Here is a great blog entry on both pros and cons of minor league baseball from a blogger in Detroit. I’ve snipped a gem that I hope will persuade you to read the rest of the entry:
“…it’s much more fun to yell insulting things at the umpire and have him actually be able to hear you. I’ve sat behind a few fans that wrote down the umpires’ names when they were announced before the game, as to be able to harass all of them personally. Last year, I sat a few rows behind a guy that would yell “We respectfully disagree” at the umpire whenever there was a (perceived) bad call. It was the most polite harassment any of us had ever heard, presumably including the umpire, who started laughing the first time that this happened.”
Thanks for this great blog entry, Garrett!
