Pelicans Ballpark stays on top stadium experience list

pel-ballparkFor the sixth consecutive season, Stadium Journey included TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark among its rankings for the Top 50 Stadium Experiences in all of sports. The home ballpark of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans placed 38th in all of sports, fifth in Minor League Baseball and tops in the Carolina League. Since the publication began its rankings in 2011, the Pelicans have been in the top 50 in each of the six years.

“TicketReturn.Com Field is a great ballpark and we’re honored to be listed among some of the most notable venues in North America,” said Pelicans general manager Andy Milovich. “We strive to provide the best experience for our fans each and every night. This recognition is a testament to the dedication of every member of our team, from game day personnel to the front office staff.”

The annual Stadium Journey rankings stack each ballpark’s experience up against its own league, Major League Baseball and all of sports. The ranking list is based primarily on the score of their correspondents, known as their FANFARE rating. This is a compilation score consisting of marks for 1) the ballpark’s food & beverage options, 2) the overall atmosphere, 3) the neighborhood around the park, 4) the fans, 5) the access, 6) the overall return on investment, and 7) one category for any extras or special features. They also use the ratings of the site’s readers, known as the “crowd score” as the primary tiebreaker.

The Pelicans received four or five stars in every category, with five stars being the highest mark possible. The club earned five stars for Food & Beverage, Neighborhood, Access and Extras for an overall FANFARE score of 4.5.

In September, Stadium Journey released its rankings of the ballparks in the Carolina League, with the Pelicans receiving a first-place mark in the circuit for the sixth straight season. TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark has also registered a top-eight ranking in all of Minor League Baseball in each of the six seasons the publication has announced its MiLB Ballpark Rankings.

The review for TicketReturn.Com Field at Pelicans Ballpark states that the “Pelicans have done an amazing job of catering to both local die-hards and casual tourists. With the massive variety of food options and many entertainment options, TicketReturn.com Field is easily a premier minor league venue.”

The review concludes that “whether you are a baseball fan or someone who just enjoys a fun night out, it is not hard to enjoy yourself at TicketReturn.com Field. The park provides a little something for everyone, and is just an overall great stadium experience. As anyone who has been there can tell you, Myrtle Beach is a great spot for a vacation, and adding a night out at the ballpark is a no-brainer.”

Over the six years since its initial Top 100 Ranking, the correspondents at Stadium Journey have visited more than 2,300 different venues.
