Don't dare wear a Dodgers jersey in fancy seats at a D-Backs game

Monday April 13th, 2015

Apparently the best seats in the house at Chase Field also come with a strict dress code. 

On Sunday, a Dodgers fan sitting behind home plate was forced by Diamondbacks officials to cover up his blue shirt with a D-Backs jersey and take off his LA hat. It wasn't the act of a rogue employee; this is team policy.

"At the time of purchase, we ask that those fans sitting in the home plate box, which is visible on TV, wear either neutral colors or D-backs attire which the team will provide," a Diamondbacks spokesperson told HardballTalk

This isn't the first time this has happened. In 2013, Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick forced a few Dodgers fans to cover up their blue gear. One of the fans told Deadspin that her seven-year-old daughter was "scared and confused" about having to change her clothes. 

The Dodgers won, 7-4.
