Here is an example of the fake crowd noise the Mets are experimenting with at Citi Field.
A low murmur, then a cheer when Fargas connects, then a louder cheer when Nimmo makes a nice catch. pic.twitter.com/otLZbFTXBk

New info on the fake crowd noise:
* Every team is using it
* MLB is giving clubs the sounds (but teams can have their own) & a touchpad device to use it
* There are 75 effects/reactions
* MLB-provided sound is derived from audio recorded for "MLB The Show" at real MLB games
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the entertainment-baudrillardian complex.
