SunTrust Park, the newest stadium in Major League Baseball, scheduled to open in 2017. It is the new home of the Atlanta Braves.

The following is a list of Major League Baseball stadiums, sorted by capacity, their locations, their first year of usage and home teams.

The newest MLB stadium is SunTrust Park in Cumberland, Georgia, home of the Atlanta Braves, which opens for the 2017 season. Fenway Park in Boston, home of the Boston Red Sox, is the oldest, having opened in 1912.

All except ten MLB stadiums have corporate names through naming rights deals. The exceptions are Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Dodger Stadium, Fenway Park, Kauffman Stadium, Marlins Park, Nationals Park, Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Wrigley Field, and Yankee Stadium. Wrigley Field is named for former Chicago Cubs owner William Wrigley Jr. and not the Wrigley Company; Kauffman Stadium is named for original Kansas City Royals owner Ewing Kauffman, who brought baseball back to Kansas City; and Fenway Park is named for the Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood of Boston it is located in.
