ESPN is currently running a contest where site users choose their favorite ballparks. It is a head to head bracket style voting. Target Field is currently winning by the largest margin (at least when I voted). It is up against Oakland co. Coliseum. When I voted it was 92% TF to 8% O.co.

Here is a link to vote:

Edit: Camden Yards was also beating Rogers Center 92% to 8%.

Camden Yards, PNC Park, and Target are my favorites.

I'd guess that's more a vote against Oakland than a vote for TF. Later rounds will be interesting.

FWIW I've had generally good experiences at Oakland's ballpark. Not sure why it gets so much hate.

I've always said TF reminds me a lot of Wrigley. Wrigley is worth the trip.

Target Field is up against Camden Yards in a tough Elite Eight battle. Camden Yards is up big at this point. It would have to be a miracle comeback for Target Field.

Target Field is awesome. But, I wish they'd replant those beautiful trees.

Unfortunately, Miller Park is going to beat PNC. Brewer fans have been ballot stuffing. Miller isn't even a top 10 park in baseball and for some reason it's beating the best one.

I made mention in the comments section of ESPN about Brewers fans stuffing ballots. A few Brewers fans who probably assumed I was a Pirates fan told me to stop whining LOL. I'm OK with TF getting beat by Camden Yards but Miller beating PNC is preposeterous.

Its not like the Brewers have a huge fan base (by huge I mean top 5) but they have a way of coming out and voting in large numbers for these sorts of things. Last year, that catch by Revere was "best of the best" for a long time until a play by Ryan Braun knocked him off. The play by Braun was great but no way should have beat Revere's catch. Just another example of Ballot stuffing.

How does Miller Park barely beat Dodger Stadium, but not get absolutely trounced by PNC?

Miller Park is going to win and that upset me. I disliked Miller Park in the couple of games that I was there for a game. It feels like an airplane hanger.

Wisconsin sports fans are a sad bunch.
