Dunkin' Donuts Park has been named the Best Double-A ballpark in America, according to an online poll conducted by Ballpark Digest.

The online voting began May 30 and ended June 20. Dunkin' Donuts Park competed against the 30 Double-A clubs spread across the country in the Eastern League, Texas League and Southern League. The Hartford stadium, home to the Yard Goats, edged out the Altoona Curve's Pennsylvania home ballpark in an online competition at www.ballparkdigest.com, with more than 178,000 fans voting over a period of three weeks.

The Yard Goats, which is a Double-A Eastern League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, moved into their new home this season and have played in front of capacity crowds 15 times. This past weekend, 19,956 fans watched the Yard Goats in Hartford and Dunkin' Donuts Park has been sold out completely in each of the last three weekends (Friday through Sunday) and filled to capacity in 11 of the past 17 home games, Yard Goats General Manager Tim Restall said.
