BB&T Ballpark, Charlotte

(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.HistoryAn 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.

  • Even if you are not a huge baseball fan you should definitely come to BB&T ballpark. This Stadium is a state of the art ballpark. There is no one bad seat at the ballpark. The fireworks display on the 4th of July is absolutely spectacular.
  • Always a good time and the fireworks are a big plus! Honestly, if it's your first game... consider the shows on Friday so you can stay for the show. It's often better than most holiday celebrations. For fair weather folks, consider the Home Plate Club so you can go in and cool off/warm up (depending on the time of year). You can't really have a bad seat in the stadium so if your budget is tight, go on the less expensive side.
  • Love this park much better than the one in Fort Mill, SC! It's beautiful!
  • One of the nicest and best run stadiums I have ever been to. Thanks!
  • Great atmosphere and not a bad seat in the stadium. If only the drink prices were a little cheaper...
