Regions Field is the newest minor league stadium on the “best of list,” joined by older iconic ballparks such as Asheville, North Carolina’s McCormick Field, built in 1924 and Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa, which was constructed in 1931.
Here is what Stadium Talk had to say about Regions Field:
“Less than six years old, Region Field is among the newest parks in the minors, but it was designed to reflect the town’s industrial past by incorporating brick and steel into its facade.
It also is among the most family-friendly parks in the minors, featuring a Youth Sports Zone housing a mini Wiffle ball field, a family fun park and batting cages.
The “Switchyard on 14th,” opened in 2017, offers food, beverage and outdoor game space. For adults, “The Barstream” includes 20 draft beers on tap and a full bar selection.”
Not Regions Field First Honor
Being recognized as a special ballpark is nothing new for Regions Field. After its opening in 2013, Regions Field was honored by Ballparks.com as the “Ballpark of the Year.”
As we all know, Regions Field and neighboring Railroad Park is also at the epicenter of the Parkside District which is experiencing an economic renaissance.
