No matter how much MLB speeds up the game, sitting in the stands to watch some baseball leaves you with plenty of time to let your eyes wander. Taking in the ambiance is a bigger part of baseball than any other sport, which is why we’ve ranked every stadium by how scenic the view is from behind the plate. 

30. Tropicana Field


29. Oakland Coliseum


28. Rogers Centre


27. Kauffman Stadium

What a great look at the hotel beyond the leftfield wall. 

26. Miller Park

At least Bernie Brewer’s slide is awesome.

25. U.S. Cellular Field

They finally upgraded the scoreboard this season.

24. Turner Field

Get a good look, they’ll be in the suburbs next season.

23. Globe Life Ballpark in Arlington

You’d never guess it, but that structure in center is an office building

22. Coors Field

The only mountain in view is the logo on top of the scoreboard. Really?

21. Marlins Park

The windows give a nice view of the city in the background, and at least the home run sculpture isn’t always visible. 

20. Progressive Field

Who knew Cleveland had something resembling a skyline? 

19. Chase Field

Even though they have the roof closed most of the time, the windows give a pretty good view of the mountains in the distance.

18. Target Field

The old-school logo in dead center is a really underrated feature. 

17. Comerica Park

The placement of the scoreboard allows for stunning views of downtown Detroit. 

16. Citi Field

Citi Field has a few hidden features—the bridge in right-center modeled after the Hell Gate Bridge, the planes bound for nearby LaGuardia Airport that regularly fly by and of course the home run apple. 

15. Minute Maid Park

The train in rightfield pays tribute to the old train station the stadium was built into. 

14. Safeco Field

You can’t beat a sunny day in Seattle. 

13. Nationals Park

If you’re sitting in the right spot, you can see the Capitol building. 

12. Petco Park

Why does everything in San Diego have to be so beautiful?

11. Oriole Park at Camden Yards

The warehouse in right has quickly become one of the most iconic backdrops in baseball. 

10. Citizens Bank Park

You can see just about all of Philadelphia on a clear day (if you look past the parking lots).

9. Yankee Stadium

The Yankees don’t want you to realize it, but there’s no way to look out there and not remember you’re right in the middle of the Bronx. 

8. Great American Ballpark

Cincinnati’s park is built right on the banks of the Ohio River. It’s a gorgeous view, if you’re able to forget that’s Kentucky in the distance. 

7. Fenway Park

The Green Monster might be more famous, but the Citgo sign is just as iconic, in my opinion. 

6. Wrigley Field

Ivy. What more can you say?

5. Busch Stadium

Best Arch in Baseball. 

4. PNC Park

The bridge nearest the stadium is named after Roberto Clemente and the rightfield wall is 21 feet tall in his honor. 

3. Angel Stadium

Thank god they tore down the extra seats that were added when the Rams played there. 

2. AT&T Park

This is why everyone is jealous of California. 

1. Dodger Stadium

That’s fine, I guess.
