The culture of baseball is mannered. Infuriatingly, the fans are not. But its alright, watching a game in the stadium has to be a pleasant experience, and people make a few cutbacks here and there to make the most out of their experience. With that said, following we are going you a few tips you should mind when watching a baseball game in the stadium:
Don’t Pretend You Know Everything
It’s hilarious when people pretend; they know everything about a given topic. Yes, it’s possible, but this is not something you want to pretend. Feel free to talk about the game while watching it. This perhaps one of the best parts of the game. But you don’t want your friends to accept everything you said as a word of truth.
Its alright if you don’t know about a subject. Accept this as a fact and move on, you are not making a joke of yourself by doing it. But if you pretend you know everything and someone finds out this was not the case, then it will be embarrassing for you.
Don’t Boo the Team for Strikeout
If someone drops a routine ball or gives up three runs without recording the out, you don’t need to boo you. Teams and their players need their fans for their support. But when do you think they need it the most? It’s during their most difficult times. So instead of booing and killing their confidence, why don’t you cheer up for them and motivate them to perform better? It will help both parties.
Just because you paid for the Dodgers Box, it doesn’t mean you can kill the team’s confidence. You can’t do anything about the game results, apart from how you feel and how you showcase your feelings. So, work on yourself instead!
Don’t Get Side Tracked
We are not saying you can’t talk about anything besides baseball. But you need to mind the fact you are going to sit near a bunch of strangers for a while. So, you don’t want to talk about your personal life or any intricate details. They don’t want to hear any of it, and you are better off not talking about it all things considered.
In case you have to talk about something, it’s better you do it with as few words as possible. You need to keep it shut between bats and pitches. Once you have spoken your heart out, you need to find a way to get the conversation back to baseball somehow.
Dealing with Seat Swaps
Stadiums get super busy and messy during a game. So, you need to be open-minded and be prepared for any setback. This will help you deal with the situation without dragging it. With that said, it’s possible you get your seat swaps.
The most important thing you can do here is to remain calm and deal with the situation without making a scene. Try to discuss the issue with the person sitting at your seat and explain to him why he can’t do this. Ask him for his ticket and call a stadium staff member if needed. They are always around to help people.
