A few months after Stadium Journey magazine ranked Camden Yards the best ballpark experience in Major League Baseball, the same publication gave a high ranking to the experience at M&T Bank Stadium, too.

The Ravens' home game experience ranked second in the NFL in rankings released last week, behind only the Indianapolis Colts' Lucas Oil Stadium in a ranking system that judges concessions, fans, atmosphere, and more.

In his review of the stadium, correspondent Richard Smith notes the myriad improvements including television screens, improved concessions, and WiFi the team installed in recent years. M&T Bank Stadium scored a five-star rating in food & beverages, atmosphere, fans, access, and extras, while the surrounding neighborhood and return on investment both earned four stars.

The Colts also received five five-star ratings and a 4.7 overall score for their new home, built in 2011, but nonetheless earned the top spot over the Ravens.

In the 2015 baseball rankings, the Orioles scored five stars in every category to lead the league, so even if it's on a technicality, Baltimore sports fans can know that whatever stadium they're spending their time in and money on is the best their league has to offer.
