1. A Rooftop-esque scene
There are a number of beautiful ballparks across Major League Baseball, but often times a beautiful ballpark isn’t enough.
For example, the Pittsburgh Pirates play at PNC Park and it’s widely considered one of the best stadiums in baseball, and over the last six or so years the Pirates have been a pretty good team. However, in 2018, they sit at 26th out of 30 teams in total attendance and per game attendance.

What I’m proposing is not a new idea by any means, but it has seemed to have worked wonders in Denver in getting more and more people to the stadium.
The Rooftop deck at Coors field is a new way enjoy a baseball game, and it’s one of the best ideas in a very, very long time. I think if you slap a rooftop-esque party area in the newer stadiums, you can easily increase attendance numbers.
The Yankees installed a “party deck” above Monument Park in Yankee Stadium prior to the 2017 season. While the Yankees have never really had a problem with attendance, they still understood the fact that you need to keep your non baseball-crazed fans engaged. Their tickets are far more expensive for their party deck than the Rockies … but, again, it’s the Yankees.
