    That's old Engel Stadium...I remember my grandfather and some other old-timers talking about Harmon Killebrew hitting some mammoth shots out of there years ago. It's still around, but the Lookouts have a great new park. Nice memories, though.

      I been to a couple dozen minor league parks and I would probably vote for the Staten Island Yankees, it is tough to beat the backdrop in center field.

      I also am fond of Trenton, New Haven, Quad City, West Tennessee, Nashville, Jamestown Jammers (NY) and Toledo.

        The old McCormick Field of the Asheville Tourists (Sally League) was a great place to watch a game. Sitting in them old style blue wooden seats and walking the wood aisle ways was special. It helped me to imagine of the old greats of the game that had come through Asheville, NC. When a rally was in the makings, the fans would stomp their feet on the wooden bleachers and the sound was so sweet. Although, sometimes, those wooden bleachers would get a little scary as they bounced and swayed with their creaking sounds. But, Man, what fond memories I have of the old stadium. That place had genuine character and good times.

        A little bit of movie triva about that park is that it appeared in the movie Bull Durham near the end when Crash Davis broke the minor league homer record. The shot of Crash coming around 3B towards home plate shows the left field outfield wall.

          we have seen 6 minor league stadiums -- charleston (sc) river dogs, wilmington blue rocks, charleston (west virginia) alley cats, lansing lugnuts, peoria chiefs, montgomery biscuits.

          lansing and montgomery - the newest. but hands-down favorite has to be montgomery biscuits riverwalk stadium. it is built into their 125+ yr old train station. they have done a remarkable job of restoring the old structure with all-new, while keeping it's quaint/antique train station appearance.

            Birmingham's park isn't bad, but the sod is starting to come up. What really is a great park is Rickwood Field, America's Oldest Ballpark. Every year they have the Rickwood Classic and the players dress up in the old uniforms and play at Rickwood. It's the best game of the year in my opinion.

                Lackawanna County Stadium. There's nothing special about it but I have had some of my fondest baseball memories there. My favorite is Chase Utley's shot over the left central wall to beat Buffalo in July 2002.

                    Out of sentimentality, I have to go for the cozy confines of my home ballpark, Tinker Field. Unfortunately, it is no longer occupied by any minor league organization. It's a great place to see a ballgame and I hope that some day soon another club will take advantage of the available facility.

                      That is one stadium I am not fond of. I have seen good players, and good games there, but uggg...what an ugly stadium. No offence intended Coal Cracker.

                      My favorite stadium so far is 1st Energy Park (home of the Lakewood Blue Claws). It is a beautiful stadium inside and out. I think my favorite will become Campbell's Field (home of the Camden Riversharks) when I get there later this month, though.

                        I love McCoy stadium that the Pawtucket Red Sox(AAA) play in. Nice blend of modern ammenities with the quaint old-school minor league park. Probably one of the best in New England after it's parent organization's park.

                            minor league park..with great views, a decent team, and strong

                              The stadium itself isn't anything spectacular but the backdrop of the mountains beyond the outfield wall is a nice touch.
