With baseball season just around the corner, Padres fans will be happy to know that Petco Park was named one of the country’s top baseball parks in the country by TripAdvisor.

The travel site ranked stadiums based on its popularity index, and the seaside ballpark secured the no. 7 spot. The 9-year-old stadium is currently being adjusted to shorten the outfield fences, which could mean easier home runs for Padres players.

Here’s the full ranking of TripAdvisor’s top baseball parks in the country:

  1. PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  2. AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
  3. Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland
  4. Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
  5. Busch Stadium, St. Louis, Missouri
  6. Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  7. Petco Park, San Diego, California 
  8. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
  9. Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Arlington, Texas
  10. Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois
