Asheville's own McCormick Field needs your vote.
USA Today is running a contest for the best minor league ballfield in America, and McCormick Field is one of those parks.
You can vote once per day, without registering or anything.
Rick Rice is the booming voice you hear over the PA system at McCormick Field. He also is my colleague here at Radio Ranch. Here's what he wrote on his blog:
I've seen a lot of baseball games in my life, mostly in minor league ballparks. Over 1,000 by my count. And while the cathedrals of the major leagues have more amenities and star power, I'll take the intimate parks that host the future stars of the game.
There's something to be said of a small stadium with a lot of history, like McCormick Field, with its character, great sightlines, good food, reasonable prices, and amazing tree filled backdrop behind the outfield wall. Oh yeah, the outfield wall. Down the right field line, it's not even 300 feet. But what it lacks in distance from the plate, it makes up for in height, and it soars 36 high (just a few shorter than Boston's Green Monster at Fenway).
