We caught home games at Tigers, Carp and Giants and I'd definitely give the latter a pass the next time. My take, and this is purely a personal thing, I'd rather see an awful team play at an outdoor stadium than a great team in a dome. I've seen sports in horrid weather growing up in NY but I wouldn't want it any other way than being out in the elements. That said, there aren't many open stadiums other than Osaka and Hiroshima.... I know the Swallows play outside but that might be it.
