Ron's Stadium Rankings

Chicago and Toronto at bottom on the list

This was harder than I thought it would be. My first feeling was Cleveland closely followed by Pittsburgh. Then I tried to be a little more scientific with a scoring rating and these are my results.

I believe Ryan won’t be impressed with Wrigley field ranking but first impression are hard to change. The food was probably the hardest to evaluate because I didn’t really eat at all the parks and based my score on what I saw.
