Ballparks invite fans to see city sights from their seats

With a new Major League Baseball season about to open April 5, fans can anticipate a return not only to its many grand stadiums, but also to the great views many of these ballparks offer. The architects of new parks often intentionally orient and design them so that fans can see the cityscapes and scenery beyond the outfield walls. That's clearly the case with Pittsburgh's PNC Park, which Joe Mock, author of a ballpark guide and creator of the website, ranks as the major league stadium with the best view. He loves the spectacular view of the downtown skyline, especially at night, and that of the Clemente Bridge, named for the late Pirate right fielder and Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. Mock's picks of the parks with the best views and the city in which each is located:

  • 1. PNC Park Pittsburgh
  • 2. AT&T Park San Francisco
  • 3. Coors Field Denver
  • 4. Comerica Park Detroit
  • 5. Wrigley Field Chicago
  • 6. Safeco Field Seattle
  • 7. Nationals Park Washington
  • 8. Dodger Stadium Los Angeles
  • 9. Oriole Park at Camden Yards Baltimore
  • 10. Turner Field Atlanta
