Ballpark Review Roundup

At Mop-Up Duty we have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to jet-set across the 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 now-defunct retro park thrown in.  Of course, you can always check the archives of our ballpark reviews to see every stadium we have reviewed by multiple writers and stadium-related offshoots.

Major League Ballparks

1. Petco Park
2. Dodger Stadium
3. Oriole Park at Camden Yards
4. AT&T Park
5. Great American Ballpark
6. Comerica Park
7. Wrigley Field
8. Chase Field
9. Progressive Field
10. Marlins Park
11. SkyDome/Rogers Centre
12. Angel Stadium
13. Old Yankee Stadium
14. Exhibition Stadium
15. 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 experience, all things considered. Petco has the edge in that regard.  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.

Dodger Stadium

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 for the total experience.

Minor League Ballparks

1. Bright House Field
2. Labatt Park

International Ballparks

1. Estadio Latinoamericano
2. Estadio Santiago “Changa” Mederos
3. Estadio Beto Avila

    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!
