Quick Facts: Rating: 2 baseballs
For a park that was built in 1988, they could have done better.

The only thing that seemed really good about this place was the press boxes. Otherwise, from the seating bowl to the concession stands, the park was simply blah. They even got a buck to park, which I didn’t think was necessary. At least the side grandstands have partial roofs, which came in handy during a rain delay I experienced here. In addition, there are no bleachers; everything is stadium seating.

Ed Smith Stadium got a facelift in time for the 2011 season, as the Baltimore Orioles, who occupied the facility when it was first built, moved back in and made major upgrades.
