MLB's largest baseball stadiums, ranked from Yankee to Dodger Stadium (2024)

MLB's largest baseball stadiums, ranked from Yankee to Dodger Stadium (1)

Every ballpark in MLB holds their own unique attributes that make them special. That said, the marvel that a large ballpark with tons of fans can create is special. The atmosphere that comes with enormous crowds can also be special. A key strikeout or home run can see an entire city erupt with the right fans.

Here are the eight biggest stadiums currently active in Major League Baseball based on capacity. All capacity numbers sourced from BetMGM.

30) Oakland Coliseum, Oakland Athletics

Capacity: 56,782 (1st in MLB)

Oakland Coliseum's capacity is a bit of a contentious subject. Everywhere you look will give you different figures as to the stadium's true maximum capacity. Some websites list Oakland Coliseum's capacity at lower than 50,000 "for baseball." Others though, list it as over 63,000. The consensus though appears to be that with the tarps at the top of the stadium removed, the capacity sits at the number listed above: 56,782, making it the biggest stadium in Major League Baseball.

While I would say it's a shame that such a large stadium will be removed from the league after the conclusion of this season, the stadium is so run down and dilapidated that it won't be missed.

Reports indicate that the A's new stadium in Vegas, set to open in 2028, will feature 33,000 seats, a far cry from the crowds the Coliseum can hold. A capacity of 33,000 would rank dead last in MLB. The Cleveland Guardians' stadium, Progressive Field, currently seats 34,830.

27) Chase Field, Arizona Diamondbacks

Capacity: 48,405 (3rd in MLB)

Despite a whole pool section in their stadium, the Arizona Diamondbacks have still found a way to accommodate a very large amount of fans. Of course, that isn't without its drawbacks. Not every seat in the stadium is suitable for an optimal viewing experience. In their ranking of all 30 MLB stadiums, USA Today wrote, "the sightlines aren’t great, and there are way too many seats too far from the field. Better bet: go see the D-backs in March at Salt River Fields, the best of allspring-training facilities."

When your Major League ballpark is considered an inferior viewing experience to your spring training facility, that's not a good sign. Chase Field has many great aspects to enjoy, but it's enormous size appears to be a detriment in some people's eyes.

23) Angel Stadium, Los Angeles Angels

Capacity: 45,517 (7th in MLB)

Despite the stadium's age and the fact that the stadium was never intended to host a football team, Angel Stadium remains one of the biggest stadiums in MLB.

20) Yankee Stadium, New York Yankees

Capacity: 46,537 (6th in MLB)

For a team with a such a large fanbase, you'd think Yankee Stadium would want to harbor more fans. It's still a large stadium, but considering the Yankees' history of going above and beyond, it feels a bit underwhelming when compared to the rest of the league.

That said, Monument Park and the Yankee Museum are certainly great additions that warrant giving up a few extra seats.

9) T-Mobile Park, Seattle Mariners

Capacity: 47,929 (4th in MLB)

For such a massive ballpark, you'd think it would feel incredibly tight or even claustrophobic when the retractable roof is closed to keep the rain out. That doesn't appear to be the case though. USA Today writes, "Even when the roof is closed on rainy days, it’s not claustrophobic, as the area above the left field stands remains open."

That's a massive, massive compliment.

8) Coors Field, Colorado Rockies

Capacity: 46,897 (5th in MLB)

The Rockies made an effort to increase capacity with the addition of The Rooftop in 2014. Despite being very high up, those seats are now considered some of the most desirable at Coors Field, because of the awesome view of the Rocky Mountains that Coors Field offers.

7) Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles Dodgers

Capacity: 56,000 (2nd in MLB)

For such a large, old stadium, you'd think upkeep of the stadium would be near impossible. That might be true. We can't be sure how difficult it actually is to keep Chavez Ravine up and running at top-of-the-line levels. However, the Dodgers have done a tremendous job at doing so. Even with the stadium being over 60 years old, it feels brand new. It also never feels cramped, and at 56,000 seats, that's a remarkable feat.

4) Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore Orioles

Capacity: 44,970 (8th in MLB)

Even with the left field wall moved back considerably in recent years, Camden Yards is still one of the biggest ballparks in MLB, and is widely considered one of the most beautiful as well. The retro look and classic feel continue to draw stellar reviews from fans and visitors alike.

Of every ballpark on this list, Camden Yards might be the smallest, but it has shown an incredible ability to feel massive. When the Orioles are playing well, the entire city can hear it.
