Fans have paid for right to heckle

It's your call

May 16, 1991

Yes, the price of a ticket entitles fans to heckle, but that doesn't mean they should do it, according to respondents of "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's phone survey on topical issues.

Seven of 10 (257 of 366) who called said the price of admission gives fans the right to heckle. However, only 54 percent (197 of 364) said fans should heckle players, as was the case recently with the Indians' Albert Belle and the A's Jose Canseco.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
