BB&T Ballpark, Charlotte
(4.6/5 based on 460+ 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 been a last place team in the International League in terms of attendance while playing at Knights Stadium in Fort Mill, South Carolina. The old stadium was located 30 minutes south of Uptown Charlotte, and many fans were unwilling to brave the infamous 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.

  • AAA baseball team in the heart of uptown Charlotte. Easy to walk to if your staying uptown.and do not want to pay for street parking. It is just a couple of blocka away from the Panthers stadium (bank...  more »
  • There was no game on for my visit, but I went and walked around on Sunday afternoon. This place is well laid out, lots of food concessions serving "comfort food". I like this place, great for families...  more »
  • I opposed building this ballpark, as I liked the old Knights' Castle, but I must admit that this is a top-notch facility and a great place to see a ball game. Parking is plentiful and close and entry ...  more »

  • The Home Pate club is so much fun and a nice getaway during the heat. $25 tickets are not bad (for section 112) and I believe the organization does a great job with the entertainment aspect of going to a home game. You really can't have a bad seat in this stadium so if price is a concern, go on the less expensive side, you won't be disappointed. The box office folks are very friendly and always willing to help with seat selection. Nothing but positive experiences when calling them and great customer service!
  • One of the nicest parks in minor league baseball. Love the view of Charlotte from the seats. You need to go to a night game to really appreciate the view when the lights are illuminating the city. The employees are friendly and the fans are too even if you are rooting for the other team. I have been to 25 different cities this season and the Charlotte ballpark is only second in my experience to Pensacola and it was close. Must see!
  • Best ballpark in the minor leagues. The staff is friendly & seem genuinely interested in making sure you have a great experience from the minute you walk in. Great place for everything from a family night with the kids to a group business outing.
  • Awesome place! This is one of the best Minor League ballparks in the country. Went to a Knights vs. Braves game and the Braves won (Go Gwinnett!) so naturally it was a ton of fun. Awesome city views also.
  • Love this venue. It is absolutely in the most perfect location. Sitting on the Third base line is the best spot considering the Queen City skyline is right in front of you and great for memorable pictures. Sometimes you forget you're at a baseball game and spend more time taking pictures of the sunset hitting the City back drop.
