I haven't taken a science course in over 10 years, so things may have changes, but doesn't sound travel? How do you plan on regulating the volume in the rest of the stadium?

Cone of Silence with a Citi logo on it.

That's a pretty quiet stadium already (at least on the second tier behind first base). But the headline doesn't make sense, the Mets have only been around for 50 years. BOOMITER.

The teams they may be playing and the sport are much older.

So.... maybe they could give the kiddos special headphones? Can I go in the cone of silence if I'm not autistic? Because sometimes, I just want people to STFU.

They are a pretty fun team this season.

If the season ended today, they'd be in the playoffs.

Judging by the Mets fans I've had to endure during spring training here, I'd say this covers pretty much all of them. I've never seen a more stats-obsessed fan base. They'll sit there and tell you Howard Johnson's OBP for the second half of the 1991 season, or how many doubles Marv Throneberry had during his career with the team. An entire fan base of Rain Men.

I agree. I'm pissed I missed watching any of Johan's no hitter when it happened.... Being a yanks fan its just too much fun poking at you guys. (I've found that generally after the years of emotional abuse Met's fans have endured they tend to have thin skins)

Is the 10 team expanded playoffs starting this year? Nice of baseball to give you guys a leg up.

I enjoy the Mets. I come from a Mets household and lived in Mets country for a while. I am a Sox fan though.

Ahh oh.. Who's on first

I thought they already had a quiet section for the tards.

It's called AT HOME, IN FRONT OF THE TELEVISION. If your snowflake can't handle being at the ballgame, then don't take it. Problem solved!

I had playoff tickets next to an autistic kid.

Honestly, I wish he'd had his own section too.

Yes. But it isnt, and they won't be.

Wouldn't be that much of an issue if they stopped piping in crowd noise.

The kiddies in the autistic section will take to posting K-Mart Sucks posters for each strike out instead of K posters when Santana or Dickey are pitching.
