  • I attended a baseball game on 5/11/09 at BNL high school. I was appalled at the behavior of the student body fans. Throughout the entire game they yelled obscenities at our players (the opposing team). They "flipped off" our players, called them idiots, made fun of their physical attributes, not to mention the continual heckling and name calling that went on. I have attended baseball games for many years and have never seen such conduct. On behalf of the BNL baseball team, they were not a part of this display. They played a very good game and showed great sportsman-like conduct. However, at the conclusion of the game the coach came over to the bleachers and made excuses for the behavior of the student fans, saying that they were just kids. Maybe a primary school student would not know how to act appropriately, but we are talking about high school students. We only had two high school fans that attended the game and I assure you that there was no bantering going on. This was totally BNL students harassing our players in a very derogatory manner.It's a shame to think that those students were the representation of the BNL student body and that this behavior is acceptable.
