Hit a Homerun With Cheapflights.com's List of Top 10 Cities to Catch a Baseball Game

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) -  Now that the 2010 Major League Baseball (MLB) season is finally underway, it's the perfect time to plan and book a trip to one of the game's great ballparks. Cheapflights.com, the online travel resource for finding fabulous airfare deals and helpful travel information, has put together a list of the best cities to see the pros play America's favorite pastime.

"With many baseball fans here at Cheapflights, it was just a matter of time before we put together a travel article on baseball," said Andrea Mooney, Cheapflights content editor. "Traveling to ballparks is a time-honored tradition for fans of the game. However, the ballparks are not the only draw -- many of the baseball cities we include in the list are also homes to historical sites and interesting places worth visiting. Our Destination Guides are useful planning tools to find out more about these cities and to help plan a fun spring or summer getaway."

Below is a glimpse at five of the cities to make our list and you can see the full ten on the Cheapflights.com's blog at http://news.cheapflights.com/2010/04/top-10-cities-to-catch-a-baseball-game/

Baltimore, Maryland: Oriole Park at Camden Yards
One of the most highly praised ballparks in the nation; Camden Yards has a retro design that hails back to the days of the Great Bambino. Its "good old days" feel stems from more than just décor -- the park is a mere two blocks from Babe Ruth's birthplace, and the site of his father's old café is now better known as center field of Oriole Park. Search and compare cheap flights to Baltimore

New York, New York: Citi Field and Yankee Stadium
In a city where two teams compete, your game-time selection boils down to loyalty: Yankees or Mets? The Mets' Citi Field resides in Queens, where the 41,800-capactiy stadium made a smooth transition from Shea Stadium. The Yankees got new digs too, thanks to Rudy Giuliani, who ordered a new park to be instated in the Bronx, where a Red Sox-loving worker buried a David Ortiz jersey in the cement, and was made to retrieve it. Both ballparks celebrated their first opening days in 2009. Search and compare cheap flights to New York

Boston, Massachusetts: Fenway Park
Opened in 1912, Fenway Park is the oldest MLB stadium currently in use. Some may call it old and cramped, but Red Sox Nation knows it as the haven where the Curse of the Great Bambino was lifted. Among the alluring crowds of Kenmore Square and the relentless height of the Green Monster, Fenway Park remains a Boston favorite. Search and compare cheap flights to Boston

Toronto, Ontario: Rogers Centre
Thought you could only catch an MLB game in the States? Think again. While Rogers Centre also hosts football games and conventions, it's best known as the home of the Toronto Blue Jays for twelve years -- and for being the first stadium with a fully-retractable motorized roof.

San Francisco, California: AT&T Park
Barry Bonds likes this place -- and he should. The former Giants star hit his 756th home run, breaking Hank Aaron's record here. The park resides in Willie Mays Plaza, right on Mission Bay, and won the 2008 Sports Facility of the Year Award in 2008. Aside from its waterside locale, the park is also known for its bold fans who wave rubber chickens when pitchers intentionally walk the Giants' hardest hitters.
