“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?”
The NY Post reports:
This proposed silent treatment would apply to a section in the second-deck, left-field seats that now go for between $20 and $78 a ticket, depending on the opponent.
The Mets confirmed the team was “evaluating the concept” of a “quiet section.”
The Blitz suggests seatbelts as well, so as to not interfere with the view of other patrons. (Ed edit for those who just don't get it: As is done in some stadiums via ushers who do not let you return to your seat until an out is made / inning is over.)
Update: The NYM tells the Boomer & Carton show that the idea is aimed at families with autistic children. Which makes the thought a good one but...sorta like smoking sections on planes. You're in a tube...
