Power Ranking all 30 MLB Ballparks

8: PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates)

Credi: Pittsburgh Pirates

Credi: Pittsburgh Pirates

Visual: 23/25

Just an absolute beauty. The Pittsburgh skyline is in the background, with the Clemente Bridge and Allegheny River beyond right field. Everything about this ballpark is just perfect. The Pirates even limited the capacity so as not to play in front of a ton of empty seats.

History: 13/25

PNC has hosted one All-Star Game and hosted the first playoff baseball game in Pittsburgh since 1993. It has also seen a no-hitter, and should see more postseason games for years to come.

Overall: 36/50

    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.
