TD Ameritrade Park Omaha and the College World Series Listed as #13 Best Stadium Experience

Stadium Journey Magazine released its 2nd annual list of the best stadium experiences of the past year with TD Ameritrade Park Omaha and the College World Series as #13.

ImageStadium Journey utilizes its FANFARE scale for ranking the stadiums on its website and for the purposes of creating this list. The scale takes into account the food & beverage at the stadium, overall atmosphere, the neighborhood in which it resides, the fans, access outside and inside the stadium, return on investment, and allows for room for "bonus points" for unique features.

Reviews are submitted by Stadium Journey's 80+ contributors, and tiebreakers are settled by a stadium's "Crowd Score," (the average of ratings submitted by members).

Stadium Journey Magazine is a monthly publication, available exclusively on the Stadium Journey website - http://www.stadiumjourney.com/magazine
