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.. …

We've got the evidence of a sweaty outing at Thursday's Cardinals-Dodgers game—all to raise money for HavenHouse.
We wanted to share a few pictures of your Friendly Neighborhood Patchers at concession stand No. 150 —behind home plate!— at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the Dodgers (Cards won 7-4). Patch editors from around the St. Louis area were slinging hotdogs, beer and nachos supremes during Thursday's day game. The volunteer effort was the culmination of our Give 5 Day Fundraiser. Regular Patch users may remember the details: We agreed to work a concession stand and donate the charity proceeds to a local nonprofit. We invited users to enter a contest: Sign up for a Patch email newsletter and be entered into a drawing to win proceeds for the non-profit of your choice. Elissa Plastino of Creve Coeur won and directed our donation to …

Patch staff will work a concession at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the L.A. Dodgers, to raise money for charity. Elissa Plastino won our contest to donate the proceeds to her charity of choice. Congrats!
Elissa Plastino, who works in brand marketing for the corporate office of Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. in Creve Coeur, won Patch's Busch Stadium fundraiser contest. But the real winner will be HavenHouse in Creve Coeur, Plastino's choice for where our fundraising dollars go. HavenHouse provides "the comfort of home and a community of support for families traveling to St. Louis" for medical care. Here's what's happening: A group of Patch editors will work a concession stand at Thursday's St. Louis Cardinals game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. We intended to donate a portion of our proceeds (estimated between $1,500 and $2,500) to a local charity. So we had a contest that ended last week: Readers who signed up for a Patch newsletter were …
