MLB Players Poll: Toughest Places To Play

What are the toughest parks to play professional baseball, according to the players? Sports Illustrated writes: “Among the 392 current major league players surveyed, 83 (21.2 percent) voted Yankee Stadium (pictured) as the most difficult place to play as a visiting player. The numbers back them up: Since Joe Torre took over as manager in 1996 through 2005, the Yankees are 513-292 (.637) at home in the Bronx, where the fans are close to the field and into the action.” Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigly Field in Chicago rounded out the top three.

Out of the current 30 MLB parks, I have now visited seven of them. 23 more to go.
