Thrillist Ranks MLB Ballparks
Thrillist rates MLB Ball parks... Look who is the second worst in the MLB according to them.
I made a comment about the parks I visited....
29. Yankee Stadium
New York Yankees
Perhaps no ballpark better represents its city than the new-ish Yankee Stadium. Big, impressive, and talked about in the national media ad nauseum. Once you get there, though, you realize it's way too big, overpriced, and, well, not that much fun. While the Yanks have an impressive home winning percentage in their new park (.610), a lackluster 2015 dropped them to almost dead-last in our rankings. Unimpressive food options and a cavernous feel also make this place a... sorryboutthis... Bronx Bomb.
Do you guys feel this way about Citi Field?
27. Citi Field
New York Mets
Yes, it’s an upgrade from Shea, sure. But just replacing something that's worn out doesn’t make it great on its own. Which is definitely the case with Citi, where even a center field Shake Shack and an NL pennant haven’t done much to help the Mets' attendance, which thanks to the playoff push just broke 74% of capacity.
Been here. Loved being indoors in the Humidity, but its a weird "feeling" place.
26. Marlins Park
Heading here next month....
23. Petco Park
San Diego Padres
San Diego, CA
Worst Fan experience I have had. The Staff was obnoxious and rude.
21. Turner Field
I felt this park was nothing special.
20. Nationals Park
Another nothing special ballpark....
13. Citizens Bank Park
Loved everything about Coor's Field. Had a great time there and was so relaxing. Great views of the field and good food.
9. Coors Field
I'll be checking this place out in a couple of months
8. Miller Park
Loved Wrigley. You could feel the history there. Don't know how much it ha changed since renovations.
Loved PNC as much as I loved Coors field. And they have Primanti Bros. Sandwiches
5. PNC Park
I really can't disagree with Camden being this high on their list. It's the Oldest newest ballpark and is just set up awesomely.
3. Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Fenway and AT&T Ballpark round out the top two, I haven't been to either... You can check out the full article
