For the second year in a row and the fourth time in five years, Parkview Field was ranked as the No. 1 Minor League Baseball ballpark in the country by Stadium Journey, the TinCaps announced Monday.

"Parkview Field has become the success story for all other minor league ballparks to emulate," president and co-Founder of Stadium Journey Paul Swaney said in a release. "The team's commitment to consistent excellence results in an experience that never fails to live up to their well deserved reputation."

The rankings are based on reviews of regional correspondents and are calculated based on food and beverage options, overall atmosphere, surrounding neighborhood, fans, access, return on investment and special features.

Each category is ranked from 1-5. Parkview Field earned a score of 4.7.

"As an organization, we're extremely appreciative of this top ballpark ranking from Stadium Journey," TinCaps president Mike Nutter said. "We know this honor wouldn't be possible without our amazing fans, who make Parkview Field such a special place in our region. It means a lot to receive this ranking from Stadium Journey considering how hard their staff works evaluating venues not only around the country, but the whole world."
