Visual: 18/25

Comerica is a very cool ballpark. Its walls are deep, but it doesn’t play like a park with big fences. The big scoreboard in left, grass batters eye in center, and Detroit backdrop in right center add to its original look. Comerica also has the dirt strip from the mound to home, and has a unique triangular cutout around the dish.

History: 15/25

Comerica opened in 2000, replacing legendary Tiger Stadium. While that’s a difficult act to follow, the new park has made its own legacy. It has seen a World Series in 2006, and is one of two parks to have a dirt line going from the pitchers mound to home plate, Chase Field being the other.

Overall: 33/50

    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.
