This urinal trough belongs to the team with the 'dirtiest' park in MLB as voted by UFE.com. Click through the gallery to check out their ratings and comments from cleanest to dirtiest.
No. 30. Cardinals' Busch Stadium: The only park in the ufe.com survey to get an “A” rating? 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.
29. Padres' Petco Park: Their restrooms were clean and they had touchless automatic faucets and large garbage cans by the exits and sinks.
28. Brewers' Miller Park: The Milwaukee Brewers’ fans are rated one of the cleanest group of baseball fans in the MLB by the team at UFE (Urine Feces Everywhere).
27. Astros' Minute Maid Park: The stadium has plenty of wall space in the restrooms covered with soap dispensers and towel dispensers.
26. Pirates' PNC Park: Uses up-to-date technology to keep their restrooms as touch-less and clean as realistically possible. With 99% of females washing their hands, and 76% of males, PNC Park comes in with above-average fan restroom hygiene.
25. Phillies' Citizens Bank Park: Even though the Phillies Park restrooms have too many “touch” areas; toilet flusher, faucet, paper towels, and soap dispensers, their facilities are clean.
24. Rays' Tropicana Field: The restroom was very clean and well built; with optimal spacing between the urinals and sinks.
23. Giants' AT&T Park: The large number of people washing their hands at AT&T Park may be attributed to the fact that their restrooms are filthy and archaic!
22. Nationals' Ball Park: Park is overall clean and fans rated higher than 80% for fans that wash their hands.
21. Red Sox Fenway Park: Even though it’s a century old, Fenway uses modern technology to keep itself up to today’s hygiene standards. There was no restroom door to avoid touching on the way in or out, and the toilets and garbage cans were hands-free.
20. Tigers' Comerica Park: Washrooms are not updated to protect the fans from the spread of urine and feces and the food handling is spreading even more.
19. Royals Kauffman Stadium: Most notably was the fact that the restroom exit was in a place where an individual could bypass the sink and head back to their seat without washing their hands. On the plus side, the condiments seemed to be kept very clean t
18. Blue Jays' Rogers Centre: They had the basic UFE violations that most of the parks had, yet kept up a cleaner appearance. They were marked down more than the other close ranking parks for hand washing.
17. Angels' Anaheim Stadium: With all of the changes and restorations that this stadium has been through one might think that improvements would have been created to promote a cleaner environment for its fans.
16. Rangers' Ballpark in Arlington: UFE rep in Texas had this to say; “it was nice to see some sanitation bottles in the entrances of the restroom, but it didn’t seem like people wanted to use them anyway.”
15. Braves' Turner Field: The restrooms were fairly clean, but the sink/stall ratio was not too great.
14. Twins' Target FIeld: The one thing that really caught the attention of UFE team was the concession stands, which were nasty.
13. D-Backs' Chase Field: The UFE Team found fault with the design of the restrooms. The entire restroom bottlenecks at the sinks, located at the washroom exit. This caused a pile up of people where there were far too few sinks to accommodate the many to
When boxing comes to The Cell in August, the ring will sit between home plate and the stands.
11. Orioles' Camden Yards: Oriole Park was reported to be visually clean in all areas, restrooms, concessions, condiments, etc.. The problem was that many of their fans do not wash their hands after using the facilities.
10. Mets' CIti FIeld: Some of the evidence that UFE found came in the form of trash being left on top of things other than in garbage cans.
9. Mariners' Safeco Field: As beautiful as Safeco Park is on the outside, it is equally as dirty on the inside. Several UFE violations were reported, such as cross contamination of food, i.e. touching raw meat then pouring a fan a beer without changing gl
8. Marlins Park: A cool feature that we found was a “waterless urinal” which is great if you want to go “green”, but in reality, it kept the urine odor around and pushed some men towards the stalls.
7. Yankees Stadium: While the restrooms do offer automatic faucets, their distance from the basin makes hand-washing awkward and inconvenient. The soap dispenser and paper towel dispenser both required manual operation.
6. Rockies Coors Field: We found it odd that a park built in 1995 would have trough sinks in the restrooms, but there they were there. Trough sinks, like trough toilets, spray contagions several feet out and around the trough where patrons are standing an
5. Reds' Great American Ball Park: The woman at the ball park had a perfect score for hand washing in the restroom. The men were just 54%.
4. Athletics' Coliseum: One of only three teams, along with the Cubs and Dodgers, to have urinal troughs in the men’s restroom.
3. Indians' Progressive Field: The restrooms were far from hands-free, using a push door and manual sinks and dispensers. The restrooms were extremely small and cramped, and the design and layout of the restroom favored exiting the restroom before washing
2. Dodgers Stadium: The restrooms are cramped, poorly lit cubby holes that scream at you to get out of there as soon as you can. Dodgers Stadium is one of only three MLB stadiums that still have urinal troughs.
1. Cubs' Wrigley Field: A whopping 79 percent of men failed to wash their hands after using restroom. There were many times that a vendor (both mobile and stationary) lacked appropriate handling gloves whiles serving food and beverage.
