Visual: 17/25

This is just a cool park. With the train in left field and those big pillars behind the Crawford Boxes, to Tal’s Hill in center field, which will see its final year in 2015. Very cool. With the roof open, the entire Houston skyline is visible.

History: 15/25

Since opening in 2000, it has seen the Astros in one World Series and a no-hitter. With the Astros on the upswing, there’s no doubt more history will be made in this stadium.

Overall: 32/50

    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.
