I can't believe that sportservice doesn't have to answer to somebody from ballpark operations. That's ridiculous.
They've been doing this for years- at the old ballpark- any big spike in walk up (great weather, hot streak,etc)- and they would "choke" on the volume- because only a few ticket windows would be open.

Concession stands closing down in the 7th inning, etc.

I've visited 23 different MLB ballparks- I have NEVER experienced the b.s. that you witness at the Cell.

When I've gone to a different ballpark (usually work travel related) then visited the Cell within a week or so- the difference is "jarring".
