Visual: 16/25

Safeco is one of the better-looking fields with a retractable roof. It’s a modern ballpark with a modern feel, but unlike most modern parks Safeco can pull off a good look.

History: 15/25

Safeco has hosted some playoff games since it opened in 1999, but nothing more than the ALCS. Two perfect games have also been pitched in its short existence.

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.
