Updated Baseball Fever Policy

Baseball Fever Policy

I. Purpose of this announcement:

This announcement describes the policies pertaining to the operation of Baseball Fever.

Baseball Fever is a moderated baseball message board which encourages and facilitates research and information exchange among fans of our national pastime. The intent of the Baseball Fever Policy is to ensure that Baseball Fever remains an extremely high quality, extremely low "noise" environment.

Baseball Fever is administrated by three principal administrators:
webmaster - Baseball Fever Owner
The Commissioner - Baseball Fever Administrator
Macker - Baseball Fever Administrator

And a group of forum specific super moderators. The role of the moderator is to keep Baseball Fever smoothly and to screen posts for compliance with our policy. The moderators are ALL volunteer positions, so please be patient and understanding of any delays you might experience in correspondence.

II. Comments about our policy:

Any suggestions on this policy may be made directly to the webmaster.

III. Acknowledgments:

This document was based on a similar policy used by SABR.

IV. Requirements for participation on Baseball Fever:

Participation on Baseball Fever is available to all baseball fans with a valid email address, as verified by the forum's automated system, which then in turn creates a single validated account. Multiple accounts by a single user are prohibited.

By registering, you agree to adhere to the policies outlined in this document and to conduct yourself accordingly. Abuse of the forum, by repeated failure to abide by these policies, will result in your access being blocked to the forum entirely.

V. Baseball Fever Netiquette:

Participants at Baseball Fever are required to adhere to these principles, which are outlined in this section.
a. All posts to Baseball Fever should be written in clear, concise English, with proper grammar and accurate spelling. The use of abbreviations should be kept to a minimum; when abbreviation is necessary, they should be either well-known (such as etc.), or explained on their first use in your post.

b. Conciseness is a key attribute of a good post.

c. Quote only the portion of a post to which you are responding.

d. Standard capitalization and punctuation make a large difference in the readability of a post. TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS is considered to be "shouting"; it is a good practice to limit use of all capitals to words which you wish to emphasize.

e. It is our policy NOT to transmit any defamatory or illegal materials.

f. Personal attacks of any type against Baseball Fever readers will not be tolerated. In these instances the post will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the personal attack via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue personal attacks will be banned from the site.

g. It is important to remember that many contextual clues available in face-to-face discussion, such as tone of voice and facial expression, are lost in the electronic forum. As a poster, try to be alert for phrasing that might be misinterpreted by your audience to be offensive; as a reader, remember to give the benefit of the doubt and not to take umbrage too easily. There are many instances in which a particular choice of words or phrasing can come across as being a personal attack where none was intended.

h. The netiquette described above (a-g) often uses the term "posts", but applies equally to Private Messages.

VI. Baseball Fever User Signature Policy

A signature is a piece of text that some members may care to have inserted at the end of ALL of their posts, a little like the closing of a letter. You can set and / or change your signature by editing your profile in the UserCP. Since it is visible on ALL your posts, the following policy must be adhered to:

Signature Composition
Font size limit: No larger than size 2 (This policy is a size 2)
Style: Bold and italics are permissible
Character limit: No more than 500 total characters
Lines: No more than 4 lines
Colors: Most colors are permissible, but those which are hard to discern against the gray background (yellow, white, pale gray) should be avoided
Images/Graphics: Allowed, but nothing larger than 20k and Content rules must be followed

Signature Content
No advertising is permitted
Nothing political or religious
Nothing obscene, vulgar, defamatory or derogatory
Links to personal blogs/websites are permissible - with the webmaster's written consent
A Link to your Baseball Fever Blog does not require written consent and is recommended
Quotes must be attributed. Non-baseball quotes are permissible as long as they are not religious or political

Please adhere to these rules when you create your signature. Failure to do so will result in a request to comply by a moderator. If you do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, the signature will be removed and / or edited by an Administrator. Baseball Fever reserves the right to edit and / or remove any or all of your signature line at any time without contacting the account holder.

VII. Appropriate and inappropriate topics for Baseball Fever:

Most concisely, the test for whether a post is appropriate for Baseball Fever is: "Does this message discuss our national pastime in an interesting manner?" This post can be direct or indirect: posing a question, asking for assistance, providing raw data or citations, or discussing and constructively critiquing existing posts. In general, a broad interpretation of "baseball related" is used.

Baseball Fever is not a promotional environment. Advertising of products, web sites, etc., whether for profit or not-for-profit, is not permitted. At the webmaster's discretion, brief one-time announcements for products or services of legitimate baseball interest and usefulness may be allowed. If advertising is posted to the site it will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the post via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue advertising will be banned from the site. If the advertising is spam-related, pornography-based, or a "visit-my-site" type post / private message, no warning at all will be provided, and the member will be banned immediately without a warning.

It is considered appropriate to post a URL to a page which specifically and directly answers a question posted on the list (for example, it would be permissible to post a link to a page containing home-road splits, even on a site which has advertising or other commercial content; however, it would not be appropriate to post the URL of the main page of the site). The site reserves the right to limit the frequency of such announcements by any individual or group.

In keeping with our test for a proper topic, posting to Baseball Fever should be treated as if you truly do care. This includes posting information that is, to the best of your knowledge, complete and accurate at the time you post. Any errors or ambiguities you catch later should be acknowledged and corrected in the thread, since Baseball Fever is sometimes considered to be a valuable reference for research information.

VIII. Role of the moderator:

When a post is submitted to Baseball Fever, it is forwarded by the server automatically and seen immediately. The moderator may:
a. Leave the thread exactly like it was submitted. This is the case 95% of the time.

b. Immediately delete the thread as inappropriate for Baseball Fever. Examples include advertising, personal attacks, or spam. This is the case 1% of the time.

c. Move the thread. If a member makes a post about the Marlins in the Yankees forum it will be moved to the appropriate forum. This is the case 3% of the time.

d. Edit the message due to an inappropriate item. This is the case 1% of the time. There have been new users who will make a wonderful post, then add to their signature line (where your name / handle appears) a tagline that is a pure advertisement. This tagline will be removed, a note will be left in the message so he/she is aware of the edit, and personal contact will be made to the poster telling them what has been edited and what actions need to be taken to prevent further edits.

The moderators perform no checks on posts to verify factual or logical accuracy. While he/she may point out gross errors in factual data in replies to the thread, the moderator does not act as an "accuracy" editor. Also moderation is not a vehicle for censorship of individuals and/or opinions, and the moderator's decisions should not be taken personally.

IX. Legal aspects of participation in Baseball Fever:

By submitting a post to Baseball Fever, you grant Baseball Fever permission to distribute your message to the forum. Other rights pertaining to the post remain with the ORIGINAL author, and you may not redistribute or retransmit any posts by any others, in whole or in part, without the express consent of the original author.

The messages appearing on Baseball Fever contain the opinions and views of their respective authors and are not necessarily those of Baseball Fever, or of the Baseball Almanac family of sites.

Sincerely,

Sean Holtz, Webmaster of Baseball Almanac & Baseball Fever

    Yankee Stadium [II]

    2009 YANKEE STADIUM SEATING / TICKET PRICING

    The New York Yankees are scheduled to open the new Yankee Stadium in late March or early April 2009. Although prices for most sections haven't been generally disclosed (or possibly established), this thread will be available to post any information we can get our hands on regarding pricing and relocation.

    This is the general section chart currently available:

    The Yankee fan base grew a little too complacent in the first few years of the new stadium. Post season games , especially around 2012, did not sell out and the place was a bit dull. A few seasons of underachieving, according to traditional Yankees standards at least, and now the fan base is hungry. And the stadium is rocking.

    Astros talked about how loud it was at Yankee Stadium:

    "This is a wild place to play," Springer said.

    Correa: "It was crazy. I never heard anything as loud as it was yesterday when Gary hit that double. Loudest I've ever been part of."





