Ask any baseball purist and he'll tell you that the only part of a baseball game that matters is what's on the field. The pitch, the swing, the handling of the ball—everything else takes a backseat to a "real fan."
But that's ridiculous, and anyone who tells you that he doesn't care about what goes on around the game is lying, plain and simple.
After last week's mock Hall of Fame vote inspired a lengthy and serious debate, Bleacher Report's Featured Columnists took a more laid-back approach in this week's poll by looking at some of the more superficial aspects of our national pastime.
For this survey, I asked each FC to name the best ballpark, mascot, logo, uniforms, and team name in baseball (results for "worst" in the same categories will be posted tomorrow). In addition to the full vote totals, each slide includes two or three quick sound bites from the writers explaining the reasons behind their picks.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
Note: I sent this survey only to the Featured Columnists who have been active in previous polls. If you are a new FC or you have changed your mind about wanting to participate, send me a message and I'll be sure to keep you in the loop for next time!
