re: Writer Mark Zuckerman ranks all 30 MLB ballparks

I think there is some bias against Turner in that because a new stadium is coming.

Don't get me wrong, it's nothing special, but there are about 10 in the middle, of which Turner is one, which could be pretty interchangeable.

I've been to #1 & #29 twice. He's definately got the spread right between those two.

People always bitch about tals hill. And how it's a "accident waiting to happen".


Yet in 14 years....... No accident.

I love Petco Park. Just wish they'd actually give a damn about putting a great product on the field. Pig turds on expensive china are still pig turds.

Agree about petco being highly rated. Great experience and beautiful area. Also helps that it's like 65 degrees for night games in August.

Petco is amazing, Enron (when i went) was breathtaking, Wrigley was so nosalgic it was fun, even though i hate the Cubs. Safeco is pretty sweet.

going to At&T later this month and hopefully hit the dodgers and angels before i leave california this year.

i really want to watch a game at PNC.

based on my limited experience, AT&T should be number 1. absolutely fantastic baseball venue with a dedicated, passionate fan base actively cheering on their team. I had so much fun there.

I rate it below only because of the heat. in decent weather, it's better, but in the Texas heat, it's almost unbearable.

They've been calling Tal's Hill an accident waiting to happen for 14 years now. Still waiting.

And PNC is awesome. After the Friday night game there is usually a huge fireworks display over the river.

Wrigley #4, LOL
The Cell sucks though. Built the wrong stadium in the wrong place in town. (projects have been torn down; but you got two obligatory stereotypes in their Mr Writer).

As many have said, PNC is awesome. I recommend sitting anywhere along the 3rd base line side of the stadium. The view of downtown, especially at night, is phenomenal.

24. TURNER FIELD, Atlanta
Opened: 1997
Capacity: 49,586
Comment: I often wondered what the lifespan of the modern ballpark would be. The multipurpose facilities of the ’60s and ’70s survived roughly 30-to-40 years before being torn down. Will the new parks become obsolete so soon as well? In Atlanta, the answer is yes. Despite being less than 20 years old, Turner Field already is being replaced, with the Braves building a brand-new stadium in the suburbs set to open in 2017. What’s wrong with the current ballpark? Well, it was originally built for the Olympics, so it does feel too big and a little un-baseball-like. And as is the case in several middle-of-the-road ballparks listed above, it has no real defining characteristic. Unfortunately, the initial renderings of the new park don’t blow you away, either, so the Braves’ next home may be nothing more than a newer version of their current one.

Yeah, he pretty much says it's too big, doesn't feel "like a baseball stadium" and then shits all over the new stadium before anything is finalized when it will be smaller and more of a "ballpark".

Definitely sounds butthurt we're getting a new stadium.

Without clicking on the link, Oakland Coliseum better be LAST. That is not negotiable. Biggest shithole of a stadium I have ever been in. The Trop in TB should be bottom 3...that place had ZERO atmosphere and just didn't feel like a ballpark.

San Fran's park (AT&T or Pac Bell or whatever the hell they call it) better be in the top 3. That place is gorgeous and the one time I have been there I was lucky enough to be there on a sunny 72 degree day. It was a sight to behold. Pittsburgh's park should be solid Top 3-5 also.

Globe Life Park is way, way, way under-ranked. It is hot, but not any more so than Atlanta, St Louis, Washington, etc... One of my favorite places to catch a game.

I agree having it in the bottom 5 is a joke.
