FanPost

After extensive research...Dodgers decide to not hate children.

On Thursday I put up a Fanpost with a couple of links to columns by TJ Simers of the LA Times. TJ had exposed a new Dodger Stadium policy that denied field level access to autograph seekers unless they had tickets for box seats.

Well after collecting "more data"...the Dodgers have decided to drop the policy.

The Dodgers, surrendering to the wishes of irate fans, announced Friday they have dropped a new rule and will allow all youngsters to seek autographs in Dodger Stadium in much the same way they have done for years.

No comment yet from the rich kids, but now everyone in the stadium will be given the same opportunity to stand on the dirt strip at the end of the Dodgers dugout and be ignored by the players while trying to get an autograph.

 

Apparently it didn't go as well as the Dodgers PR staff would have hoped:

Almost a dozen Dodgers employees were in the area. None of them asked for autographs. They brought down a box of Sharpies, which actually had ink in them. The fans seemed to like the new arrangement.

But despite the Dodgers' efforts to improve the situation, only a few players took notice. Andre Ethier, Delwyn Young and Matt Kemp were seen obliging some of the kids; Andruw Jones was obviously in the batting cage beneath the stands getting in some extra work.
