MLB Ballpark Rankings did a decent job of ranking the thirty MLB ballparks. May have been a little media bias ranking Turner Field behind Anaheim and US Cellular Field. It’s bad when new York spent all that money on two new ballparks and only have them ranked tenth and twelfth. Even worse for Miami to build a new park and have it ranked fourth from last.

With so many great new ballparks having opened the last fifteen years it is easy to see how city-run Turner Field has fallen to twenty-seventh of thirty. Another reason to see why the Braves opted not to renew their lease and instead build a new ballpark.
