With a big upset coming in the Sweet Sixteen round, we’re now set for a very interesting Elite Eight round in the 2022 MLB Best of the Ballparks fan vote.
Of the Elite Eight, seven were in the top eight seeds. Crashing the party was #18 seed Coors Field, defeating #2 seed Dodger Stadium in a huge upset. Receiving the most votes in the Sweet Sixteen round: PNC Park, Oriole Park, Petco Park and Fenway Park.
This sets up a few fascinating matchups, with Fenway Park taking on Wrigley Field in the battle of the two oldest MLB ballparks.
The rankings are very loose, so please don’t take offense if your favorite has a low seeding in these brackets. Generally speaking, we divide these rankings into three tiers: elite (the top 13), outstanding (the middle 12) and in need of work (the bottom five). In the case of the bottom five, it’s no secret that MLB teams are seeking replacements or drastic renovations.
Some things to note. First, you are allowed to vote multiple times, but you can only vote once per day. Second, you don’t need to fill out a full slate: partially filled lineups will count. A running tally of the vote will be presented at the bottom of this page in the form of brackets. Vote below:
