A stadium of any size made specifically for baseball, rather than multiple sports.

Field of Dreams Ballpark (8,000) - Dubuque County, Iowa

Quote:
Work is underway for 2020’s Field of Dreams MLB regular-season game, with plans taking shape for a temporary ballpark that will be constructed in the Dyersville, IA cornfield.

Earlier this month, MLB announced that the Chicago White Sox will host the New York Yankees in a regular-season game at the Field of Dreams site on August 13, 2020. Since that announcement was made, there has been considerable buzz surrounding the contest that will serve as an homage to the beloved 1989 baseball film. With a little less than a year remaining until the game will be played, planning to construct a temporary ballpark is underway.

The actual Field of Dreams playing surface on the site is far too small and not up to MLB standards, so a portion of the surrounding cornfield has been cleared to make way for the temporary facility that will host the White Sox and Yankees. In that space will rise an 8,000-seat venue, which include the playing field, temporary facilities, and infrastructure needed to host an MLB regular-season game that is being nationally televised.

Maybe by some technical definition. Otherwise, it's just any ground that baseball is played in. I'm watching Yankees at Oakland right now and they literally just called it a ballpark.

A couple of pics of Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver. Home of the short season Single A Vancouver Canadians (affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays).

Built in 1951, the stadium is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. Nestled in Queen Elizabeth Park on the cities west side, it holds up to 6500 fans.

I know this isn't about little ballparks per se, but 2 recent articles show some shakeup is in store.

Article 1: Cam-Am and Frontier Leagues will merge into one league:

https://ballparkdigest.com/2019/10/1...ger-announced/

Geographically, the two leagues are ideal for a merger. The American Association is closer to the Frontier League, and the Atlantic for the Cam-Am, respectfully, but the current merger is the most logical.

Article 2: Major League Baseball proposes radical Realignment for Minor League Baseball.

https://ballparkdigest.com/2019/10/1...oposed-by-mlb/

I'm a bit skeptical about this. Those ~40 Minor League Teams might feel jaded by being kicked out. (Keep in mind the second article is a proposal, not set in stone.)

I guess that's one way of MLB finally appeasing calls to pay the minor leaguers more: Just get rid of several tiers of teams. Hopefully this is all just union positioning.
