List of Major League Baseball stadiums
The following is a list of Major League Baseball stadiums, sorted by capacity, their locations, their first year of usage and home teams.
All except eleven MLB stadiums (Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Dodger Stadium, Fenway Park, Kauffman Stadium, Marlins Park, Nationals Park, Oakland Coliseum, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Turner Field, Wrigley Field, and Yankee Stadium being the exceptions) have sold the naming rights to their stadiums to corporations. Oakland Coliseum has sold the naming rights previously, but the last naming deal with Overstock was terminated. Turner and Wrigley are named for the individuals and not the corporations; Kauffman is named for Ewing Kauffman who brought baseball back to Kansas City; while Fenway is named for the neighborhood and realty company at the time of ownership. This list will decrease to ten when SunTrust Park opens in 2017 as Turner Field's replacement.

Former stadiums / ballparks
In addition to the current National (NL) and American (AL) leagues, Major League Baseball recognizes four short-lived other leagues as "major" for at least some portion of their histories; three of them played only in the 19th century, while a fourth played two years in the 1910s. These leagues are the American Association (AA), 1882–1891; the Union Association (UA), 1884; the Players' League (PL), 1890; and the Federal League (FL), 1914–1915. This list includes all ballparks that served as regular home fields for teams throughout all six circuits' histories as major leagues.
Although they arguably represented a top-flight quality of play at times, the 19th century National Association of Professional Base Ball Players (NA) and the various 20th century Negro leagues are not considered by MLB to have been "major leagues".
All playing fields are natural grass unless otherwise noted.
- Dodger Stadium was also home to the Los Angeles Angels from 1962–1965.
- Fenway Park was also home to the Boston Braves in part of 1914 and 1915, before they moved into Braves Field.
- Oakland Coliseum opened for the NFL in 1966; the Oakland Athletics have been tenants since 1968.
- Turner Field was originally built as Centennial Olympic Stadium for use during the 1996 Summer Olympics and 1996 Summer Paralympics with the intent to convert it into a baseball-specific stadium immediately following the Games; the reconfiguration was completed on schedule, and the Atlanta Braves became tenants at the beginning of the 1997 season.
- Wrigley Field opened for the Chicago Whales (FL) in 1914; the Chicago Cubs have been tenants since 1916.
