Favorite Minor League Stadium/Game
Went to my first Tennessee Smokies game last week with the family. Was nice, but I feel like the experience/stadium could've been better. My favorite minor league game I've been to is the Montgomery Biscuits. Are there any that are a must do?

I enjoy the Biloxi shuckers games. Walk to the casino after the game.

Smokies stadium is kinda shitty and just randomly placed in the middle of nowhere off I40. The only thing near it is a Bass Pro Shop. They are, however, supposed to be building a new stadium in downtown Knoxville

The Smokies are working on plans/approval for a new downtown Knoxville stadium... I'm excited for it, should be a much better atmosphere and more convenient for locals.

Memphis has a really cool stadium and good fan support in the heart of downtown right next to the Peabody, Rendezvous and Beale St. It's definitely a good experience.

Durham Bulls stadium is pretty nice for minor league. Has a restaurant/bar in the outfield where you can eat and drink on the patio without buying a ticket. Also have a brewery housed in the stadium and a lot to do within walking distance.

The Indians AA team plays in Akron. The city itself is a shithole, but Canal Park is beautiful:

The first 5 seasons or so the Zephyrs played at Zephyr Field after they moved there from UNO. Really up until Katrina.

It was arguably the best minor league stadium in the country at the time, had the largest scoreboard in the minors, and the only ballpark with a pool and hot tub.

I’ve seen games in 70 different ballparks. Honestly, it’s tough to beat the one in my hometown. Whataburger Field, home of the Corpus Christi Hooks, is an excellent place to catch a game.

I just went to a Single A South Bend Cubs game at Four Winds Field. Pretty cool. Apparently the Cubs owner has poured a ton of money into it and the surrounding areas.




Pensacola is tops for me. Fantastic customer service, great views and very good baseball.

I have no clue how you put Rome in the top 10 MiLB stadium experiences.

It’s pretty nondescript and showing its age these days.

Well its out of 16 current stadiums that Ive been to and not all of minor league baseball.

The stadium is easy to get to. Huge parking lot. Easy to get out of. The stadium is hardly full unless you have a major leaguer rehabbing. Ushers and the rest of the workers are nice and dont care where you sit. Tickets are cheap and concessions are reasonable.

If you are looking for a grand minor league experience with restaurants and bars near and lazy rivers and huge playgrounds inside the stadium, this isnt the place, but if you want a good, inexpensive experience built around actual baseball, then I choose Rome over a lot of places.

Huntington Park in Columbus Ohio has won Ballpark of the Year a few times since being built, including the same year the new Yankee stadium opened. Its a great venue and the premier venue in all of AAA in my honest opinion.



I would also recommend Toledo Mudhens. Their park is pretty remarkable too!!

There’s a lot of great minor league stadiums, and I love Huntington Park in Columbus, but for Single A there might not be a park better than Parkview Field in Fort Wayne. IN. It’s a bit of an emerging city too, which is rare for Indiana.

re: Favorite Minor League Stadium/Game
I can tell you what the worst stadium in minor league baseball is and that is the AA Richmond Flying Squirrels stadium. I went to a last Friday night and what a dump that stadium is and it is located in a less than desirable area of town. It was built in 1985 and doesn't even look or feel like a baseball stadium.
