Give it up for Selig and crew for doing the right thing for baseball, and not giving a deaf ear to the fans.

I failed to note that it's just the bases... which is good enough for me.I hate to say it, but Fox's advertising explosion at Dodger Stadium has numbed me to most advertising at Dodger Stadium.In fact, Dodger Stadium has always been identified by me via advertising... since I was a kid. Even my baseball purist brothers will agree with me, I'm sure, that the sight of a Union 76 ball gives me/them great feelings and memories of the Dodger Blue.I do have to admit that it does irk me a bit that my future children are going to get nostalgic in the future when they see an Adelphia ad or Subway Sandwich logo, though.Especially Adelphia... [shudder].

Yes, I have great memories of seeing those Union 76 logos as a kid. There's nothing wrong with a few sponsors as long as it doesn't get out of control in the way it has recently at Dodger Stadium. The way I see it, those Union 76 balls represented loyalty because they were above the scoreboards since the ballpark opened in 1962. Under the O'Malley's, the Dodger organization personified loyalty. However, after the Fox people took over, much of that ended as Chavez Ravine filled up with advertisements of Coca Cola, Budweiser, King Taco, etc.

The real problem with this is that, from most camera angles, and the stands, those logos were going to look like red dots, not a noticeable spiderweb pattern.Baseball was going to sell out for ads that can't even make any difference other than pissing off the fans that know something is up?
