Magazine Lists Carolina Stadium No. 2 In USA


By Sports Department

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Carolina Stadium has been ranked by Stadium Journey Magazine as the No. 2 college baseball stadium in the country.

The magazine based their rankings on several factors, including: food and beverage in the ballpark, overall atmosphere, the neighborhood, the fans, access (which includes parking, traffic, restrooms, and concourses), return on investment, and an "extras" category for any unique or bonus points.

Stadium Journey Magazine said this about Carolina Stadium, "With the grand opening of the new Carolina Stadium on the 21st of February, 2009, a new standard was born in Columbia. That fateful day, the doors were first opened to the general public to what has become recognized by many as one of the finest college baseball facilities one can visit in the country. An era of high expectations and of dominance has ensued in the following years, as the Gamecocks' sterling home record indicates. Proudly hanging along the opposites side of the great center field wall are the 2010 and 2011 championship banners - the first two national championships of any sport in South Carolina athletics history."

Mississippi State's Dudy Noble Field was named the best stadium in the country by the magazine.
