Karen Eidem says security tapped her on the shoulder while she was standing with friends at the ballpark Wednesday night. Eidem had changed a couple letters on the back of her Brewers shirt to make it read “Fraud” instead of “Braun” because of the slugger’s recent suspension.
Security told her the modified shirt violated the fan code of conduct and that she would have to change the shirt or leave the ballpark. Eidem turned the shirt inside out and stayed for the game.
To the team’s credit, the Brewers said that the guard should not have done this and they have offered another ticket to Ms. Eidem. They said their policy is only about shirts and signs and things which might be offensive and the like. But I would be curious to know how those standards are communicated to security staff if the guy in question here thought this was anywhere close to the line.
