PNC really is awesome. I think Busch Stadium is better than 17th.

it's an average ballpark, like Nationals Ballpark. Nothing really that cool or unique about it

What the cards did beyond left center this off season probably adds a ton to the gameday experience. I'm not sure if you can count it though since it's not technically part of the stadium (although he counts the rooftops at Wrigley).

Dodger stadium looks like a hole on tv to me but admittedly I've never been.

I was completely underwhelmed with it when I visited there last summer.

I've been 3 times. Great ballpark. Going to Pittsburgh for work next week. Hoping to catch another game.

Busch is a step above the last cookie cutter stadium, but there's nothing super special about it. Hoping to make it up there for a game in the next year or so.

I think it's ranked very fairly on this list based on the parks I've visited.

So excited to visit Petco in a few weeks and the Phillies' park in a few months.

He has basically the same complaints about Busch as he has about nationals park. But Busch has rooftops and a much better center field view. At very least it should move up one spot.

The Trop really isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

25. CITI FIELD, New York Opened: 2009 Capacity: 41,922 Comment: Let’s make one thing clear: Citi Field is so much better than Shea Stadium, which was the single worst place on Earth. And I don’t just say that because I once got food poisoning in the media dining room. (Though that certainly didn’t help.) The problems with Citi Field, however, are many. It’s too big. It’s too dark. It’s too confusing (you can’t walk all the way around the main concourse, you have to take stairs or escalators up and then back down). And the original outfield dimensions were so bad, the Mets wound up moving the fences in after only a couple of seasons of play. It’s a completely contrived ballpark out in the middle of Flushing Meadows, where the crowds are drowned out by the planes taking off from nearby LaGuardia Airport every couple of minutes. Very much a missed opportunity for the Mets.


This is my biggest gripe about JerryWorld. To meet my buddy in the other end zone made me feel like a rat in a maze that had done gone smell blind.

I probably haven't been to nearly as many parks as some of you guys, but I guess I just didn't think there were 16 parks that are better. PNC and Petco are definitely much nicer.

I like Camden Yards. There is a lot of standing room in right field near that B&O Warehouse (or whatever it's called).

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.


Ouch.
