The Texas Rangers may be the reigning American League Champs, but their field, Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, ranked only 16 in the UFE (Urine Feces Everywhere) Sanitation Ranking. The UFE scale ranks parks from 1-30 with 1 being the dirtiest stadium, leaving the Rangers in the “middle of the pack” group.
Observing the bathroom behavior by the fans of the game, our UFE rep in Texas had this to say; “it was nice to see some sanitation bottles in the entrances of the restroom, but it did not seem like people wanted to use them anyway”.
This could have been caused by the design of the restroom itself, as it leaves a large amount of “hiding” space from view. So if a person was in a stall or at the urinal, he/she could sneak back to their seats without washing their hands fairly easy without being seen by another person in that restroom.
Something that may have just been bad timing and may never happen ever again (but we still need to add it to the over-all score) was the fact that at the concession stand; an employee had gloves on and scratched their back under the shirt. The counter was currently not being visited by a customer, but our team noticed it from a few feet away.
Although the Texas Rangers scored lower than the “other” Texas team, they still scored higher than nearly half of the entire MLB. Good job, but improvements could be made with staff and fans washing.
