    Busch Stadium....

    Pricey, but best fan IQ in all of baseball, great atmosphere, great tradition, great midwestern hospitality. Sounds about right to me.

      Tropicana fiield was dead on, the only thing that sucks is that they said traffic was only 11th. Come on an opening day or weekend yanks or sox game and see how great traffic is. Overall its true, its cheap, the food is decent, the neighborhood is boring, and the fans aren't baseball savey. Sometimes I wish I lived in a st. louis where the fans knew what they were talking about.
      The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

        Any poll that puts Kauffman and U.S. Cellular ahead of Wrigley, Fenway, YS, Camden and AT&T is flawed IMO.

        How could the Rays have more tradition than the Marlins?

          3 Uniforms technically, a man who hit his 3,000 hit with the team, and that great pick up a few years ago, greg vaughn!

            The beautiful Kauffman Stadium belongs in the upper-tier of American ballparks.

              Cubs are ranked better than Cardinals in Tradition? That's odd. That Cardinals have a much better winning tradition. 10 WS Wins. Unless they are ranking it on the ballpark, in which of course Wrigley has been around MUCH longer.

                I can't remember his name off the top of my head, but don't forget about the guy who threw a bat at an umpire.

                    how does the Red Sox have more tradition than the Yankees....26 world championships and legends like Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle...me thinks the Yankees deserve #1 in terms of tradition

                      They said tradition.


                      Losing tradition is still tradition...

                        But I still think that the Cards have more of a winning tradition than the Cubs do a losing tradition.

                        I also agree, the Yankees should be number 1 in tradition over the Red Sox. And I hate the Yankees more than the Red Sox.

                            Great to see Detroit ranked so high. That is just a beautiful ballpark. It's a great franchise loaded with tradition and a beautiful baseball palace to play in.

                              Gotta love the Phils coming in at 30th in Hospitality, haha. I will admit that there are some rowdies at the games but it's mostly boneheads who don't realize it's not an Eagles game. I'm happy with the 7th ranking though in IQ and atmosphere. Anyone who has been to CBP in the last 2 years knows that the games have become much more of an "event" than in years past, and while we may still boo, the fans do know their stuff.

                              However, the only things you could justifiably rank in a survey like this is cost and team performance since those have numbers backing them up. Everything else is subjective in my book. I mean, did the Dodgers just miss getting the 17 spot in the Fan IQ because an average of 39 less fans per game applaud a sacrifice bunt than in San Francisco? Ahhhh, the beauty of fan surveys!
