The New York Mets are pondering the idea of designating a “quiet section” inside Citi Field, to make the stadium more friendly to families with autistic children.
I guess baseball fans can argue the pros and cons, but this non-baseball fan thinks it’s a good idea…
At least in theory.
The Amazin’s posed the question to their fans in an email survey: “The Mets are considering adding a designated ‘quiet’ seating section with lower volume PA announcements and no music or cheerleading. How likely would you be to purchase tickets in that section?”
It “would apply to a section in the second-deck, left-field seats,” which sell for between $20 and $78 apiece under the team’s dynamic pricing plan, according to the New York Post.
The idea is to make Citi Field more welcoming to families with autistic children, the Mets told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton.
Of course, considering the way the Mets usually play, Citi Field is usually pretty silent, anyway. POW!
