my maiden visit two weeks ago, it was a ballpark I could identify immediately the moment the game was turned on, even absent any Dodger blue or the guy in the Ecuadorian* straw hat who used to stand behind home plate with the JUGS Gun.

The layout, once more ...

The Final Push
  by Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington

Join Jim’s OOTP League

Taking Back the Ballparks - Toronto Blue Jays
  by SoSH U at work

We leave the states to visit our friends to the north. Canada’s team began play in the futuristic SkyDome in 1989, though it got its current Rogers Centre name, complete with Canadian spelling, in 2005.

It looks like we’re taking this one to the river. Here are the choices.

If you prefer Riverfront*, which the betting money believes will be the selection, please choose the follow-up you prefer. Some of the stated names in the nominating thread included Riverfront Stadium, Riverfront Park, ...
