Top 8 Most Historic Baseball Stadiums

Top 8 Most Historic Baseball Stadiums

1) Fenway Park (Boston)
The “Green Monster” is one of the quirks of this stadium, which is an outfield wall 37 feet high. Other highlights of this stadium include the baseball scoreboards showing the Fenway history shortest majors home run as well as the longest home run.

2) Wrigley Field (Chicago)

Some describe the Wrigley Field as a nostalgic experience, since the rest of Chicago has turned into a mini-Manhattan. The Wrigley Field remains old-school as it always has been, with its advertising-free ivy covered fences. Wrigleyville, the surrounding neighborhood remains the same as well.

3) Bosse Field (Evansville, Indiana)
This is the third oldest stadium that is still being used professionally. It was built in 1915, and it’s had its share of teams in the minor leagues. But the most defining thing Bosse is known for is being shown in a movie called “A League of Their Own”, filmed in 1992 with Madonna and Tom Hanks.

4) Cardines Field (Newport, Rhode Island)
There are various claims that this is one of the world’s oldest ball parks, dating back to 1890. Cardines hosted games with stars like Josh Gibson and Satchel Page. This wooden stadium hosts high school games now, as well as Sunset League baseball.

5) The New Yankee Stadium (Bronx)
This one is considered the most expensive in the world, as well as a combination of sports history and luxury. Its exterior is made of limestone, and above each gate hangs the stadium’s name in gold letters. The stadium also holds a museum inside it with Yankees memorabilia and their many memories, as well as hundreds of photographs of their iconic triumphs.

6) Doubleday Field (Cooperstown, New York)
This one is sometimes referred to as the ‘birthplace of baseball’. It has not been home to any particular team, but it is a home to all of them. It is said that the rules have been made by Abner Doubleday and that the first baseball game was played here in 1839, and it was a just a cow pasture back then. Now the Doubleday mostly hosts commemorative games, an example of which is the Hall of Fame Classic.

7) AT&T Park (San Francisco, California)
This stadium’s large bleacher section, manual baseball scoreboards, and its brick construction give it a ‘neighborhood ballpark’ kind of feel. The home plate is being faced with every seat there is, and foul territory is diminished. All this means that the fans are closer to the action.

8) Camden Yards (Baltimore, Maryland)
This one was built specifically to resemble another older stadium, but has facilities that are updated. It holds 43,000 seats, but each and every one of them feels like it’s close to the field. The attendance averages for Camden yards have doubled for Orioles home games, so other stadiums have tried to model themselves after Camden as well.
