    DefaultDog Day at the Astros/Phillies Game on Sept. 7th

    We are finally having a dog day at the ball park. There will be a parade around the field before the game. Half of the ticket price will go to the local animal shelter.

    Good for you and the Astros.

    This topic actually came up between myself and the Director of Finance for the Twins (my soon to be SIL). They have talked about it. Apparently they did this 40 years ago and stopped. The talk of restarting came up, and they searched their records to see if it was ever written down as to why they stopped years ago.

    Irresponsible owners, allowing their dogs to urinate in the stands and not picking up poop was found to be a concern, but not reason to stop. A single dog bite to a non-dog person was the reason. A court case followed and the Twins were held responsible. It cost more in court costs than the settlement, and that pretty much killed it.

    No worse than the behavior of the fans themselves.....

    I think they section off one part of the stands for the dog owners/dogs, don't they? I don't think you can just buy two regular tickets for anywhere in the stadium... so non-dog people wouldn't be around the dogs if they didn't want to be.

    At least, i think that's how they did it in Seattle for the LOL Dogs party.
