Briefly, on the Quiet Section

Is there anything the Mets have done better in recent years than, to use a political term, microtargeting?
The news that the team is considering a quiet section for games to make Citi Field a more hospitable place for autistic children is laudable. It is also nothing new.
They do a tremendous job with gluten-free alternatives for people with Celiac Disease. They have Bark in the Park for dog owners. They have all kinds of ethnic nights. They celebrate Little Leagues. If you haven’t been eligible for a night at Citi Field, you probably ought to go read Bowling Alone. And then, next year, come out to Bowling Alone Night at Citi Field.
It is the kind of thing that builds communities around a baseball team. It is smart as hell. And it is once again, as this initiative would be, the right thing to do. Tremendous to see this.
