What's the best park in baseball? It's a question many have debated over the years. Is it the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field? Or the sunshine, palm trees and mountains of Dodger Stadium? Do you prefer the laid-back West Coast vibe in San Diego and San Francisco? Or the frenzied east coast crowds of Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium? Three veteran sportswriters set out to answer that question. They created a system to rank all 30 Major League parks based on what matters most to fans. Their 4A system factors in the cost of each park (Affordability), the beauty of the park (Aesthetics), the food, drink and entertainment options (Amenities) and the excitement of the crowd (Atmosphere). Based on multiple visits to each park, they put together a 1 through 30 ranking of every stadium in the majors. And in this book, they share their rankings and describe each park based on their experience. The book is a great place to start any debate over which city has the best ballpark in baseball. And you'll learn a few things you didn't know about your favorite park as well.
