Notes: [ Brackets ] denote construction that preceded MLB occupancy by a year or more; teams "inherited" those stadiums later. * For multi-year renovations, the "climactic" year is shown. Stadiums that had been used by a football team or minor league baseball team before a new MLB franchise was established there, or an existing franchise relocated there.
Asterisks * denote shared stadiums, "home away from home," or other anomalies.
[ Brackets ] denote name changes that were later rescinded, reverting to the old name. Names in use for less than a year are not included.
{ Braces } denote name changes that took place after the MLB team had left.
  Year (and month) demolition was completed.
# ! = implosion
