Fenway Park Beats Camden Yards in AL East Matchup

This one was no contest as Fenway Park, the American League's No. 1 seed, easily defeated Wild Card Round winner Camden Yards.

History won the day here, with zach_mills' comments summing up many Fenway fans' thoughts: "I've been to both Camden and Fenway; both are good, but the living, breathing history you soak up as you look around at Fenway cannot be beat."

Camden Yards is still one of the game's best stadiums, however, even if it didn't advance to the next round.

"Oriole Park at Camden Yards is what every other ballpark wishes it could be," cliffmartin wrote.

That may be so, but Fenway cruised to victory here and unsurprisingly finds itself in the ALCS.

            

T-Mobile Park Defeats Target in Battle of 21st-Century Fields

One couldn't really go wrong choosing either stadium since both are among MLB's best. Seattle's T-Mobile Park ultimately won by 400 votes.

"T-Mobile Park is the perfect ballpark for a baseball game!" DevilsDawgsTyd21 wrote. "If you haven't been there, get there!"

Others strongly backed Target Field, however, with BIGMT11 calling it a top-three MLB stadium.

In the end, Seattle moved on to the ALCS, where it will look to top the heavy favorite in Fenway Park.

          

Oracle Over PNC in Matchup Between Two Parks With Great Views

If you're combining every single factor when grading ballparks, then one could easily land on Oracle Park and PNC Park as the two best for a litany of reasons, perhaps none more telling than the amazing sight lines and views at the stadiums.

"Shame PNC was matched against Oracle, they're my top two picks," Zealin wrote.

"PNC and Oracle are the top two parks in the major leagues," bucsbaseball10 said. "Won't be surprised if whoever moves on wins best park. Go Bucs!"

One park had to go home a loser, however, and that was PNC. Oracle moves on to the NLCS by 700 votes.

    

Wrigley Topples Truist Park in No-Contest

Wrigley Field seemed like a shoo-in to reach the National League Championship Series before the tournament started, and that's where the Chicago Cubs' park finds itself after beating the Atlanta Braves' Truist Park by 900 votes.

Even St. Louis Cardinals fans had to admit the Cubs' park is up there with any other in the game.

"Big Cards fan," EcL wrote. "Hate the Cubs, but Wrigley is everything right about baseball."

Truist Park, which opened for business in 2017, did receive some notable support, though.

"Wrigley will win just because of the awesome history and nostalgia but Truist is the future of baseball," BankyEdwards wrote.

Perhaps that's the case. But for now, the past reigns over the future with Wrigley moving on to face a formidable NLCS opponent in Oracle Park.
