This is interesting. The Mets are circulating a survey to fans with the following question:
“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?”
This came in an email to fans. Not mentioned in the email, however, was the reasoning behind it:
The idea is aimed toward families with autistic children, the Mets told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton.
This would be really cool. We’ve seen some teams do this with peanut-free sections to accommodate fans with allergies. It and similar initiatives are a great move for organizations seeking to draw fans who might otherwise steer clear of the ballpark.
