Baseball TV: Doofus Alert

Every broadcast focuses upon hitters. Which means, of course, that you see fans behind home plate and near the dugout (depending on the camera angle and whether the hitter is left-handed or right-handed).

Will those who are in the field of vision stop talking on their cellphones and waving as though they were survivors of a shipwreck at the TV cameras? You look like idiots. Can you do something to preserve your dignity? Perhaps tip your hat, smile, act like you've been in those seats say ten times previously?

Because collectively you're getting to be pretty hard to take.

Unless, of course, the team you favor is mashing the ball and leading its division.