    So much for NYS being a fake soulless structure. Lol

    Dynamic pricing and the NYY. 5 different tiers. Bleachers as high as $38 for FST's ?http://mlb.mlb.com/ticketing/pricing...564-1020308443

    2018: Please note that the protective netting is presently located behind home plate, extending between the inside of the Yankees' dugout and the inside of the visitors' dugout. The Yankees are seriously exploring extending the netting prior to the 2018 season to the outside of the Yankees' dugout and the outside of the visitors' dugout, with the height of the netting being reduced as it approaches the dugouts. However, the Yankees are continuing to consult with the architectural firm that designed Yankee Stadium and the netting manufacturer and engineering firms so as to determine the exact height of the netting, the length of the prospective extension of the netting and the manner in which it would be secured to the Stadium.

    For more information on protective netting, please visit yankees.com/netting.


    We all know there are disclaimers on tickets about getting hit with a ball or bat....but that doesn't always hold up in court. I think that little girl who got hurt will eventually get some $$

    Congratulations to Aaron Judge on breaking Mark McGuire's rookie season home run record. Such a classy kid. Just listen to him speak during his post game press conference at NYS.

    Odell Beckham Jr, are you taking notes?? You should be!

    There are a number of "Thumbs Down Guy" t-shirts on the market, of which this is one, that use my image, or a caricature of my image. ALL OF THESE SHIRTS ARE UNAUTHORIZED. THE MANUFACTURERS OF THESE SHIRTS ARE USING MY LIKENESS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.

    I am looking into having official "Thumbs Down Guy" shirts made. Those of you who are interested in "Thumbs Down Guy" t-shirts, please do not buy any of these fake phony fraud bootlegs which are essentially stealing from me.

    FAKE "THUMBS DOWN GUY" T-SHIRTS FAIL!

    Hey, thanks for the info, 7instretch.

    There are so many variations to choose from that I don't know which one to buy? I am however leaning towards the blueish/gray Todd Frazier version in the last photo here. Mainly because the shirt itself looks like one of those very comfortable 47Brand type of shirts.

    Here's the story in the Times:

    Yankee Victory Becomes Footnote After Girl Is Struck by Line Drive

    The Yankees easily completed a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday and bolstered their bid for a postseason berth, but all of that was overshadowed by an unsettling incident in the fifth inning, when a line drive off the bat of Todd Frazier appeared to hit the face of a young girl who was seated directly behind the third-base dugout.

    As players and fans grasped what had occurred, Yankee Stadium grew hushed and play was halted for several minutes. Frazier, the Yankees’ third baseman, knelt down, in clear distress. The Twins’ third baseman, Eduardo Escobar, stood still with both hands on his head. The Yankees’ third-base coach, Joe Espada, knelt, too, and held his helmet in his hands.



    Absolutely horrifying.My heart breaks for that little girl and her family.

    Great thing about Gary is his incredible accuracy - this was spot on the money!

    "Dunaier, who was good-humored about having his moment twisted into a symbol of motivation for the team he dislikes, also accurately called Yankee Stadium a “fake, soulless structure that was built on a parkland stolen from the neighborhood.” "

    The man knows his way around the language.

    I don't bash the Yankees on a regular basis like many Mets fans, but I would like to call them out on this. The NYY used dynamic pricing DURING their pre-sales . The further one was down the pecking order, the higher the prices - way before the public sale. Tickets would start around $35, then jump up a few times, to where the crappiest seats in the upper deck steerage went for $71 plus fees.

    For the wildcard game, the 163rd regular season game, one could pay $156 each and sit in the very last row of section 131 ( at the LF foul pole) or you could spend another $29 and sit in the climate controlled, all-you-can-eat AUDI club. I am sure someone could get $29 worth of steak/shrimp/sushi/deserts/soft drinks instead of seating in the last row of a crappy section.

    Very surprised about dynamic pricing DURING the various pre-sales.
