I was at the game today, and I love the idea of King Felix's Court. It allows a section for people to be vocal throughout the game, unlike the rest of the stadium.
And so it got me thinking, are there a lot of regulars there? And would they be open to be more vocal for players outside of Felix? It seems like there is a lot of dead space in that section during the game, and I wonder if perhaps more could be done there.
I was thinking about perhaps injecting some more life into the stadium by implementing Japanese-style cheers into it. I know noisemakers aren't allowed, so it would have to be people's voices making the melody.
For instance, taking a cheer for Narashino HS (starting at 0:54, going to 1:36) and modifying it so that instead of cheering NA-RA-SHI-NO, you'd cheer MU-NE-NO-RI or KA-WA-SA-KI.
Eventually, it'd expand to all batters with a cheer for each one, and then maybe adding some for rallies, etc. I figure if vocal cheering is expected in that section anyways, why not take advantage of it? It'd be like bringing something like the Emerald City Supporters to Safeco Field.
Plus, they did it last year when they did the "Oh-Oh-O-li-vo" chant. And if they can do it for Olivo last year, surely there are more deserving players who could get a cheer first (though eventually he'd get one, or just the same one).
