But devotees of the Amazins' might have to pipe down — the proposal was meant to help autistic children.
“The Mets are considering adding a designated ‘quiet’ seating section with lower volume PA announcements and no music or cheerleading," the question said, according to the report. "How likely would you be to purchase tickets in that section?”
The Post reported that the question created quite a flap among fans with some team supporters like 49-year old Rochelle Kleinworm from Long Island calling the idea of a quiet zone “stupid.”
The Mets supporter told the paper she expected fans to “be loud and have a lot of fun,” at the ballgame.
However, the team took to its official Twitter page @mets to clarify the brouhaha, saying the survey question was prompted by requests received from parents of autistic children.
“A more quiet section is helpful to autistic children,” the team tweeted. “1 in 8 kids today have some form of autism.”
The Mets tweeted that the franchise was trying to get a better sense of whether such “quiet sections” would work on all game days or should be restricted to just “Autism Awareness Days.”
The Post reported the quiet zone was proposed in the second-deck level, where seats cost between $20 to $78 a ticket, depending on who is playing.
