Some grouchiness from Tony Jackson:
WHY WRIGLEY FIELD IS BETTER THAN DODGER STADIUM
NO loud music. NO commercials read over the PA system between innings. NO animated races on the jumbotron/diamondvision/whateveritis at any point (in fact, there is no jumbotron/diamondvision/whateveritis here). There IS a little bit of organ music, played at a nice, unobtrusive volume level, but other than that, when you come to Wrigley, you buy a ticket to see a baseball game and you get ... a baseball game. Novel concept, I know. But the Dodgers -- and almost every other team around the league -- could learn a lot from it.
Not that I dislike Dodger Stadium, mind you, but all that dot race/hat shuffle/MAKE SOME NOISE crap just gets in the way of the baseball. Both the Cubs and Dodgers have loyal fan bases, but when you're trying to market Dodger Stadium as the next Disneyland, I guess you need bells and whistles.
Anyone have any idea whether Wrigley is as "family friendly" as Dodger Stadium? Wrigley tops my list of stadiums to visit.
