BASEBALL

BEST
Colorado ( Coors Field) 64-inch big-screen TV fits nicely in the huge home clubhouse. Cherry-wood lockers add a classy touch.

WORST
San Francisco ( Pac Bell Park) Architects forgot to put a bathroom-shower area in the visiting manager's office.

BASKETBALL

BEST
Dallas ( American Airlines Center) Large, open space with 61-inch big-screen television, a leather couch and a pool table.

WORST
New Jersey ( Continental Airlines Arena) Tiny room; players sit on creaky benches and hang their clothes on coat hooks.

FOOTBALL

BEST

WORST
Philadelphia ( Veterans Stadium) Small, cramped space for the visiting team in a horrible venue for football.
