SunTrust Park, the newest stadium in MLB, opened in 2017, is the home of the Atlanta Braves.

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

The newest Major League Baseball (MLB) ballpark is SunTrust Park in Cumberland, Georgia, home of the Atlanta Braves, which opened for the 2017 season. Fenway Park in Boston, home of the Boston Red Sox, is the oldest, having opened in 1912.

Ten MLB stadiums do not have corporate naming rights deals: Angel Stadium, 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 where it is located.
