Down in Front!
NatsPark features a gentle slope or angle in the seating areas. Attacks of vertigo due to a steep set of stairs to and from seats are less likely than at many other major sporting arenas.
On the other hand, fans walking up and down those nicely spaced steps block the view of fans in their seats. I've heard a lot more calls of "down in front" this year.
So many of us were pleased to see the scoreboard running an announcement asking patrons to refrain from walking in the aisles during at bats.
The excellent Nats320 blog touched upon this as part of a longer post on May 2.
Basketball patrons are quite used to ushers stopping them at the top of a section while the ball is in play. Same thing at hockey games. And many baseball stadiums have a "keep out of the aisles during at bats" policy as well. Looks like NatsPark has one too. Now, if they would only enforce it. I'd hate to miss a close play at home because someone was too busy trying to get down the steps and or around his seatmates during the action.
