Here are the seeds for the MiLB High-A ballpark vote. We're now back to traditional league names, so the High-A lineup contains most of the former Low-A Midwest League, several former Low-A Sally League teams, some former Carolina League teams, and several former Short Season A Northwest League and NY-Penn League teams comprising the new Midwest League, South Atlantic (Sally) League and Northwest League. Of this new lineup, only the former Carolina League teams competed at the High-A level in prior years: many California League and the Florida State League teams were dropped to Low-A status.
This isn’t the result of a formal grading system, but rather recommendations based on years of attending games, seeing how the ballparks function behind the scenes, how these ballparks have made an impact in their communities, performances in previous Best of the Ballparks competitions, and noting how ballparks are regarded within the industry. One of the reasons we love working in baseball is that many industry folks, including many on the player side, are ballpark geeks, and we think this list reflects broad sentiment among those who know ballparks best. This is a wide-open competition. Last year's winner, Maimonides Park (Brooklyn Cyclones), is the #1 seed, followed by 2021's runner-up, Four Winds Field (South Bend Cubs). Here is our High-A ranking for 2022:
