Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George, Staten Island, N.Y. (7,171)
Staten Island Yankees - New York-Penn League - Short Season A

The Stadium has a great view of downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Not to mention, it's right next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal.

Already being built prior to our 1996 Summer Olympics bid, it would have been the site for Baseball, temporarily expanded with a temporary Softball stadium built beside it.

You forgot to post the capacity, 3,900 at the moment.

Doubleday Field, Cooperstown, N.Y. (9,791)


Doubleday Field is a baseball stadium in Cooperstown, New York named for Abner Doubleday and located two city blocks from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.

The grounds have been used for baseball since 1920, on what was Elihu Phinney's farm. A wooden grandstand was built in 1924, later replaced by a steel and concrete grandstand built in 1939 by the Works Project Administration. Subsequent expansion has increased seating capacity to 9,791 spectators.

For those who don't know, Cooperstown has more or less been dismissed as the birthplace of baseball, with most people now believing Hoboken, New Jersey to be the true birthplace.

Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium Montgomery, Alabama Capacity 7000-7500
Home of the AA Montgomery Biscuits (Tampa Bay Rays affiliate), Southern League


image hosted on flickr




The outside is an old train shed. Without the signage and lighting, no one would know the difference between before or after the stadium was built.

The shed down the 1st Base line has a few suites in it.


Famous for the Trains creeping above the left field wall during games. Some have even been hit by home run balls.

From Ballpark Digest:


21 OCTOBER 2010

Armando Gutierrez Jr. continues his attempt to bring affiliated ball back to Orlando, this time with a little taste of what a new Orlando Yankees (High Class A; Florida State League) ballpark would look like. Gutierrez's plan relies on receiving free land from Orange County at the corner of the Beeline (OK, the BeachLine) and International Drive (specifically, southwest of that intersection), near the Orlando Convention Center, Seaworld and I-4, as well as some other government assistance to build a baseball-themed museum as part of the ballpark complex. Like all ballpark renderings, it looks wonderful. If everything falls into place, the Tampa Yankees could relocate for the 2013 season. And no, there are no plans to include enough room for a spring-training facility as part of the ballpark.

I think that Parade Grounds stadium was just a proposal, there's a soccer one floating around too.

Here's a REALLY little ballpark...the youth stadium at the Cal Ripken complex in Aberdeen, MD. I have no idea what the capacity is, somewhere between 1k and 4k.
