10. Huntington Park
Huntington Park is a baseball stadium located in the heart of downtown Columbus. The stadium serves as home to the Columbus Clippers, the AAA minor league affiliate to the Cleveland Indians. Having just opened in 2009, Huntington Park is a truly state-of-the-art minor league baseball stadium.
The park was so successful that it was named Ballpark of the Year by Baseballparks.com in 2009, even beating out famed major league parks like Yankee Stadium. The award is given to the stadium that features the best combination of design, attractive site selection and fan amenities. The Left Field Building includes a 110-foot bar with six open patios overlooking the field on the second story. The third story features open air bleachers, similar to those found at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The stadium also occasionally plays home to concerts.
