Top 10 Largest MLB Stadiums
Arturo Pardavilla is the photographer that captured this image. (Creative Commons Attribution 2.0) If there is one thing that all Major League Baseball fans are unanimously aware of, it is that every MLB stadium is unique in its own way. Sight lines, feature size, and overall quality are all different between the two. The size of a stadium does not automatically imply superior quality, and the conduct of the crowd base may have a significant impact on the ambience of a ballpark. Here are the ten largest stadiums in Major League Baseball, and all ten are well worth seeing this summer, according to Baseball Prospectus.
10. St. Louis Cardinals – Busch Stadium. 46,861.
Image courtesy of Redlegsfan21 on Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0) With the completion of Stadium Village, which is located adjacent to Busch Stadium, the ballpark has been transformed into the ideal Major League Baseball destination. Ballpark Village is a village of pubs and eateries located outside of the stadium, comparable to Yawkey Way outside of Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. During the 2009 MLB All-Star game, commonly known as the Midsummer Classic, Busch Stadium was able to show off its capabilities.
Louis Cardinals are one of the most historic organizations in baseball, they are extremely liberal with their standing room only tickets, distributing about 3,000 tickets per game.
Louis, with the renowned Arch visible in the background, from the upper deck.
A number of facilities are available, including the Champions Club, which offers a full bar and food, providing a one-of-a-kind fan experience.
9. Seattle Mariners – T-Mobile Park. 47,116.
Sean O’Neill is the photographer who captured this image (CC BY-ND 2.0) T-Mobile Park, which is located in the SODO neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, is one of the more unusual and picturesque Major League Baseball stadiums in the country. SODO is an abbreviation for south of downtown, and it is also the location of CenturyLink Field, which serves as the home of the Seattle Seahawks. The retractable roof, which was one of the first to be installed in a Major League Baseball stadium, is undoubtedly the most distinguishing feature of this facility in comparison to other MLB stadiums.
T-Mobile Park has five levels of seating, including two bleacher sections in center field, and a total of 30,000 seats.
The views of the Seattle skyline from the top floors are very impressive. T-Mobile Park, which is located in the Pacific time zone, may be new territory to most Major League Baseball fans, but make no mistake about it; it is a hidden treasure.
8. Baltimore Orioles – Oriole Park at Camden Yards. 48,876.
Image courtesy of Ethan Gruber. (Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0) When Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened its doors in 1992, it was hailed as one of the first retro ballparks to be built in Major League Baseball in the country. Camden possesses a number of characteristics that make it an excellent location to watch a professional baseball game. Not only are you near to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, which is home to a plethora of fantastic food options, but you can also see the city skyline, as well as the rustic B O Warehouse, which is located in right field.
Pre- or post-game visits to Dempsey’s Restaurant, a favorite hangout for Orioles and Baltimore Ravens supporters, are highly recommended while in town.
Baltimore Orioles tickets are also among of the most cheap in all of Major League Baseball, according to the team’s website.
Don’t forget that Baltimore is only 45 minutes from Washington, DC, making it possible to see both Camden Yards and Nationals Park in the course of a single trip.
7. Arizona Diamondbacks – Chase Field. 49,033.
Nick Bastian is the photographer that captured this image. (Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 2.0) When you hear the nameChase Field mentioned, the first thing that springs to mind for most fans is “the swimming pool,” much like the fountains at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City. Chase Field was ultimately finished in 1998, after years of public protests and political wrangling on the part of the federal government. In addition, the city was experiencing difficult financial times, and the venue ended up costing the city many millions of dollars more than originally expected.
In Phoenix, Arizona, the retractable roof of Chase Field shields Diamondback fans from the sweltering and potentially lethal summer temperatures.
6. Texas Rangers – Globe Life Park in Arlington. 49,110.
Hyunjae Park is the photographer who captured this image. Globe Life Park, with its blend of elements that can be seen in other classic and historic ballparks, is perhaps one of the most distinctive Major League Baseball stadiums. It is the home run porch in right field, which pays homage to the former Tiger Stadium in Detroit, that is the most easily recognized element. Private rooms, which are frequently used by local firms, may be found near the center of the field. The ballpark, which is located in Arlington, Texas, between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, was deliberately developed to provide easy access from all regions of the metropolitan area.
