For some New York Mets fans, a designated quiet area without loud music or cheering in their home stadium of Citi Field would be nothing short of blasphemy.
But in an email to their fans Wednesday, the baseball team introduced the proposal, before revealing the section's motive: to accommodate autistic children.
'The Mets are considering adding a designated "quiet" seating section with lower volume PA announcements and no music or cheerleading. How likely would you be to purchase tickets in that section?' the email obtained by the New York Post asked.

Apple has just unveiled a "guided access" feature for iOS 6 that will allow "parents, teachers, or administrators" to lock children within individual applications by disabling the device's physical home button and the ability to travel back out of an application.
Apple specifically mentioned that the technology would be useful for children with autism, claiming that "we were surprised at how many kids with autism have been using the phones, but there are controls in apps you don't want them hitting."
Guided access will allow users "confine touch input to certain parts of the screen" to fine-tune their child's experience. Apple says the feature will be "especially useful for test taking or helping someone with a disability stay focused on learning."
