Few would argue against the thought that October is Heaven for baseball fans, and the intensity reaches new heights as each and every team is fighting for the World Series crown.  Fans pack the stadiums snug while the noise level follows suit, and the players feed off of the electricity surrounding them.    

Here are the two best Postseason atmospheres in baseball today.

After 108 consecutive seasons without winning a World Series title, it was no wonder why Cubs fan were so intense these past two Octobers. The environment was pressure-packed, to say the least. It had been over a century since the south side of Chi-Town had a winner in the “Cubbies”, and every single hopeful fan in “The Friendly Confines” was heard game after game. Wrigley Field is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and storied Major League ballparks in the league, and it is home to one of the best fan bases in baseball history.

With an entire nation supporting a single team, many would say that “The Six” is home to the most passionate, crazed, and hardcore fan bases that the game of baseball has ever seen. In fact, during game 5 of the 2015 ALDS, the game was almost cut short due to riots throughout the Rogers Centre. During October matchups, all 53,506 fans are heard while tightly packed into slim bleacher seats. The noise is even more deafening when the roof is shut, trapping each hoot, holler, and cheer offered by Jays fans within the cement walls. The Blue Jays have thrived off of the energy that the crowd has provided them the past two postseasons, making the Rogers Centre the most difficult place in baseball to secure a road victory in October.
