If fans at the Coliseum choose to wear light-up jackets, they should be allowed to wear light-up jackets. Why? Because they’re fans and they’re at the Coliseum. That’s a rarity. Why piss off 20 percent of the fans that chose to attend your game?
Apparently the light-up jackets worn by an A’s and an Orioles fan Tuesday night were distracting enough that they were told to turn them off. They were seated behind home plate, so I guess the field umpire thought they would distract the pitcher and/or fielders? Who knows.
