The organization, Urine Feces Everywhere examined every park in MLB.
As if Cardinals fans need another reason for total disdain of the Chicago Cubs, the Cubbies' Wrigley Field was recently dubbed the least sanitary stadium in all Major League Baseball. The Cardinals' Busch Stadium is the "Best of the Best." That's according to the website, UFE.com (Urine Feces Everywhere). The site had glowing remarks about Busch Stadium fans.

One hundred percent of the women wash their hands in the restroom, and the men aren’t too shabby when it comes to restroom hygiene, either. Busch Stadium is one of the few parks that the UFE Team would feel comfortable shaking another fan’s hand." On the other hand.. …

St. Louis Cardinal fans’ excitement can help carry their team to an 11th World Series title. However, it also can lead to scams that cost them big money. “Sports fans can get burned by purchasing counterfeit tickets or paying in advance for tickets that never arrive,” said Michelle L. Corey in a statement issued by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Corey is the president and CEO of the organization, which warns consumers against scams and fraud. The secondary market for sports and entertainment tickets is a $10 billion a year industry.
