Back in the days of cookie-cutter ballparks, you pretty much knew what to expect when it came to MLB stadium capacity: the multipurpose fields in places like Cincinnati (Riverfront Stadium), Pittsburgh (Three Rivers Stadium), and Philadelphia Phillies (Veterans Stadium) were built for football and baseball and generally seated between 50,000 and 60,000 fans.

Those stadiums all pretty much looked the same, too — big bowls of humanity that served as the theaters for our sporting conquests.

Across the modern baseball landscape, though, there are as many different ballpark configurations and atmospheres as there are ballclubs themselves. Teams and their fans are no longer content to share a field with the local football franchise (and vice versa).

No, going to a baseball game is as much about the experience and ambience of the setting as it is about the action on the field, and each ballpark is built with specific goals in mind.

The ongoing customization and changing shape of our ballparks has impacted the number of fans that each venue can accommodate, too.

In some cases, that choice is by design, with teams in smaller markets often aiming for a more intimate experience that will pack cozy stadiums to the brim on a regular basis.

In more booming markets, older stadiums are often expanded to add seats, and newer parks are designed with the larger populations in mind.

The result is a fairly wide rang of seating capacity among modern parks, ranging from a low of about 35,000 at Progressive Field (Cleveland Indians) to a high of nearly 57,000 at Oakland Coliseum (Oakland Athletics).

The landscape is always changing, too, as teams seem to be on the constant lookout for their next best deal and some ballparks falling out of active use after only a couple of decades (the Atlanta Braves played at Turner Field for an even 20 seasons).

For now, though …

Here is the complete rundown of current MLB stadium capacity, including information about the teams who inhabit those green cathedrals.
