Do you actually think before you type? Is this suggestion really serious? Place yourself in the perspective of the business. I am willing to bet that a substantial amount of revenue is generated through concession sales from the grossly inflated beer prices.
If this policy was instated than in order to make up for the lost revenue ticket prices would be inflated resulting in both drinkers and non drinkers alike footing the difference in lost revenues.
Aside from depleted revenue resulting from your proposed policy, do you adamantly believe that this one beer maximum will keep the drunks away from the baseball games? C'mon man. As was stated before most drinking is done before fans enter the stadiums. Beer is merely purchased to maintain your current buzz.
From as far back as I can remember, attending a baseball game has always been synonymous with hot dogs and booze! Learn to deal with it or don't attend the games.
