my personal opinion is that jack brown and corbett are two top fields in the state i think they are kept very well.

baseball wrote:Enderlin's field was just awesome.  Trains going past the outfield walls and a highway down the first base line.  I would say its better than Jack Brown just becasue of where its placed.


Enderlin's field is nice, but it is also used as a football field I believe (it's been several years since I've been there).  That takes away some of the "baseball feel", in my opinion.  I did like the train tracks out beyond the fence in right field and the highway that practically hangs over the 1st Base line.

I'd have to say Jack Brown Stadium is the best ballpark in the state.  The ivy on the outfield walls makes it look great!  Newman Outdoor Field in Fargo is pretty good looking too.

The best playing field I've ever played on is Jack Williams.  The field is very well kept.

[font=times new roman]In my opinion, the best field in the state is Aafedt Stadium in Williston.  Has a great atmosphere and a great place to play.  I heard that they are putting in a warning track after the high school season and since the state legion is Williston I expect it to be the nicest field in the state.  Jack Brown in Jamestown is very nice.  Mandan's newly renovated field is very nice as well.  I can't wait to go to Williston for the state tournament and see what kind of shape that is in.[/font]

Williston, Minot, Jamestown & Mandan easily.

But Fargo has the nicest infield when its fixed up.

Jack Brown, Enderlin, Williston are sweet stadiums. I've also always had a soft spot for the Kulm Gopher hole.

Williston, Minot, and Mandan have the best fields in the state i believe with Bismarck by far having the worst field.

Bismarck probly has the worst "Class A" field, but not worst in the state.  There are so many gruesome class b fields.

Mayville's field should look pretty interesting for the state class B legion tournament as there are plans to replace the traditional dirt baselines with sod and add warning tracks around the bullpen areas.

Enderlin?  Sure, it's a nice park, but it's way too shallow for baseball.

Lisbon and Langdon both have nice fields.  Lisbon's field gets awfully deep in left-center.  Langdon has hosted a couple state legion tournaments.

Jack Brown Stadium by far is the best field in the state.  Minot has the best playing surface, but Jack Brown Stadium is the best field.  The atmosphere and in the summer the ivy in right field it is the best hands down.

Yeah the ivy at Jack Brown is the best by far, considering they are the only ones with ivy besides municipal, and the ivy at Muni is basically weeds.

Growing up I always liked the field in Hettinger.  The lake, Mirror Lake, and the games I remeber really are what make it special.  Saw(heard) a ball drop in the lake at about  2AM for for a game winning HR in extra innings.  Watched a kid who called time out to ask the coach if could just bunt hit a HR, 1st of his life.

 


wow that must have been a bomb!:shock: that lake is out there pretty far so that would be real cool to her a kerplunk at 2 am. expecially cuz the kid must have ripped the ball. stuff like that makes fields real cool.
