Fans with voices louder than the drum guy in Cleveland who would torture the opposing team with either well-placed or just stupid and repetitious insults
But the real deal in most parks was the now-extinct "General Admission",
Well, there is if the next generation or two can't get to be as well off as their parents were no matter what they do, at least in the same numbers, which looks to be what's happening.
I'd never heard "hotbox" before but I played pickle for hours on end as a kid.
#48, he was some sort of real estate developer or contractor. When the market went south so did his money, his house got foreclosed, etc. He either doesn't want to go to just a few games and sit in the everyman seats or he does go but doesn't heckle any more
The difference was that in Griffith Stadium / DC Stadium and many of the other older parks, up through most of the 60's general admission got you into the middle of the lower deck, behind the plate as well as in the outfield.
Yada yada yada it came out roughly even.
Oh yea, that was a steal. We used to sit in right-field GA at Royals Stadium, known as "rowdy right." I think it was like $5 in the 80s. Ewing Kauffman said he always wanted to keep GA seats in the outfield to allow working class fans a chance to sit up close.
