Sports Notebook: Reserved seating

Must Read

Officially, there is no reserved seating at high-school baseball and softball games. Attendance is on a general admission basis.

Basically, it’s sit where space is available in whatever bleacher seating is provided. Or, spectators can bring their own chairs, which many do.

Many often arrive early to set up their chairs in favorite spots behind the backstop. Then they leave their seats empty to save those spots, then return to sit once the game begins.

It’s a practice that has been occurring for a few years now, at some schools more than others, especially for winning teams that regularly draw big crowds for such games.

The photo with this blog shows such personal seating that was reserved prior to a recent state semifinal high-school baseball game between the Madison Warhawks and host Lake Braddock Bruins. The chairs were put in place an hour before game time. The owners return to sit as the player instructions began.

So for those who bring their own, there is reserved seating at such games, put in place early and not to be moved by others. If that happens, words sometimes get exchanged.
