Top 10 Best MLB Ballparks Ranked 2018

The game of baseball is America’s pastime and it is one of the most popular sports in the world. The United States is also home to some of the most iconic ballparks in the world and there is no doubt that each stadium has its own unique history. From the East Coast to the West Coast, there is always a new ballpark to check out and one that you can check off of your bucket list. With that being said, let’s take a look at 10 ballparks that every baseball fan should visit.

10. Safeco Field: Seattle Mariners

Although this park has only been open for about 18 years, it’s one of the most picturesque scenes in all of baseball. The retractable roof doesn’t give you a headache and you can see Centurylink Field in the distance. With the Mariners making a comeback after being cellar dwellers for a number of years, it’s a good time to go and check out a beautiful field in the Pacific Northwest.

9. Comerica Park: Detroit Tigers

You may be asking how could anything in Detroit be nice. Well, let me explain. Comerica Park is unique in its own way. The seats are at street level and it feels like the park itself is underground due to its configuration. The field shows baseball from a completely different perspective and it provides a clear view of the Detroit skyline in the outfield. It’s also just a short walk from Ford Field and Little Caesars Arena.

8. Dodger Stadium: Los Angeles Dodgers

There is no mistaking that this park belongs in Los Angeles. Some of the biggest moments in baseball history have happened in Dodger Stadium and one of the greatest voices in the game sat in the press box for decades. The spotlight is on you when you come into the shadows of Hollywood and it just adds even more excitement to the game. The Dodgers are a great team to watch and the city of Los Angeles is beautiful as well.

7. Kaufman Stadium: Kansas City Royals

Kaufman Stadium has stood the test of time for stadiums built in the 1970’s. Some of them would be beaten to a bloody pulp or torn down at this point but this one has remained beautiful. The unique crown scoreboard makes Kaufman Stadium one of the most recognizable parks in all of baseball. Regardless of the Royals perform during a season, making the trip to Kansas City will be well worth it. I mean seriously, baseball and Kansas City barbeque. What could be better?

6. Yankee Stadium

The ‘New” Yankee Stadium isn’t quite as iconic as the “Old” Yankee Stadium but it is still something you need to see. Yankee Stadium is a living museum with Monument Park and number of other famous events that are depicted throughout the park. You get to see an iconic team take the field every time you go and not to mention it hosts NYCFC’s home matches and the Pinstripe Bowl every December.

5. AT&T Park: San Francisco Giants

The iconic Coca-Cola bottle in left field, the tall brick wall in right field, McCovey Cove in right field with boaters trying to catch a home run, and the beautiful city of San Francisco just makes AT&T Park one of the most beautiful and scenic ballparks in all of baseball. The Bay Area is a perfect setting for baseball and every time I see the Giants on TV at home, it just looks like an absolutely perfect day or night. God bless California.

4. Oriole Park At Camden Yards: Baltimore Orioles

Tucked inside Baltimore, Camden Yards has an extremely cozy feel to it. Yes, the Orioles are absolutely atrocious but there is no reason why you shouldn’t go see a game at this beautiful park. Away teams typically invade Camden Yards because of extremely affordable ticket prices and as an excuse to watch their team play in a historic venue. It is truly one of the best stadiums in all of baseball.

3. PNC Park: Pittsburgh Pirates

The Yinzers love their Buccos and their stadium is absolutely beautiful. On the banks of the Alleghany River, PNC Park has one of the best views in the game. The Pittsburgh skyline is alive and well in the outfield and there is a sense of excitement for what’s to come after the addition of Chris Archer. PNC Park could host a playoff game in the near future and the black and gold faithful will be ready to invade the beautiful park with flying colors.

2. Fenway Park: Boston Red Sox

Boston is probably my favorite city that isn’t New York and that may come as a surprise. Fenway Park is one of the most well-known and historic parks in the world Constructed in 1912, the iconic venue has become a living cathedral for baseball and its features make it stand out even more. The Green Monster, The Pesky Pole, Lansdowne Street, and just the old school feel makes Fenway Park one of a kind.

1. Wrigley Field: Chicago Cubs

Over 100 years later and this beauty is still standing tall. Wrigley Field should be in at least the top two of every baseball fan’s ballpark bucket list without any sort of discussion. The organ music, the ivy, celebrities singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” and just the gameday atmosphere at Wrigley Field is second to none. Regardless of whether the Cubs are good or bad, a game at Wrigley will never disappoint.
