Major League Ballparks since 1900

Sorted chronologically by franchise

© 2012 Grand Slam Enterprises

This chart is the culmination of a lot of effort and research.  It is certainly a work in progress, as I will be filling in the "blank" fields as I run across the missing data.  For right now, though, it should give you some valuable info regarding the ballparks that the teams in the Majors have used starting in 1900.

There is a lot of data in this table, so it might take your browser a little while to load it all, so be patient.  Note also the footnotes below the chart.

NOTES:  

  • Franchises are in alphabetical order by current team nickname (note that team nicknames might have changed over the years)
  • Some "1st year" dates are prior to 1900 because the park was already in use when the new century arrived

  •   Outfield dimensions

  • The name of the stadium, the capacity and the dimensions shown are the last/most recent used by that team
  • The source (in most cases) of the architects is the 2006 edition of Green Cathedrals. Here are the explanations of numbered notes in this column: 1 - Herman Lloyd and WB Morgan and Wilson Morris Crain & Anderson; 2 - Osborn Engineering and Charles E. McLaughlin; 3 - Heery International and Williams-Russell & Johnson and Ellerbe Beckett; 4 - HKS and Eppstein Uhen Assoc.; 5 - Osborn Engineering and Harry B. Herts; 6 - Naramore Bain Brady & Johnson and Skillington Engineers and Osborn Engineering and Praeger-Kavanagh-Waterbury; 7 - Ewing Cole Cherry Brott and HOK; 8 - Deeter Ritchey Sipple and Michael Baker and Osborn Engineering; 9 - Heery & Heery and Finch Alexander Barnes Rothschild & Paschal; 10 - Charles Deaton and Kivett & Meyers
  • The Area of Fair Territory (AFT) is expressed in square feet.  It represents the area of the entire playing surface within the foul lines and outfield walls.  It is not available for all parks.  The figures listed are from Oscar Palacios' wonderful book Ballpark Sourcebook, Diamond Diagrams, and do not necessarily reflect the AFT at either the beginning or the end of the stadium's life. For the exact year represented, please refer to the book.
  • Stadiums are listed even if they were used only part-time (but regularly, like League Park and Roosevelt Stadium) by a ML team
  • The listing does not include parks of the Federal League (1914-1915) or the Negro Leagues

There are bound to be errors in this, so please write me and point them out.
