Explore baseball’s opening day in Google Earth

Today is the opening day of the 2012 baseball season in the US, and Google is showing off a bunch of great tools to help you enjoy it.
The best is a new video that they’ve created that shows off the various Major League Baseball stadiums in 3D inside of Google Earth:


You can also explore those stadiums using this collection from EarthSwoop, which flies you around the stadiums via the Google Earth Plug-in.
Google also encourages you to use Google Maps for the weather, Navigation (for Android) to get the games, and StreetView to tour the outside of the stadiums. Read all about these great features over on the Google Lat Long Blog.

  1. While most parks are shown, I’ve noticed 2 ballparks still don’t have 3D models shown on the earth: the new Marlins Park, of course, and also Target Field in Minneapolis. That’s been around since 2010, yet Downtown Minneapolis’ imagery is still from 2002, which I find rather unusual since most major U.S. cities have updated imagery from the past two years.