The owners anticipated that providing easier access would result in more attendance. In addition, the ballpark is directly across the street from AT T Stadium, which serves as the home of the Dallas Cowboys.
5. Atlanta Braves – Turner Field. 50,096.
Peter Bond is the photographer that captured this image. (Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0) Atlanta’s Braves had previously played their home games in Fulton County Stadium, which was demolished after Atlanta was chosen as the host city for the 1996 Summer Olympics. The city of Atlanta had not meant for the Braves to play in a new ballpark, but they were not willing to allow the facility to sit vacant for an extended period of time. In 1997, the Atlanta Braves relocated to Turner Field after a year-long construction project.
For the Atlanta Braves, 2016 will mark the conclusion of their tenure at Turner Field.
4. Colorado Rockies – Coors Field. 50,445.
Max Bernt is the photographer who captured this image. (Creative Commons Attribution 2.0) As part of the expansion of Major League Baseball that occurred in the 1990s, the Colorado Rockies were given their first season of play in the old Mile High Stadium in Colorado Springs. Because of the thin air in Colorado, Coors Field is one of the more home run friendly ballparks in the country. The Rockies, on the other hand, now store their baseballs in a humidor, which makes them drier and more difficult to hit from a greater distance.
Consequently, the field was built with deep dimensions to reduce the quantity of home runs that were hit on the field.
3. Toronto Blue Jays – Rogers Centre. 50,515.
Image courtesy of James G (CC BY 2.0) The Rogers Centre was the first Major League Baseball stadium to have a hotel on its grounds (located in upper right field). There are a handful of rooms that have a view of the field. The CN Tower, which can be seen from the stadium’s roof when the roof is open, adds to the splendor of the ballpark. The Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League play their home games in the Skydome, which is also known as the Skydome. In fact, it was during severe weather during a CFL game that the city came up with the concept to build a dome above the stadium.
2. New York Yankees – Yankee Stadium. 52,325.
Image courtesy of Redlegsfan21 on Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0) Yankee Stadium is perhaps the most renowned stadium in Major League Baseball, and it is on track to surpass the legendary status of the old Yankee Stadium in the near future. But many Yankees fans have been priced out of the market for tickets to games at the new stadium, according to the team’s website. The average price of a ticket is $34 dollars. Legend Seats, which are essentially private suites and club sections, are the seats that are the closest to the field and are the most expensive.
Yes, this is New York City, but the prices have significantly reduced the likelihood of many fans being able to attend games in person this season.
We all remember the events that transpired following Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, as well as the hapless fan who managed to catch the ball. It’s still one of my favorite venues to see a sporting event in person.
1. Los Angeles Dodgers – Dodger Stadium. 56,000.
Image courtesy of Eugene Kim (CC BY 2.0) Finally, we have Dodger Stadium, which is known as the “King Kong” of all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums. Dodger Stadium, which has 56,000 seats, is really comparable in size to an NFL stadium in terms of capacity. The combination of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Elysian Hills in the surrounding region contributes to the splendor of the stadium. Dodger Stadium was the first baseball stadium to welcome more than 3 million people in a single season, and it still holds the record.
- In an apparent attempt to dissuade tailgating, which is now prohibited at Dodger Stadium, the parking lots open at the exact same time as the stadium gates, according to some observers.
- According to the 2012 season ticket prices, 96 percent of the ballpark’s seats were priced at or below $20 a ticket.
- In reality, fights take place at every professional event; you just may or may not be aware of them at the time.

The Largest Baseball Stadium
- The huge metropolis of Los Angeles is home to the world’s largest baseball stadium, Dodger Stadium. Yankee Stadium is not just the most costly baseball stadium in the world, but it is also a close second. Turner Field, sometimes known as “The Ted,” was built as a replacement for the 1996 Olympic Stadium in Atlanta.
