One of the main things that represent Major League Baseball is the stunning ballparks the Major teams play in.
I, for one, wish Britain had architecture as beautiful with a gorgeous sunset backdrop to accompany it to hold our sporting events.
There are many examples of fantastic stadiums in the MLB but which ones rank in the top five?
5. Coors Field
Home to the Colorado Rockies, this ballpark has some amazing architecture with various fountains, plants and rocks behind the outfield fence. The main attraction (besides the baseball) are the breath taking views of the Rockies behind the outfield stands, the field is pretty small too, so you can expect to see a lot of balls flying over the fences.
4. Fenway Park
Just over a year ago, the Boston Red Sox celebrated 100 years at this famous and iconic venue. Naturally, the park has lots of character, history and tradition and represents everything good about Baseball. The 'Green Monster' is one of the most iconic features about the Boston's ballpark, with hitters having to go a lot higher than usual to register a home run out in left field.
3. Wrigley Field
The ultimate old-school baseball park. Situated in Baseball's best neighbourhood and home to the Chicago Cubs, this ball park really has an American feel to it. The Giant manual scoreboard is a feature of note and next year will mark the 100th year of Wrigley Field.
2. Camden Yards
Opened in 1992, the Baltimore Orioles ball park is one of the best around. The warehouse behind it was incorporated into the park itself, giving a unique touch about the place and the Baltimore skyline is definitely something to be admired. The two-tiered bullpens are also quite impressive, too. Oh, and the Baseball inside the park is also getting notably better too!
1. AT&T Park
The winner is awarded to the home of 2012's world series winners, San Francisco Giants. There is nothing to dislike about AT&T Park, with views of the wonderful San Francisco bay if you pick the right seat. Not to mention the unique features that allow the Giants to call the place 'home', such as the giant coke bottle and the giant glove. The place apparently doesn't have a bad seat in the house and apparently it does a damn good hot dog.
