I read this in the Washington Post:
Yankees chief operating officer Lonn Trost pointed out that fans who paid $1,000 for one of the premium seats wouldn’t be comfortable sitting next to a fan who had bought one of the seats on the secondary market and maybe had “never sat in a premium location.”
I had not realized that baseball had become the sport of the wealthy and socially elite. I always thought it was the "great American pass time." Peanuts, beer and cracker jack. Now the hoi polloi are to be relegated to the nosebleed section or otherwise hidden from view.
Well, good on John Oliver for buying tickets for several lucky people who promised that they would dress like someone who never before sat in a premium location.
