The 5 Best Baseball Stadiums In The United States
In the spring and summer, you still can’t beat a breezy night spent at the ballpark with a few beers and a hotdog . Each home field is unique unto itself, but which one of North America’s 30 Major League Baseball stadiums is the absolute best place to watch a game, which park offers the best overall experience: the stadium, the grub, and the on-field product?
Here’s our list of the Best USA Baseball Stadiums:
5. Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Baltimore Orioles haven’t maintained their status as an “upper crust” baseball team for some time now, but that definitely can’t be said about the stadium they play in. While the stadium is considered a bit of an “old-timer” since it was renovated in 1992 (which really isn’t all that long ago), it’s still one of the best game day experiences in the majors. What really helps is the fact that the stadium, and the restaurants around it, boast some of the best game day eats you’ll find in any city.
4. Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York.
It might not have the same history and lore of the old Yankees Stadium, but this is still a place for true baseball fans to make a pilgrimage at some point in their life. The Yanks have an impressive home winning percentage in their new park (.610), and Aaron Judge and Co. have helped the team draw over 87% capacity. Among the crowds, expect a decent number of meandering domestic and international tourists, often more interested in exploring the legendary home of the Bronx Bombers than hustling to their seats to watch the game.
3. Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California.
The third-oldest stadium in the majors, and the home to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Dodger stadium has now hosted nine World Series, site of a pitching legacy that spans from Koufax to Valenzuela to Kershaw, home of the Dodger Dog. There’s also great food to be found in many places, both inside and outside the stadium. With a capacity of 56,000, Dodger Stadium is by far the largest stadium in the majors, meaning tickets are plentiful. Parking lots open two hours before game time and gates open 90 minutes prior, which usually allows you to catch the opposing team’s batting practice.
2. Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois.
You know a stadium is iconic when a plant that grows on the side of it — the green ivy in the outfield — is so recognized. The classic-versus-retro baseball stadium debate is endless, but if you’ve ever spent an afternoon at Wrigley you know that no modern ballpark can duplicate what fans of the Chicago Cubs have been able to enjoy for decades. Long before the team became a World Series champion, this was always one of the most coveted sports tickets in the Windy City.
1. The Winner is …….Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
The home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park is where baseball’s tradition meets its newest innovations, making it one of the unique game-day experiences that any baseball fan must enjoy. Between the loyal fans, the singing of “Sweet Caroline,” the presence of the Green Monster, and the fans walking up and down the streets before and after the game, there isn’t a better baseball experience to be had in the country. That’s probably a major reason why the team boasts 820 consecutive sellouts, without counting all the fans who can watch the game at the bar under center field – how cool is that! PS my dad told me to give it the top spot, what could i do 🙂
