MLB Stadium Rankings

What are the best ballparks in baseball? Why not ask a guy who’s been to them all multiple times? I’ve ranked all 30 MLB ballparks from 30 to 1 using a ratings system that rewards both technical excellence, charm, and the overall fun experience from going to the game, not just the physical structure itself. This allowed for better judgment of parks of different eras, on a single scale.
