I've been to ten different MLB stadiuims, half have had huge signs, or at least people saying, "Don't go to your seat during an At Bat" or something similar.

Definitely one of my top 5 reasons why I have no interest in going to a Brewer game anymore.

We moved our seats from the First base side on the home plate side aisle to the third base side middleish of the section and it allieviates it somewhat. There were points at our old seats where you couldn't see the game for periods. And to make matters worse, if it's not the near constant stream of people, it's the vendors. Often stopping in the middle of the aisles as well.

It is slightly better, albeit still annoying, if you're not right near the aisle.

The Brewers choose not to educate the fans on baseball courtesies.... not sure why not. Moreover, the avg Brewer fan is a kind and courteous person. Yet, Most of these people have NO CLUE about when to stand up, move out, or move back to their seat. Then again, if baseball games are going to last 4 hours, I might give up my learned baseball courtesies, as well.

Beer does not wait for the inning to end. Let's get real, guys...

Earlier this year, I sat on the third base side just out of view of where the TV shows the on deck batter. It was a joke with the people standing up there. Even if there are signs asking people to wait, people will either ignore it, or be too drunk to see it.

In the video, the young lady squatted down to stay out of the way. The guy in front of the Unit just didn't care.

The only time this year where it wasn't a problem is when we were in the front row in the loge in the right field bleachers. Mat Gamel threw a ball my way... [smile]

I couldn't agree more with the Big Unit. You wait for between innings to go to your seat. Sometimes I'll try to hustle to my seat during a home run celebration when everyone is standing anyways. It blows my mind how little these fans seem to be concerned with anything but themselves.

It isn't just the fans in that section, in that video, it is this way all around the entire freaking stadium.

Watching at home has become my preferable way to watch the Brewers, the hassles involved in going to a live game have begun to outnumber the joys it brings.

I remember when the Brewers used to have ushers stationed at the top of the stairs and not allow people to go to their seats unless it was between innings. That never stopped the people from getting up during the inning and leaving, but it cut half the traffic down just by making them wait to go back...

Wish they would do this again.

Worst part is that he states in the description that this "fan interference" made him miss a Travis Shaw home run. That's like missing a chance to see a real, live Yeti or something like that.

Don't know if Cleveland (Progressive/ Jacobs Field) is part of your listing but I can share the Signs AND the USHERS will stop the flow of people down to the seats during at-bats. People can move down between at-bats.
Nothing can be done about preventing people from leaving their seats to head to the concourse...

If i want to pay close attention to a Brewers game, i stay home and watch on my TV where i see important plays from various angles, can actually see if a pitch is a ball or strike, can pause/fast forward at my leisure, etc etc.

When i choose to attend a game, i go for different reasons. Have a fun night out with friends or family on a nice weather day or night. Tailgating. With that though, i know and expect hassles with traffic, lines for bathrooms/concessions, missing parts of the game, people in my way, lots of distractions, spending plenty of cash, etc.

Having attended about 50-60 games though at Miller Park, i've learned where i like to sit and not sit for a variety of reasons and if i can't get tickets in areas i prefer, i usually don't go unless given free tickets

Bart’s video making fun of Bill while at a Milkman game was pure gold! If you haven’t seen it, it’s on his Twitter page. I like Bart & Chuck a lot. Both are local guys from Fondy area. Always listened to Winkler on K107 before he made the switch. Outside of them, I don’t bother listening to the Fan anymore.

Kind of bizarro world that this is what Twitter is getting mad at Michaels about when he is actually right. I can't stand the guy and he says a lot of dumb things but this is not it.

I actually putzed through the replies to his post, and a significant majority seem to agree with him. I see the occasional "I bought a ticket, I should be able to come and go from my seat whenever I want"...but what else can you do but roll your eyes and move on from that level of selfish/self-centered?

I was say that pretty much everybody doesn't understand the etiquette on when to come and go from your seats. I didn't understand it until I was in my early 20's and we would go to opposing ball parks where the ushers wouldn't let anyone go to their seats. Milwaukee doesn't enforce it so most if not pretty all don't know.


On this similar subject. What about playoff baseball where usually a younger adults have seats say in row 8 or 9 and want to stand for pretty much every pitch?

That's like saying "I bought a ticket, I should be able to stand at my seat the entire game." Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD.

(I know you don't feel this way, just piggybacking on your post)

I can't stand Bill Michaels but he's right about this one. Miller Park ushers need to do more to keep people from returning to seats during an AB.

On the other hand, the people on the other side of the aisle aren't having much of an issue [smile]

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I'm with Michaels on this.

But this is what live baseball is now. Boring, slow moving non-action. Fans have no reason to NOT get up to get food, etc. There's nothing happening on the field to hold their interest. They are behaving rudely, but not out of any dislike of others, but because they are less interested in the product on the field than they are in other things.

This doesn't happen as much at basketball, hockey or football games. But 2019 baseball isn't something that holds their attention.

It does happen in hockey because ushers are very hit and miss.
