Wow. My heart goes out to this guy.
Wow. My heart goes out to this guy.
My coworkers and i were just talking today how hot it was in the northeast and how could they play baseball during the day in the heat and how could it not affect justthe players , but the fans.. wow and to watch that my heart went out to that guy.. i am saying a prayer for him as i am sure many many people are around the country , as well as Boston are....
Some putz actually took his baby to the ballpark last night. They showed it on FSN. This wasn't a young kid, it was a baby. In a diaper and nothing else (Very classy, but that's a different point).
I couldn't tell but his seats looked very close to field level which had to have game time temps in the very high 90F range, perhaps over 100F. The humidity was horrible.
I'm not one of these people who thinks we should live in a bubble or wear helmets everywhere, but taking a baby to a ballgame (which I don't understand whatever the temp) on a VERY hot, humidy, poor air quality day doesn't strike me as very wise.
I can't watch the vid above as the hotel internet connection is horrible, but it sounds very heart breaking.

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
There really needs to be a reduced price on water during heat warnings. It would never happen (for economic reasons alone), but in the interest of safety, it would be nice to see an organization step up and make it easier for fans to keep hydrated. $4.00 bottled water does not promote proper hydration.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
$4.00 water doesnt promote anything except for greed.Originally Posted by paintmered
I agree with that feeling Kronored. That is a very tragic story.Originally Posted by KronoRed
Last year, the ballpark has free water stations when the temperature is in the 90's. They're small cups, but you can get as many as you want.Originally Posted by paintmered
I don't know if they're doing it this year.

bad day to go baseball game
This is why they play night games. I wonder if the team had thought about moving the start time back to the the evening to let the temperature cool. Maybe MLB should look into recommeding that teams do that for day games where the temperature goes above a certain level. It's not like there are still ballparks without lights.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
Just awful. Not sure what else can be said.
Cedric 3/24/08It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
It's incredibly sad, but its also incredibly foolish going to a baseball game in 100 degree weather when you're seven months pregnant.
Sad story though.
I hate the Cardinals. I hate the Cubs.
Let's. Go. Reds.
