All 30 MLB stadiums, ranked: 2023 edition

1. Petco Park - San Diego Padres

We really shouldn’t be surprised at this point because Petco Park truly is the perfect ballpark. It’s embedded right in the heart of downtown San Diego with the skyline basically on top of you. There’s a community park that leads right into the outfield concourses, making it a cool place to check out even on non-gamedays. Petco Park has the best food and beer selection in baseball to go along with the top-notch location. And now that the Padres are among the more exciting teams in MLB, the game-day atmosphere measures up with the stadium itself.

It’s really difficult to imagine any stadium topping Petco Park — it’s simply the best.

Orioles remove ‘The Sun’ and Dempsey’s signs from Camden Yards

The Orioles removed two longtime noteworthy signs from Camden Yards on Thursday, taking down “The Sun” signage from above the center field scoreboard and the Dempsey’s Brew Pub sign on the B&O Warehouse.

The team said it’s opening the scoreboard space for sponsorship opportunities and that the future of the restaurant and its space are to be announced. In January, the Orioles replaced its longtime concession operator with a new company for the upcoming season.

The Baltimore Sun logo had been featured atop the ballpark’s scoreboard and in its clock since it opened in 1992, becoming closely associated with the iconic venue. The clock numbers that spelled out Baltimore Sun were being covered Thursday.
