Distance to Major League Parks (from Halifax)

Inspired by my trip to Toronto to see the Blue Jays next month, I have compiled this list of distances (by road kms) to Major League parks.  All distances are calculated from the Citadel in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Looking at this list there were a few surprises in regarding to where certain parks appear on the list.  For example, the Blue Jays are the seventh nearest team to Halifax.  Los Angeles to closer than Seattle?

Distances listed by kilometres, time is also included.  Times higher than 24 hours are estimates due to Google limitations.

  1. Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox: 1063 km or 10:25

  3. Yankee Stadium, New York Yankees: 1378 km or 13:25

As the crow flies (to put west coast distances in perspective):

  1. Halifax to Willemstad, Curacao: 3676 km
  2. Halifax to Dublin, Ireland: 4156 km
  3. Halifax to Vancouver, BC: 4434 km

  5. Halifax to Los Angeles, CA: 4781 km
  6. Halifax to Berlin: 5433 km

Due to the vastness of the North American continent, we are closer (by air) to Rome, Italy than we are to some MLB parks (by road).
