Ballpark Review Roundup

All of our ballpark reviews in one easy-to-read ranked list. So far we have 17 ballparks... and counting!

At Mop-Up Duty we have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to jet-set across the western hemisphere and check out numerous baseball stadiums. In case you missed one, a few, or all of them, below is a collection of the ballparks that we have reviewed during our history.  I’ve ranked them in order from favourite to least-favourite (the ballparks I have been to personally) with a couple of now-defunct retro parks thrown in.

Major League Ballparks Ranked

1. Petco Park
2. Dodger Stadium
3. PNC Park
4. Oriole Park at Camden Yards
5. AT&T Park
6. Great American Ballpark
7. Comerica Park
8. Wrigley Field
9. Chase Field
10. Progressive Field
11. SkyDome/Rogers Centre
12. Marlins Park
13. Angel Stadium
14. Old Yankee Stadium
15. Tropicana Field
16. Exhibition Stadium
17. Oakland Coliseum

It was a difficult decision to choose between Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, and Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium.  What it came down to was the total fan experience, all things considered. But when it comes to baseball at its core, there is no better theatre to watch the drama unfold than the home of the Dodgers.

I also had difficulty with ranking the Rogers Centre vis-a-vis Angel Stadium.  The fact that Angel Stadium has a grass field is what keeps it close.  That being said, I have to give a slight edge to the Rogers Centre – again, for the total fan experience.

    You guys haven’t been to “my” park, Citizens Bank Park? Voted best ballpark food in the MLB by the Food network and such a neat area in the outfield called Ashburn alley. Would love to see a review sometime. Going to Camden Yards today for my first ever Phillies road trip!
