Front-running Yankees fans appear like locust at opposing stadiums across the country because apparently nobody wants to live in New York. But major league baseball teams (in places people like to live, like Colorado) are taking a stand and charging extra for tickets to see the Bronx Bombers. And this is an absolutely great idea.
Most Angels fans don't want to go to the ballpark when Yankees fans come to town, mainly because they are rude, ignorant and, let's face it, their team kind of stinks. Imagine if the Royals had a large following and a bunch of Kansas City fans showed up at the ballpark, talking about the past, yelling obscenities and causing the city of Anaheim to deploy mounted police officers. (That's true.) So why not make these guys pay a few extra bucks for it? That's just smart business. Many season ticket holders get premiums for Yankees, Red Sox and Dodgers tickets, so the club should be afforded the same opportunity.
And hey, if it allows Arte Moreno to lower beer prices even further, so be it.
