There’s a cliche I often hear when someone describes a baseball venue: “There’s not a bad seat in the house.” If any ballpark could make that claim, it might be Kauffman Stadium. In my opinion, this is the most underrated ballpark in the country. The field is immaculate and the interior of the stadium just received a beautiful face lift.

Although it opened in 1973, I love everything about this place. The fans are knowledgeable and passionate, even after decades of terrible teams. The vertical scoreboard topped with a crown is certainly a unique feature. Of course, majestic fountains fill the outfield and erupt between innings to add another fun element to this stadium.

If this park was located in downtown Kansas City, it would certainly be number one on my list. However, it’s a few miles out of town, surrounded by parking lots, highways and Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Chiefs.
