New York Mets Exploring 'Quiet' Section for Fans with Autism

New York Mets Exploring 'Quiet' Section At Citi Field For Families With Autistic Kids « CBS New York

NEW YORK (WFAN) – Yes, the Mets are exploring the possibility of selling tickets for a “quiet” section at Citi Field. 
The Amazin’s posed the question to their fans in an email survey Wednesday: “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?”
It “would apply to a section in the second-deck, left-field seats,” which sell for between $20 and $78 apiece under the team’s dynamic pricing plan, according to the New York Post. The paper quoted a few Mets fans who panned the concept, calling it “stupid,” “boring” and “just not baseball.”
