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.

  • 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.
  • Great ball park and friendly staff. My wife and I stopped by for a game. The staff ask if was our first time at the park and gave us badges to wear. After that every vendor and staff asked us if we were enjoying our stay. Food was upscale for a ball park. I enjoyed chicken Street tacos for 8 bucks and my wife had a chili dog with slaw and it came with a ton of fries for 9 bucks. Go, take the family or date and enjoy the game. I will say avoid the left field corner, view is not great. Could not see the score board.
  • Very nice and clean ball park. Lots of options when it comes to concessions. Staff is friendly. There is a convenient lost & found booth that we utilized after my friend accidentally left her phone in the restroom. Our employer rented the catered bench section, which was very nice.. only thing is I was extremely limited as a vegetarian in what I could eat compared to my carnivorous counterparts - think corn on the cob, potato chips and cookies. Even the potato salad had meat in it.. who does that? They have theme nights, donation/charity nights, etc. Prices are affordable. Ballpark is family friendly.
  • Such a nice ballpark, especially for the minor leagues. Not only do you get to take in the gorgeous city skyline as the backdrop (I highly recommend sitting on the third baseline side) but they also offer tons of gourmet food options and craft beer. The tickets are usually pretty inexpensive, sometimes you can snag an infield ticket for $13-20. I also have to say that for a large venue with lots of people drinking and thus using the restroom facilities a lot, they keep the facilities very clean. Honestly, even if you're not a huge baseball fan the games are super fun to attend as a casual weekend get together with friends - I feel like a large part of that revolves around the park itself.
  • Great place. No bad seats anywhere (except the grass areas). Tickets are not too bad. You can get in for around $12 or so for cheap seats. Decent parking close by. Great view of the city while you watch a game
