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.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.

  • I work a concession stand there, so it gets pretty busy at times. Lots of nice friendly people. A good place to network, and a great family outing place.
  • Wonderful place. Great staff that helped us around the stadium and to our section. Better experience watching our daughter see her daddy throw the first pitch at a game .
  • Beautiful ballpark with the CLT skyline in the background. Vendors professional and friendly. Good selection of NC beers, but expensive compared to GSO and Durham ballparks. No NC wines. Surrounding neighborhood welcoming.
  • This is home of the Charlotte Knights!!! The Charlotte Knights are the official triple A team for the Chicago White Sox. I have no idea why so many people are huge Charlotte Knights fans because it's a minor league team. But hey, if people enjoy going to the games then that's great for them!!! Also, they are great at hosting parties for kids and it's very fun. Just like any sporting event, the concessions are expensive and buying food and a drink will usually cost over ten dollars. I guess it's not that much if you'r wealthy but if you're not wealthy, it could be a good kick to the wallet. It's still fun to go watch a game but it was more fun watching ACC teams play here. The view is beautiful though because you get to see the city in the background. 5/5 nice stadium.
  • This is a pretty nice stadium uptown. The views of the city skyline are great. The food isn’t anything to rave about, but it’s better than your average stadium food. I was most recently here for the Guts pumpkin carving contest, which could definitely be held in a more open area. The Knights have some good theme nights and giveaway nights so take a look at the calendar if you’re interested in that. It was definitely a good idea to move the stadium uptown. Now it draws decent crowds which is way better than before.
