Visual: 15/25

Aside from the huge jumbo-tron and pool in right center, Chase Field is kind of bland. Also, the lack of an actual fence in center field, and use of a line to judge a home run is kind of strange.

History: 16/25

It was opened in 1998, and has seen the D’Backs capture a World Series here, as well as host an All-Star Game. It is also one of two ballparks to feature a dirt strip from the pitchers mound to home plate, the other being Comerica Park.

Overall: 31/50

    Nice article but CoPa’s dirt cutout isn’t triangular, it’s five sided and shaped like home plate.

    I have multiple problems with this article. First, it’s obvious that you haven’t been to half these stadiums. I have, and disagree with just about all your assessments. Second of all, your criteria is absurd. History shouldn’t be half your assessment, because when you go to many ballparks that have been around for 40-50 years, you just don’t “feel” the history. How Yankee Stadium is considered better than Citi Field is mind-boggling. You’ve gotta do better research.
