The organization, Urine Feces Everywhere examined every park in MLB.
As if Cardinals fans need another reason for total disdain of the Chicago Cubs, the Cubbies' Wrigley Field was recently dubbed the least sanitary stadium in all Major League Baseball. The Cardinals' Busch Stadium is the "Best of the Best." That's according to the website, UFE.com (Urine Feces Everywhere). The site had glowing remarks about Busch Stadium fans. "What can you say about Busch Stadium when you consider that it was the only park in our survey to get an “A” rating? One hundred percent of the women wash their hands in the restroom, and the men aren’t too shabby when it comes to restroom hygiene, either. Busch Stadium is one of the few parks that the UFE Team would feel comfortable shaking another fan’s hand." On the other hand.. …

Bogard's attorney declined further comment on the case when reached by phone Thursday afternoon.

Relief work by seniors Nick Beaulick and Spencer Beyersdorfer, along with skillful baserunning, help Bombers hold off Rams for 4-2 win.
Maybe it was the immense excitement of playing at the home of the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, or maybe it was because the opposing starting pitcher was absolutely dynamite at the start of the game. But whatever the reason, it was clear the John Burroughs varsity baseball team just wasn't its usual self for the first half of Sunday's Busch Stadium Showdown game against archrival MICDS. Fortunately though, the fifth inning came and the Bombers finally woke up and delivered some of the scintillating defense and baserunning they'd shown all season, and eventually overtook the overheated Rams, for a 4-2 win that was extremely satisfying to head coach Andy Katzman. "I tell you, that felt good," Katzman said, after sharing hugs …
