quite so. last time I went to a game I without exaggeration couldn't talk to the person next to me for most of it because it was simply too loud. the modern experience of a baseball game is enduring a wall of sound up until one half second before the pitcher's delivery (which the rules say still must be delivered without distraction, although i'm sure that'll change soon enough), and then again the moment the pitch passes the batter or he makes contact. it is unbearable.
ironically, minor league baseball, perennial moneymaking spectacle, is much quieter and truer to what attending a baseball game felt like in 1960.
