ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Busch Stadium, home of the Cardinals, ranks as the 5th best stadium in the Major Leagues.
That ranking comes from travel website TripAdvisor.com, which based its 2014 list on feedback from MLB fans.
Trip Advisor travel expert Brooke Ferencsik says out of 30 stadiums across the league, Busch Stadium comes in at number five for its views and the great new food offerings rolled out in recent years.
“Sightlines are amazing throughout the park, there isn’t a bad seat,” he says. “People love the concessions. The food there is amazing, and there’s a wide variety of food.”
Ferencsik says the ranking is also in part due to the stadium’s great behind-the-scenes tour offered to visitors.
“They call it baseball heaven for a reason,” he says. “One Trip Advisor traveler and reviewer noted that the tour takes you behind the scenes. You get to see the press box, the private areas, the club areas, the dugout, then on the field.”
If you’re wondering, Pittsburgh’s PNC Park tops the Trip Advisor list, followed by San Francisco, Baltimore and Fenway Park in Boston, then Busch.
And don’t forget, first pitch for the season opener against the Reds in Cincinnati is 3:10 p.m. today, right here on KMOX.