As the popularity of baseball expanded throughout the course of the twentieth century, so did the size of baseball stadiums. What began as a few bleachers bordering the sidelines has grown into massive stadiums, such as the $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2008. The Yankees’ home field is the most costly baseball stadium in history, and it is only second in the world in terms of price to Wembley Stadium in England as the most expensive stadium in the world. In order to justify that price, you may suppose that it has the greatest baseball stadium capacity available; however, you would be incorrect.
- What is the name of the world’s largest baseball stadium?
- Capacity for seating is 56,000 people.
- It is the third-oldest baseball diamond in the United States, after only Fenway Park and Wrigley Field in terms of age.
- It is possible for Dodger Stadium to be enlarged to accommodate up to 85,000 fans if the need arises; however, the team’s ownership has not determined that it is essential at this time.
- The New Yankee Stadium is a new stadium built by the New York Yankees.
- It takes the place of the previous stadium, which had been the home of the Bronx Bombers since 1923.
- The first game to be played there was an exhibition game versus the Chicago Cubs on April 3, 2009, which was broadcast nationally.
Coors Field has a seating capacity of 50,445 people.
During their first two seasons (1993 and 1994), the Colorado Rockies played their home games at Mile High Stadium, which also served as the home of the Denver Broncos football club.
This was the most attended baseball game in the history of the sport.
Since 1997, Turner Field has served as the home of the Atlanta Braves of the National League.
Following the conclusion of the Olympics, it was transformed into a baseball stadium, and the seating capacity was lowered during the renovation process.
Capacity for seating is 49,200 people.
It is a retro-style ballpark that incorporates many of the characteristics of older-style baseball stadiums.
Consequently, in response to the query “what is the largest baseball stadium?” Dodger Stadium wins the prize for the most seats available.
I’m surprised that the Yankees didn’t choose for the largest baseball stadium available, which would also have been the most costly option available. During this time, electrical circuit boards continue to light up.

MLB The Show 21: Biggest Stadiums to Hit Home Runs
MLB The Show 21 includes all 30 Major League stadiums, as well as Minor League and historical venues, among other things. Each baseball stadium has its own unique dimensions, which distinguishes it from other sports in which the field has uniform proportions regardless of the venue. Many variables might impact the selection on which stadium to play in The Show, including the player’s favorite team, hometown, memorable experiences, and so on. This essay will focus on one major factor: the size of the ballparks, which makes it that much more difficult to smash home runs at these venues.
One of the ballparks on the list boasts one of the shortest distances down either line in baseball, but there is a massive, looming hurdle in left field that must be overcome.
This is done in order to preserve consistency with another list that contains the ballparks with the smallest dimensions, which is also available.
The stadium names will be listed in alphabetical order by name, with the name of the team that plays there in parenthesis after each stadium name.
1. Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks)
413 413 413 334 Dimensions: 330, 413, 407, 413, 334 While there are 374 yards to the right and left of the center, the 413 yards to the left and right of the center are the highlight as a task.
Furthermore, the high wall in the middle makes it more difficult to access 407 and 413 on the map. The wall in the center of the room juts out a little. Aside than that, the walls are regular height, with the pool area in the right center of the field serving as the primary attraction.
2. Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers)
Measurements in inches: 345, 370, 420, 365, and 330 Despite the fact that the center field wall has been moved by 20 feet, center field at Comerica Park continues to have the largest distance between home plate and the outfield wall in the Majors. Except for center field, Comerica’s distances are in the middle of the league, a bit longer along the lines and a little shorter to the gaps, which is ironic considering the team’s location. There is a slightly higher-than-average wall in the right center that sticks out a little, but the actual obstacle is getting to dead center, which is 421 feet away.
3. Coors Field (Colorado Rockies)
Size: 347, 390, 415, 375, 350, 347, 390, 415 Coors Field, the last C in our triplet of Cs, may be the largest park in the world in terms of total size. However, because of the thinner air in Denver, Coors Field has traditionally been considered a hitter’s park, and the same characteristics carry over into the game, making it an intriguing dilemma. In addition to the towering scoreboard in straightaway right field and the enormous transparent planes of fiberglass that extend over the walls in right center, where the bullpens are located, there are numerous more obstacles to overcome.
4. Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
Dimensions: 310, 379, 390, 420, and 302 millimeters The Fenway Park baseball stadium, which was mentioned to in the introduction, holds the distinction of having the shortest lines and the deepest gap in the league. Hooking a home hit just inside the foul pole in right field is the shortest home run in the game because of the “Pesky Pole” in right and the low wall in the left field bleachers (outside of an inside-the-park variety). The Green Monster, which towers above the left and left-center fields, is more than 37 feet tall and spans both fields.
Moreover, while the distance to right center is 380 feet, if you hit it into the triangle between center and right-center field, you will have to work incredibly hard to make a home run since the distance is 420 feet!
5. Oracle Park (San Francisco Giants)
339, 399, 391, 415, and 309 are the dimensions. A few years after the fences were relocated inside Oracle Park, which is often regarded the most beautiful ballpark in the Majors, the stadium continues to create several issues. 309 is a short walk to right field, but the arcade area is perched atop a 25-foot wall that also serves as a representation of the out-of-town scoreboard, which is located at the foot of the wall. Real-life conditions such as strong gusts from McCovey Cove make it more difficult to hit home runs, but this does not necessarily translate to the gaming environment.
When it comes to home runs in right center, the walls that depict “triples alley” are likewise high and weirdly placed, so you’ll have to really slam into one with a power hitting partner if you want to hit one in that section.
For those The Show gamers looking for a challenging environment in which to hit home runs, these stadiums provide the finest option when considering a mix of ballpark dimensions and obstructions present. Which one are you going to take down first?
Ranking MLB Stadiums by Capacity and Per Capita – Baseball
HomeBaseballMajor League Baseball Stadiums Ranked by Capacity and Per Capita Despite the fact that baseball stadiums are not as enormous as football stadiums, they can nonetheless accommodate a significant number of people in a relatively compact (ish) footprint. In addition, given the duration of a baseball season, baseball stadiums receive more visitors than any other sports venue in the United States.
Baseball Stadiums Ranked by Capacity
The fact that neither the largest nor the smallest are the largest or the smallest comes as a surprise. Dodger Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has the largest capacity of any MLB stadium, while Tropica Field, the home of the Tampa Bay Rays, has the lowest. It sheds some light on how much of a jump Andrew Friedman experienced when he switched teams.

The World’s Biggest Baseball Parks
Baseball stadiums have the capacity to host a large number of people. Baseball is played on baseball parks, also known as baseball diamonds, all over the world, where teams compete against one another. Their structure is made up of a field and seats for spectators. There are many different types of seating capacities at baseball stadiums, ranging from a few bleachers to numerous layers of seats. This article takes a look at the largest baseball stadiums in the world in terms of total seating capacity (seat capacity).
Biggest Baseball Parks In The World
Dodger Stadium, which is located in Los Angeles, in the United States state of California, is the largest baseball stadium in the world. It has the capacity to hold up to 56,000 spectators. It cost $23 million to build this baseball field, which is the equivalent of $182 million now. The money came from private sources. The construction project began in 1959 and was completed in three years. Dodger Stadium first opened its doors to the public on April 10, 1962, making it the oldest baseball stadium west of the Mississippi River in the United States.
It also hosted the 1984 Summer Olympics as well as semi-finals and finals of the World Baseball Classics.
2. Estadio Latinoamericano
This baseball stadium, which has a seating capacity of 55,000 people, is one of just two in the world that can compete with the largest stadiums in the major leagues. It is located in the Cuban capital of Havana and is widely regarded as the most significant baseball stadium in all of Latin America. The first game played here was between the Cienfuegos and the Almendares on October 26, 1946, in front of a crowd of 32,000 people, and it was a sellout.
Its capacity was increased in 1971, bringing it to its current level. Despite the fact that this stadium is mostly used for baseball games, it has also been used for other events such as dances, boxing fights, and political protests.
