Section H is for the Birds

UPDATE 26 APR 2010: We’ve been told the seats will be cleaner in 2010. This is good news. This post strickly remains now in a historical sense only. Go Vipers!


Here’s some photos I snapped this past weekend from the red seats in Section H (third-base side).  Other than the picture of the Section H banner, there are no duplicate pictures, and none of the seats are photographed more than just once.

Do you see a pattern?

Bird Poo chairs 1, 2 and 3

Bird Poo chairs 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10

Bird Poo chairs 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18

Bird Poo chairs 19, 20, 21, and 22

It took me about thirty seconds to find 22 chairs that no one in their right mind would want to sit near.  My theory is that the Foothills Stadium personnel just wait for rain to “clean” the seats.  Is it too much to ask that a high-pressure hose be taken to the seats after a game?

    Use to be back in the days of old (okay last season) the ushers would wipe down the seats before games. However, in an effort to make/save money all day staff (with the exception of concessions) are asked to arrive right before their shift. It makes for some customer service blunders – the seats being one.

    Even the concessions folks are in a bit later than they used to be. As for a high pressure hose, that would make a mess of it’s own, as the flexible join between sections G and H aren’t perfect, resulting in water pouring down onto the concourse, where it would probably sit for days…some nice water and some scrubbing would probably do the trick however.

    Someone (nonstaff type) need to put the idea out to the man who is “now running the show”. I think he needs to be reminded that while saving/making money is a good thing one has to also think of the customers. If anyone wants to speak with Mr. Conrad I am sure the “Gatekeeper” at the games can point you in his direction or you could email him the contact info is on the web page. Just a hint I mean thought LoL

    Even folks with the highest priced season tickets in the league have to wipe the bird crap of their own seats before the games… Shameful I think. Looks like in an effort to churn some dough, which is good for the team in the short/long run, the front office has lost track of the small stuff that matters…
