Rules to live by for a Baseball fan
- Don’t say “we” when referring to your team. Example “we need better pitching”; the correct way to phrase that is “the Dodgers need better pitching”. I’ve done it myself on more than one occasion but here’s the thing. It’s bad. You shouldn’t do it.
- If you bring your glove to the game DO NOT! I repeat. DO NOT drop the ball if it’s hit to you. Nothing is more cringe than seeing a grown adult sitting in the stands holding a glove. Actually Dropping a foul ball or homerun while wearing a glove is even more cringe-“paging Henry Cejudo”-so don’t do it!
- Never wear another teams hat. It’s that simple, I buy two hats a year. My summer wearing Dodger Blue snap-back(yea I wear a snap back, big whoop wanna fight about it?) and my winter attire black LA hat. No other teams adorn my crown and neither should they adorn yours.
- Never BOO your own pitcher as they come out of the bullpen. Many of you might remember a few seasons ago the trials and tribulations of Pedro Baez. At one point things got so bad that upon hearing his name being announced the boos would begin to rain down. You’d think they were bringing in Frank McCourt they were so bad. Don’t be that person ever. Till this day if you were ever one of those people I have a grudge towards you. I cant write what I think about you here because “oh my lanta” it would be awful. Just never do it. Ever. The psychology of an athlete is a tricky tricky beast and frankly no one in the stands of a game can come close to doing what these men over the course of a 162 game season. So keep your boos to yourself.
- Always boo the opposing team. Now you might be saying “but rule 4 says..” well screw rule 4 when it comes to the other team. Give them no love & take no prisoners.
- My final rule for being a fan is simple.. be loyal, through the good times and bad just be loyal.
