Petco Park

Petco Park is located in San Diego California and is home to the San Diego Padres.  This park ranks number 5 on my MLB list because of the setting it’s in and the modern aspect of it.  It is a relatively new MLB stadium being built in 2004.  The setting is the best part of Petco Park because it’s right in the heart of the San Diego downtown overlooking the skyscrapers.  It’s another smaller park being at a capacity of 40,162.  This park is one of the most technologically advanced parks in Major League Baseball.   Fan Support isn’t always the best but it still ranks high because of the all of the other nice factors.
