Let's face it, going to the ballpark with a kid can turn into quite an ordeal.
Kids play little league and softball, they look up to Major Leaguers as their idols and heroes; they certainly belong at Big League ballparks.
For the parents who are bringing them, though, there are things to consider such as concession stand availability, in between inning entertainment, children play areas for when the game just isn't enough and of course bathrooms. What parent hasn't had to rush a child to the bathroom, after all?
Major League Baseball and all 30 teams do a good job of realizing they need to accommodate parents with the amenities that will allow for an enjoyable experience for parent and child.
Besides, they're building a relationship with these future ticket buyers as well. Remember the old saying "get 'em young and you got 'em for life."
Based on reviews by some of the sports media's best and fans' experiences, I have compiled a list of the top 15 child friendly stadiums.
Disclaimer: I have not personally attended all 30 stadiums and may not be aware of all the amenities that may make one stadium better than one on my list. If you feel like another stadium is more child-friendly than one of these 15, please leave a comment with the information you feel is relevant.
