Pro Ballparks I’ve Seen

It’s almost impossible to keep this up to date, but I try! I hope you find the format of this chart to be self explanatory. I’ve made every effort, by the way, to eliminate any “double counting” of parks that I visited at one time for one purpose (e.g., because it’s a Florida State League ballpark), and then saw a game there at a later time (a spring-training exhibition, for example). Note that there are subtotals for each league and grand totals are at the bottom.

You can visit the Joe’s Parks in Recent Years page to see the breakdown of parks I’ve visited by year. Over the past 18 years, I’ve averaged over 45 parks visited each year!
