The second largest stadium in the SEC, Neyland Stadium, is also one of the largest in the world. A stadium that started at a humble capacity of 3,200 has now grown to seat over 102,000. But it's not always the seats or the field that make a stadium the most impressive. Sometimes, it's those who care for the field. At the University of Tennessee much of the field staff are students in the school's Turf Grass program. I got the chance to talk to Darren Seybold, the Director of Sport Surfaces at the University of Tennessee. We talked not only about the amazing field, but the amazing people who maintain it.

The Cape Cod League is considered by many baseball people to be the premier summer collegiate league in the country. One out of every seven major leaguers today spent some time on the Cape during their college years. The Cape League, which is partially funded by MLB, has roots that trace back all the way to the 1880's. The modern version of the league dates back to the 1940's, and has been the subject of many books over the years, as well as a movie or two. All the teams on Cape Cod enjoy strong ties with their communities and local businesses. Players travel from all corners of the country to play in the Cape League, spending the summer living with local families and working part time jobs during the day.
Stadium Journey visited all 10 Cape Cod League teams during the 2014 season, and we rank the various ballpark experiences here. Facilities are scored according to our FANFARE rating scale. Ties are broken by crowd ratings, and if still tied, internal discussions were held to break them. We now present to you Stadium Journey's 2014 ranking of the Cape Cod Baseball League's ballparks.
