The Roosevelts compiled ratings from Yelp and determined that, according to the review site, Citi Field is the 16th most popular ballpark in baseball. Yankees Stadium checks in at 15.
"The fact that Yankee Stadium is ranked higher than Citi Field is completely absurd," says the list's author, Stephen Gebhardt. "I’m a Yankee fan, but if you want to visit a great ballpark choose Citi Field every time."
This is common. I hear this from Yankees fans all of the time. It leaves me wondering how life will be like in Citi Field if the Mets ever get to October and put a winning atmosphere at the center of their ballpark. Right now, the focus is the building and the food. It often seems like baseball is the last thing on any one's mind. I look forward to a day when it is the other way around.
