McCormick field named one of ten best minor league ballparks

From the Asheville Tourists:

ASHEVILLE, NC—In the Best Minor League Ballpark category chosen by the readers of USA TODAY and 10Best Readers’ Choice, McCormick Field was named one of the ten winners from 20 nominated stadiums. McCormick Field received enough votes from the public to achieve this prominent recognition. All ten winners will be promoted in USA TODAY.

Throughout the United States and Canada, there are 160 Minor League Ballparks and McCormick Field earned its nomination by being carefully chosen from a panel of relevant experts; which includes a combination of editors from USA TODAY; editors from; and relevant expert contributors in the field. The home of the Asheville Tourists was constructed in 1924 and even with multiple renovations; the ballpark still possesses its historic luster and rich history.

“This stadium’s allure, history, and distinctive traits can be attributed to several factors,” said Tourists President Brian DeWine. “However, nothing has contributed more to this ballpark than the Asheville community and Tourists fans who have made this place so special over the last 89 years.”
