    people who have work to do for their job and want to enjoy the game at the same time.

    people have their own reasons. why let it bother you? don't pay attention to them

    They don't let me bring mine to the clubs either. I imagine a bunch of women would just salivate if I could whip out my big......Iphone!

    Pretty stupid ban. Maybe the those dumb yanks don't wanna be liable if a ball comes screeching ur way, nails ur ipad and breaks it, or a idiot drunk Yankee fan spills beer on it or falls on u and breaks it. I guess the ballpark isn't the safest envirornment for ur ipad.....but that should be up to the owner of the device.

    Why would you bring your laptop or iPad to the stadium?

    If they have that much work to do, they should be at the damned game. I hate the Yankees (Mets fan), but I support this rule of theirs.

    People (who arent journalists) who think that a laptop iPad has a viable place at a live sporting event are fools. Hope you all get your faces smashed in by a foul ball or hockey puck or something.

    Honestly, you cant get your minds off these things long enough to have a beer and bratwurst while watching a game? What's wrong with you people?

    The only sports I see the iPad being used is in racing, for live timing. Of course, most live timing sites use flash...which would equal to a blue brick of FAIL (ie. Formula 1)

    yes, they should be at the game, just like you said lol

    don't blame others because you suck at not paying attention to the game. quit blaming others for sitting peacefully in their chairs and doing whatever they want. it's not like they are screaming, yelling, and causing a scene.

    keep your eyes forward

    First of all, that picture is of the old stadium; get with the times. Secondly, I could see some baseball fanatics wanting to use the MLB.com iPad app during the game.

    That being said, I can't imagine I'd ever bring an iPad to the game. My iPhone, however, is another story.

    This is going to happen more and more. A phone or touch is one thing. A bright 10" screen is another it can be distracting. I just got done with a year on probation for disorderly conduct because a DB got two calls in a theater. Now the theater has a very strict cell phone policy. I won, twice. Now if I bought a ticket to something and some geek or fanboy has to get out something with a big bright screen I will ask them nicely to put it away once. Second time I will help them. I am an A-Hole and I approve this message

    you better watch out who you touch seems like you had an anger issue once in the theater. might want to learn something from that, especially getting physical with somebody.

    there are people out there that might happen to be LEO's, and you could get into a lot of trouble with that if you get physical with one.

    or, you could be at an oakland A's game (like me a few weeks ago), and i think there are a lot of people there you would not want to come in contact with

    LEO's are ppl to and can be beat. Its only a Law Enforcement Officer if in uniform. Don't take it the wrong way. I am a nice guy with anger issues I did pass anger management (cond of probation). I did learn though 1 big event can make a theater a better place I would do it again if I had to Most LEO's would respect others space I did say I would ask nicely once.

    Maybe you are going to the game with your family and hate baseball. I could care less about sports, but if I had kids that wanted to go I wouldn't deprive them. The food is also amazing at ball parks. It's worth the tickets just to get some dogs man!
