Eric Hosmer from The Players' Tribune

NEW YORK — The sports website ‘The Players’ Tribune’ has rolled out a new series called ‘ Best of America.‘ They describe it as the place ‘ where athletes name the best of the best that they’ve experienced across the country in their travels — food, music, you name it.’

Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was first up to answer questions.

Hosmer says the best band in America is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He says the best burger is ‘hands down’ BRGR Kitchen + Bar in Kansas City. He says he loves the barbecue sauce loaded on the burgers.

He names Chase Field in Arizona as the best place to get ball park food. The best beach is Fort Lauderdale Beach, which is in his hometown.

The site was created by 5-time World Series champ Derek Jeter. Click here for the full interview.

“Best thing you didn’t ask me… was how much I enjoy this ring and how beautiful it is. It’s shining right in front of the camera,” said Hosmer. “I guess we are in New York so that’s why no one asked me about it.”
