How The UFE Team Rated The 30 MLB Stadiums
The UFE ( Urine/Feces Everywhere) Team, visited all 30 Major League Baseball parks to grade each one on cleanliness standards. From the moment the Team entered through the antiquated turnstiles (more about the turnstiles later), until the moment it exited the park, the UFE Team evaluated each stadium. Through thorough study of the restrooms, facilities, vendors, and fans, using over 79 different criteria, the UFE Team ranked and rated all 30 Major League Baseball parks according to Urine/ Feces Everywhere cleanliness standards.
One major area of study was the restrooms. The team took a critical look at the restroom habits of both men and women attending the stadium. Did the fans wash their hands after going to the restroom? Have the ballparks done all they can to encourage hand washing? Does the design of the stadium restroom facilities encourage or discourage proper hand washing by the fans after using the facilities, or does the stadium staff take a blind eye to the happenings in the restroom? For a ballpark restroom to meet top UFE standards, it needs to be 100% touch-less: touch-less soap dispensers, towel ,dispensers, doors, and flushing mechanisms. Remember, we say urine/,feces, but there are many other contagions (fluids, bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.) that we won’t mention. The UFE mantra is Remember to touch only where no man has touched before. How close does each stadium come to reaching that hands-free goal? Surely some of the new parks are designed to reach that goal, right? You would be surprised!
