So The First thing you might ask me is why are you ranking the stadiums? Well I am ranking these MLB Stadiums because I want to tell you what stadiums should make your bucket list. Now some Diehard baseball fans wishes are to see all 30 ballparks, they might regret after seeing the bottom 5. I have based this off of looks and watching videos from each ballpark looking at how fun it is, let's dive into this list.
30. Tropicana Field-Tampa Bay Rays Opened: 1990
Basically on every person's list Tropicana Field is bottom three, for me it is dead last. Tropicana Field was built 3 decades ago and it has never been decent. The quality of the field is terrible and there are absolutely no fun attraction in the stadium. This place is a dump and also the worst stadium in Major League Baseball.
29. Oakland Coliseum- Oakland Athletics Opened: 1966
This Stadium is also near the bottom in everybody's list. This was also the home of Oakland's Pro Football team, the raiders. The Raiders moved to Las Vegas this year to play in the beautiful Allegiant Stadium. And Sadly the athletics are gonna have to stay in the awful Oakland Coliseum, the quality of the field is also pretty bad as well. One good thing about this stadium is that way up in the center field seats, it says the word athletics and has all the athletics retired jersey numbers on the sides of it. It is not dead last but it will join Tropicana Field in the F Tier.
28. Rogers Center-Blue Jays Opened: 1989
The Rogers Center is not as bad as The Trop and the Coliseum but is also pretty terrible. The Rogers Center is also the name of the Vancouver Canucks arena in the NHL. When the roof opens at the stadium it is honestly a pretty decent stadium. But A major takeaway from the stadium is that when the roof is closed it looks super ugly and boring. There is nothing awful about this stadium, it is just super boring. One Reason why this stadium is higher than Tropicana Field and The Oakland Coliseum is that they have a hotel in Left Center Field. Aaron Judge in 2018 against the blue jays in batting practice scorched one into left and hit a hotel. Other than the Hotel nothing shines about this stadium.
27. Guaranteed Rate Field-White Sox Opened:1991
Now Guaranteed Rate Field is not awful, it is just boring. No fun attractions are in the stadium. Also I have no idea what those things are at the top of the Big-Screen in Center Field. They are completely unnecessary and they is no reason for them to be there. That Was something that made me put this stadium at 27. The Stadium is not bad, it just has boring all over it. But there are 26 more stadiums that beat this one out.
26. Progressive Field- Indians Opened:1994
Progressive Field is not bad at all it is just weak compared to the top 25. Cleveland hosted the 2019 Home Run Derby and All Star Game. Nothing stands out in the stadium but this is the first stadium with a great skyline in the back. That skyline puts this stadium a bit closer. If they could make this stadium a bit more unique than it would be higher but it is just a boring stadium. 26 is all I could do sorry Cleveland Fans.

25.T-Mobile Park-Mariners. From 1999-2018 the home of the Seattle Mariners was called Safeco Field. In December of 2018 Seattle changed the name to T-Mobile Park. T-Mobile Park is a strange Ballpark. If You are in Seattle and want to check out a mariners game, go to the ballpark at night . At Night T-Mobile Park is beautiful with the bright lights. At Daytime it just is not the field to go to. 25 is the best I could do for T-Mobile Park
24. Nationals Park Opened: 2008
Nationals Park is one of the newer stadiums in the League, only opening a little bit over a decade ago. Even Though it is new it still dose not get very far on the rankings. It is not terrible, it's just that there is nothing to the stadium that pops out. You Can see a little bit of a skyline but it really does not show at all. Nationals Park did host the 2018 Home Run Derby And All Star Game. Nationals Park is boring and I would like to see 23 ballparks before making a stop here.
23. Sun Trust Park-Braves Opened: 2017
Sun Trust Park is a decent park with a good amount of attractions. The Problem is that this stadium opened it's doors just 3 years ago and it is the second newest stadium in the major leagues behind The Texas Rangers. The newer stadiums should be way more modern and there should be something in the stadium that just pops out. But this is just a baseball field with no great things to look at. For a stadium that was built 3 years ago this should be way more interesting and cool but the braves did not put anything that stands out in the stadium. The Chop House in Right Field is a fun place to hangout in the stadium but that is really it. This stadium lands at 23 on the rankings.
22. Coors Field-Rockies Opened: 1995
Now if you want to go see a baseball game with a ton of home runs in it than come to Coors Field. But if you want to go to a stadium to see some great looks this is not really the place to go. Right Field is the weak spot of the ballpark. Based off of looks, right field is just downright awful. Center Field is just Bushes and Trees but Left Field is the spot. The Jumbotron is in a perfect position and on top of it is the rockies amazing alternate logo. Adding something in Right Field would but this spot higher but or now 22 is all I could go for Coors Field
21. Globe Life Field-Rangers Opened: 2020
Globe Life Field is the newest stadium in the MLB. Moving out from Globe Life Park was a pretty dumb decision. Globe Life Park was an amazing stadium with nice views. But This new stadium can not get in the top 20's. There has been not a single game played here so I really can not say anything negative or positive about it. One thing is there are 2 jumbotrons in the stadium. One In Left Field and one in Right Field but both are way too high up. Other than that there is not much to say about the ballpark so it will just land at number 21.
