Texas A&M baseball fans will flock to Omaha to see their team play in the College World series, however they’ll have to do so without their bubbles.
The Texas A&M baseball program has a rich history and plenty of tradition that makes the team fun to watch. One of those relatively recent additions to that tradition has been the bubble machine. When an Aggie hits a Whammy or wows on the field the Aggie faithful respond with bubbles.
Their won’t be any bubbles allowed at the College World Series. The games will be held at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska. According to TD Ameritrade Park’s website the following items are not permitted inside the park:
- Any item deemed to compromise public safety
- Bottles or cans
- Bubbles, Bubble making materials and bubble making devices
- Drones are not permitted on MECA’s campus
- Food or drink coolers
- Frisbees or beach balls
- Hover boards
- Illegal drugs and alcohol
- Large bags or backpacks larger than 14″ x 14″ x 6″
- Large umbrellas
- Laser pointers
- Noise making devices of any kind (i.e. bells, whistles, horns, etc.)
- Outside food or drink (20 oz. or smaller empty clear plastic bottles will be allowed for water)
- Professional cameras (4″ or greater)
- Signs or banners without the prior approval of MECA
- Tablets or selfie-sticks
- Weapons of any kind, including lawfully concealed firearms
That’s right. Bubble machines made it on the same list as concealed firearms, fireworks, and illegal drugs. The prohibition hasn’t stopped Texas A&M fans from sneaking in a bubble blowing device before. Aggies sent Minute Maid Park security on a goose chase hunting for a smuggled bubble machine during the Shriners’ College Classic in Houston.
Bubbles or not. Be there. Be loud. And BTHO Louisville.
