If you have ever attended a professional sporting event, you know that before the game they warn fans not to enter the field of play. Here is what I wnat to see announced and on the Jumbo-tron:
"Your purchase price of a ticket to this baseball game does not entitle you to access to the field at anytime. It is against the law to trespass on the field of play under City Ordinances and is punishable by fines, imprisonment, and community service.
"It is also quite foolish.
"You will be entering an arena populated by young men in their prime who are physically conditioned to perform at top levels of athletic competition. You are no athlete, you are probably just drunk or stoned, with dulled senses and probably too many hours in front of a television and video games.
"The players you encounter are fast and strong. At least one of them can fire a small ball at speeds upwards of 100 miles per hour with pinpoint accuracy. At least two of them have large wooden clubs in their possession and can use them to hit that ball; imagine what they can do with a target as large as you. Umpires have been instructed to continue the game at all costs and will knock you down to do so." (The following video will be shown) youtu.be/INRPA2Qq5QY
"The league has hereby withdrawn its ban on players stopping you from your foolishness.
"Of course, the police still have tasers and billy clubs to subdue you and will use them.
"The crowd is not cheering you. They are laughing at your stupidity and cheering on the police. They all know the inevitability of your capture.
"You have been warned. You now have no legal recourse if you are injured when you do something really stupid."
