This site has satellite images for 28 of the 30 parks used in Major League Baseball. There are 29 listed, but a satellite image of Busch Stadium is a picture of something that doesn't exist.

And for some reason, Miller Park isn't available and when I checked Google Earth, that part of Milwaukee isn't available in the necessary resolution.

Go figure. Maybe Miller Park has a Nike missile silo underneath.

Miller Park is not available because the Defazio/Pheeny documents are hidden beneath the pitcher's mound and great forces are in motion to shield them from ever being discovered.

In fact, those forces have reached out and olbiterated your link.

Beware.

Sorry, I left out one letter. So the link should work now.

Hmmm . . . dark forces switched around the b and the l in obliterated in my comment. Must decode!

Was that Nike missile crack always there? I think I'm going mad.

In grade school camp we hiked up to a defunct nike site in the Santa Monica mountains. At the time it seemed very cool, but now it seems like it should have freaked me out.

If you look at RFK, you can see Eastern high where my kid plays winter indoor soccer on saturday mornings just to the due west (look for the track and then the large building just south).

yes I am really procrastinating something I do not want to do today. it's sad, I know.

you'll also see that they've got RFK set for soccer, not baseball.

Hey, if it's before the time Apple released video iPODs, I don't remember it!
