    Via Baseball Musings -

    Caitlin A. LaGrotte of Temple University asked me to post a link to a survey she’s conducting. Here’s the description:

    Here is an opportunity to share your experiences at baseball games when the Yankees are playing the Red Sox.

    This survey hopes to better understand the environment created in baseball stadiums when rivals are playing. The study will not ask for any personal information and will allow for better understanding of the rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox. If you have attended a Yankee versus Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park please click the link below to take the survey. Thank you.

    You can take the survey here.

    Speak up Yankees fans! I took the survey. It only takes about 10 minutes or less.

      Is this survey about going to a baseball game or fighting in Iraq?

      It’s flawed in that it’s asking (in the first part) if Yankee fans are scared of Red Sox fans while in Yankees Stadium. Why would you be? They get loud and annoying — and a fight might even break out — but they’re outnumbered and the cops always throw them out immediately.

      I dunno.

      If I’m there with my 2-year old and 4-year old, and no one else, and 5 drunk Red Sox fans, each who have 6″ and 30 pounds on me, are screaming at me, out of their mind, because the Yanks are getting beat bad, I’m not sure that being in Yankee Stadium makes a difference, at that moment, in terms of my comfort level.

      I’ve never felt unsafe at the stadium (with the exception of walking alone at night under the trestle). Also, Caitlin didn’t offer ‘bleachers’ as a section that people sit in.

      Actually, there are more cops at the Stadium on game day there you’ll find on just about any street on a given night. Outside the park is not that bad.

      Inside? Well, booze can get some people ready to do some strange things….and by the time security gets there you might be missing an eye and/or some teeth.
