Quote of the Day (George F. Will, on a Ballpark’s ‘Loudest Noise’)

“At a baseball park, the loudest noise should be supplied by the spectators.” ―George F. Will, A Nice Little Place on the North Side: Wrigley Field at One Hundred (2014)

Will’s starting point for this remark, as indicated by his subtitle, is his beloved, venerable Wrigley Park. Mine in this photo is the far newer PNC Park, home of baseball’s Pirates, which I saw one morning, several hours before gametime, on a visit to Pittsburgh last year. (For another angle on this latter park, see this other image I took and posted last year.)
