Ticket sales website ranked all MLB stadiums based on atmosphere, food and bathrooms, and PNC Park was named the No. 1 atmosphere in the MLB.

The rankings are a result of a survey of almost 8,000 MLB fans ranking stadiums they've visited on a scale of one to five.

PNC Park's atmosphere was rated a 4.7, narrowly edging out the Padres' PetCo Park and Giants' Oracle Park, each of which received a 4.6 rating for atmosphere.

"If someone is going to their first game at PNC Park, it should almost be required that they sit on the 3rd baseline so that they can see the field with the city skyline in the background," SeatGeek said in its stadium guide for PNC Park.

The Athletics' RingCentral Coliseum was ranked the worst atmosphere in the league with a 3.0 rating.

PNC Park's food was given a rating of 3.9, putting them in a five-way tie for eighth place with the Orioles' Camden Yards, Brewers' Miller Park, Twins' Target Field and the Braves' SunTrust Park, with SeatGeek citing Primanti's and I.C. Light in the PNC Park ratings.

"The Primanti Brothers sandwiches are better in PNC Park than they are anywhere else," SeatGeek said in the stadium guide.

The White Sox's Guaranteed Rate Field was ranked No. 1 for food, with reviews of the park's hot dogs and deep dish pizza. The Blue Jays' Rogers Centre took last place.

PNC Park's bathrooms were given a 3.8 rating, ranking them No. 17 in the league. The Athletics' RingCentral Coliseum was again ranked last in this category, with a rating of 2.7. The Braves' SunTrust Park has the coveted distinction of having the best bathrooms in the league, with a solid 4.2 rating.
