The Ballpark Year In Pictures

Our annual pictorial essay on the biggest ballpark-related stories of the year is now available. And to spice things up, we asked our readers to help us rank the stories. Which did they vote to be the biggest? The new ballpark in El Paso? The start of construction on the Atlanta Braves' new stadium? The return of post-season baseball to Kauffman Stadium (left) after a 29-year absence? See for yourself!

Joe on
the go

I'm currently working on an article on what MLB teams want in their spring-training complexes. It will appear in the USA Today Spring Training Preview, which will be out next month ... See a list of all of the parks where I attended games in 2014.

Happy New Year! wishes all of our visitors a Happy New Year, one filled with many, many trips to the ballpark! Count on us in 2015 to give you the most in-depth reviews of the new parks in Nashville, Biloxi and Morgantown, and the latest developments in Columbia SC and Potomac in Northern VA!

Big League ballpark notes

It's no secret the Nationals and Astros would like a new spring training complex, and they want it to be in Palm Beach County. The County agrees, and is willing to put up half of the projected $135 million cost. This sticking point is exactly where it will be built ... The Cubs' one-year-old spring-training stadium (left) has a new corporate-sponsorship name: Sloan Park ... The Sporting News, now only an online publication, pronounced Milwaukee's Miller Park as the best in the Majors following a fan vote. Of course, the Brewers conducted a campaign to get their fans to vote in the poll ... Hamilton County, Ohio got creative when the seats at Great American Ball Park needed to be replaced ... After initially agreeing to loosen the leash a bit on the Rays, with the City of St. Petersburg giving them the opportunity to buy their way out of the iron-clad lease for Tropicana Field, the City Council rejected the preliminary deal. This might be the straw that leads to the sale of the franchise and its inevitable relocation.
