Visual: 20/25

They have a nice view of the San Diego skyline, as well as the factory down the left field line. Also, the sandbox in right center is a cool, family friendly addition to the park. Love this stadium.

History: 14/25

There hasn’t been too much history at Petco, except for Barry Bonds hitting home run 755 to tie Hank Aaron, and a no-hitter. Still pretty cool for being opened for 11 years.

Overall: 34/50

    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.