3. Tokyo Dome
Tokyo, Japan is home to the third-largest baseball park in the world, the Tokyo Dome. The Tokyo Dome, which has a capacity of 55,000 people, is tied for second place with the Estadio Latinoamericano in terms of overall capacity. When it comes to this stadium, the dome is an air supported structure, which means that it is supported by the pressured air that exists within the stadium. After nearly three years of building, this baseball field finally opened its doors to the public on March 17, 1988.
Additionally, this stadium is home to a variety of other events such as concerts, wrestling fights, American football games, and monster truck rallies.
4. Sapporo Dome
The Sapporo Dome, located in the Japanese city of Sapporo, is the world’s third-largest baseball stadium. It can accommodate a total of 53,796 spectators at its seating capacity. The stadium first opened its doors in June 2001 with a capacity of 41,580 seats, and it was later extended to its present size in 2009. The Sapporo Dome is unique in that it has two separate playing grounds, one for men and one for women. For baseball games, it has an artificial turf field, while for football games, it has a grass surface that can be moved into and out of the dome using a sliding system.
During the 2002 FIFA World Cup, this facility hosted three matches, and in 2007, it hosted the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.

The Largest Baseball Stadiums In The United States
The Dodger Stadium is a baseball stadium in Los Angeles, California. Baseball began in the United States in the 1850s in the New York metropolitan region, where it is still played today. By 1857, the game had already established itself as the national game (or national pastime), with 16 clubs joining together to form the first regulatory organization, the National Association of Baseball Players, in order to oversee the game. As early as 1919, baseball has infiltrated so deeply into American society that philosopher Morris Raphael Cohen has been described as referring to the sport as “America’s national religion.” The popularity of baseball has increased significantly over the previous century, resulting in a huge increase in the size of baseball stadiums.
Stadiums around the country differ widely in terms of everything from the layout of their playing fields to the style of their architecture to the level of comfort provided by their seats.
The construction of Yankee Stadium cost a total of $2.5 billion, making it the most costly baseball stadium ever built in the world.
The Largest Baseball Stadiums In The US
Dodger Stadium, which is located in the city of Los Angeles in the state of California, has a seating capacity of 56,000 and is the third-oldest stadium in the United States. Built entirely with private funds, the Stadium was the first Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium to be built entirely using private funds. On September 17, 1959, the first stone was laid in the building of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. It was constructed in 1962 at a cost of $23 million (equal to $182 million dollars in 2017 currency), and it took three years to finish.
The stadium’s seating capacity, on the other hand, has stayed constant at 56,000 since it was built.
Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum
It is commonly referred to as the Oakland Coliseum because it is the last stadium in the United States to be utilized for both professional baseball and football. The Oakland Athletics (MLB) and the Oakland Raiders (NFL) play their home games in the Oakland Coliseum, which was built in 1966 in Oakland, California. It was previously the home of the San Jose Earthquakes (soccer) (MLS). Building work was originally scheduled to begin in the spring of 1962, but complications forced the start date to be delayed two years, to the spring of 1964.
The stadium officially opened on September 18, 1966, and the Kansas City Athletics relocated to Oakland for the 1968 Major League Baseball season, becoming the Oakland Athletics.
It is located in the New York City borough of the Bronx and has a seating capacity of 47,309. This makes it the sixth largest stadium in the United States, with a total capacity of 47,309. It was initially built in 1923 and served as the home of the Bronx Bombers. The original Yankee Stadium was demolished in 2009, and the new Yankee Stadium was erected in its stead. The rebuilt stadium, which has 52,325 seats and cost $2.3 billion to build, is located one block north of the former stadium, which has been transformed into a public park.
Concerns about wasteful government expenditure and the loss of public open space were among the topics discussed in these debates.
The Atlanta Braves played their home games at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia, from 1997 to 2016. In 2016, it was the third-largest major league baseball stadium in the United States, with a seating capacity of 50,095. Turner was initially built for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. It had an initial seating capacity of 85,000 people.
However, following the conclusion of the Olympics, the field was turned into a baseball stadium, with the seating capacity being lowered accordingly. Upon completion of renovations, the stadium became Georgia State Stadium, which is now home to the Georgia State University Panthers football team.
