Progressive Field has been named the best ballpark in Major League Baseball for 2019 by Stadium Journey.

Stadium Journey rated each ballpark on the gameday experience which includes food and beverage options, gameday atmosphere, fan support and neighborhood.

"Progressive Field, formerly Jacobs Field, was built in the era of baseball stadiums being built as cathedrals. That said it aged quickly, but the team didn’t let age make the game day experience any less enjoyable. A total renovation of the outfield and concessions areas, as well as the addition of a museum in the outfield, make what was once looking a bit drab completely new again."

The Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati came in at No. 21.

Stadium Journey said the price of tickets, parking, concession, and surrounding neighborhoods makes this stadium and ideal trip for baseball lovers.
