I'll try the stadium in Rochester (or is it Syracuse?) used to film The Natural and home to a AAA team.

Maybe the minor league stadiums in Richmond and a final guess - Pawtucket.

I'll guess Civic Stadium in Portland, home of the "Battered Bastards of Baseball."

I do recommend the film if you have Netflix streaming. Great story of Dartmouth grad Bing Russell (Kurt's dad) buying a minor league team. About as close to a real-life "Major League" as its going to get.

Civic Stadium is not correct, but it does have the distinction of being the largest (former, since destroyed by fire) stadium with a high school team as a tenant.

I'll give you the answer for the largest non-MLB stadium and you can probably then correctly guess the second largest. The largest non-MLB stadium is Howard J Lamade Stadium (40,000) which houses the Little League World Series. Therefore, the next largest non-MLB stadium is. . . .

TD Ameritrade Stadium in Omaha used for CWS holds 30,000+.

Is there a Pony League stadium?

Excellent guess. TD Ameritrade Stadium is the correct answer as the second largest baseball stadium with a current tenant which is not an MLB team.

I thought that Lamade Stadium and Ameritrade Stadium were answers which could have been logically guessed because their tenants are unique, non-minor league, entities.

I just wanted to get a plug in for "Battered Bastards of Baseball."

Although Civic Stadium *did* look pretty big in the movie.

I believe that was Buffalo, the other AAA New York team, but the stadium has long since been replaced.
