Six Major League Ballparks are LEED-certified in various aspects of their operations, such as water and energy efficiency, materials and resources conservation, innovation in interior and exterior design, and location and transportation enhancements.

Two Major League Spring Training Facilities are LEED-certified, including Salt River Fields at Talking Stick (home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies) and FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches (home of the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals). Salt River Fields at Talking Stick was the first LEED Gold sports venue of its kind in the U.S. when it opened in 2011.
