In an SI poll, fans rated the 30 baseball stadiums on 10 different criteria: Affordability, Food, Team Quality, Tradition, Atmosphere, Fan IQ, Hospitality, Promotions, Trafic and the Neighborhood.
The fans rated The K as the 12th best stadium in baseball. That's pretty good. The high score comes primarily from it being rated #1 in affordability, #2 in Hospitality, #7 in promotions (LOVE T-shirt Tuesdays and Fireworks Fridays) and #8 in Food (Sheboygan!)
Fans rated the neighborhood 27th -- besting only the Mets, A's and Marlins (who have a new dowtown stadium coming soon). The Mets and A's are in really crappy neighborhoods. Kansas City was also ranked 19th in traffic getting to the game. I'll note that 7 of the top 10 stadiums for traffic are basically downtown stadiums and most of the top ones for neighborhood are also downtown stadiums.
Great stadium. Bad location. Just sayin'.
