South Alabama's Stanky Field is a hidden gem in college baseball.


Off The Top Of My Head


Ahoy there StitchHeads. Lots of good stuff in the college baseball world headed our way this weekend, kicking off tonight with the top 25 battle between South Carolina and Florida. This weekend also brings us both Earth Day and Record Store Day, both occurring on Saturday, April 22nd. So I say support your local planet and support your local independent record retailer.

Last weekend while I was at South Alabama for the Jags’ series with Coastal Carolina, I posted on twitter (@Stitch_Head) that Stanky Field – a name of which I love – was one of the better underrated unknown ball parks in the country. I even mentioned that if I was ever going to make a top five list of parks like that it would be on it.

Well that got me thinking, how about doing a list of underrated/unknown parks that people should know about. But instead of a top five, I just decided to go ahead and expand it to nine. I figured there were a couple more out there who deserved some props. So here we go…

These on-campus baseball stadiums might be a little off the beaten path and don’t get a lot of publicity, yet they are some of the best facilities in the country that you probably don’t know about.
