New York Mets Considering Quiet Section for Autistic Fans
A survey sent out yesterday by the New York Mets indicates that the team is considering adding a quiet section for autistic fans and their families:
One question read, "The Mets are considering adding a designated 'quiet' seating section with lower volume PA announcements and no music or cheerleading. How likely would you be to purchase tickets in that section?"
According to radio station WFAN, the team on Thursday said the question was prompted by suggestions from parents of autistic children, who explained that such a section would heighten their kids' enjoyment of the game.
