ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) -- With the 2013 MLB season kicking off on March 31, TripAdvisor has released its list of "America's Top 10 Ballparks". For Rangers fans, it's good news.
The travel site ranked Rangers Ballpark in Arlington as the ninth best ballpark in the U.S. Here's what they had to say about the Arlington venue.
With an asymmetrical natural grass field, this 270-acre sports complex was designed to resemble the iconic ballparks of the early 20th century. Travelers will enjoy state-of-the-art amenities, as the stadium features a premium sound system equipped with 1,200 speakers throughout the venue. A TripAdvisor traveler noted, "It is one of the few stadiums that have tried to make you feel like the old time major league stadium still exists."
PNC Park in Pittsburgh led the way, while AT&T Park in San Francisco and Oriole Park at Camden Yards rounded out the top 3.
