We are so grateful to everyone taking the time to vote in the Low-A, High-A and Double-A rounds of the 2018 Best of the Ballparks fan vote, and we’re on pace to surpass last year’s vote totals. (Indeed, we’re almost at the point where more folks have voted in the High-A round this year than all of last year.) There are several tight contests, so your vote will count. The Elite Eight round voting ends at 2 p.m. Central today:
- Vote here for the Double-A Elite Eight round. Will Dunkin’ Donuts Park repeat? Will we see more upsets?
- Vote here for the High-A Elite Eight round. Will Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium repeat? Will Five County Stadium or First Data Field advance? They’re currently in a virtual tie, and it will come down to the wire.
- Vote here for the Low-A Elite Eight round. Will Four Winds Field repeat? Will Fifth Third Ballpark or the Dow Diamond advance? They’re currently in a virtual tie, and it will come down to the wire. Two other contests are close as well and could well be decided today.
Check back later today to see what ballparks are in the Final Four in all three classificatrions.
