Baseball or the beach?
The Dodgers changed the starting time of three day games from 1:30 to 4 p.m. and said they were trying to make their fans happier.
"We have received complaints from fans who said that they would like to go to the beach and the ballgame but can't do both," General Manager Buzzie Bavasi said. "We also realize that it's uncomfortable for the fans, sitting in the sun in an uncovered stadium."
Maybe that's the real reason so many people bring beach balls to baseball games.
