I like the idea of a 30,000 seat stadium. The days are gone of 40k+ baseball stadiums. Arizona is already wanting to downsize

30k would be the next to smallest in the league. Our current stadium is about the average size today.
Going that small would be a mistake.


Post 2000 they're all built at 37-45k
Before 2000 back to the 1980s built ones the current stadiums remaining are all 37-50k

So the size went down a little but not much
Arizona built what is today the 4th largest. They could downsize by 20% and build at 38k and match the current trend

Since 2010-
Arlington's will be 40k
Atlanta built 41k
Miami 36k
Minneapolis 38k

Miami's old stadium was roughly the same capacity
Atlanta moved down from 49k. so they dropped by ~20%
Arlington's current is 43k

The biggest change was Minneapolis moving from 55k. But they moved to around the 40k point in response

Sounds like they are supposed to use a minor league field. Omaha there they go?

Omaha, Wichita or Springdale. STL already took Springfield.

They are all within about 25 miles of each other in distance. Supposed to be a facility within 100 miles. STL had to get an exception because there was nothing closer. I'm sure KC won't be the only other one.
