Opening day: The fans were avid, and the neighbors were livid -- some of them at least. On a neighborhood list, there are several reports of police bullhorns at five o-clock in the morning outside of people's homes near Scott Ave. and other south-side of Elysian Park areas. Despite the police presence, booming car radios made their speakers felt. As one cranky resident put it, the police are supposed to keep things orderly, not add to the noise. (Whom do you call when the police are even noisier than the yahoos? The fire department?) Take me out to the ballgame -- quietly, if you will!
