The Oakland Coliseum

 

It’s actually named after some stupid company, so I call it by its old name.  Either way, the place is really awful for baseball.  It’s a football stadium, with a baseball diamond squeezed in.  The only atmosphere is provided by the fans themselves, who are fanatical and passionate and loud.  They orchestrate chants and wave flags and do all sorts of rituals.

In spite of it being an awful baseball stadium, I found it interesting photographically.  For captions and full-screen, click on any slide.
