BB&T Ballpark, Charlotte

4.7
BB&T Ballpark is a baseball stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Uptown-area stadium hosts the Charlotte Knights, a Triple-A minor league baseball team in the International League.
An Uptown stadium for the Knights had been a long-running saga in Charlotte, occasionally the subject of contentious debate. Since the dawn of the new millennium, the Knights had consistently had the worst attendance in the International League. Their stadium at the time, Knights Stadium, was located in Fort Mill, South Carolina, 30 minutes south of Uptown Charlotte. Many fans were unwilling to brave the traffic on Interstate 77 to get there.
The project had been repeatedly blocked by Jerry Reese, a Charlotte lawyer who claims the land swap is illegal. Reese has ambitions to move a Major League Baseball team to Charlotte and views a Triple-A sized stadium for the Knights as a detriment.
In August 2006 the stadium became the source of more debate, as Mecklenburg County commission chairman Parks Helms said he would stall an arts project until the Charlotte City Council looked at a proposal he backed to bring baseball to Uptown.

  • Oh my goodness! This is the best ballpark! They have something for everyone. And the food... It is great! It's not your regular ballpark food. I was expecting very high prices but they are very reasonable. It's really a great place to spend a Friday night with the family. Check it out, you will be very happy you did!
  • First time at the Charlotte Knights. Really nice park. All the site lines seemed good. I saw,dome good baseball. Highly recommend a night out at BB&T Ballpark.
  • Loved the game. Soundboard operator was great, game was exciting and close, beautiful place to spend an evening in the springtime. Facilities are new and fancy, you could hardly tell this is minor league.
  • This is an amazing place to watch a game! I loved the downtown location and the great sight lines. There was also a great craft beer selection.
  • Awesome venue. The field was tremendous, seating was comfortable, and the staff were incredibly friendly. I had a great experience and I can't wait to see another game.
