There are terms, conditions and policies that all ticketholders agree to when they make their purchase. It's also a private enterprise operating out of a private facility. There's no conspiracy here, just common sense. The Dbacks would be within their rights to simply kick them out and grant a refund, as they should be.

The same laws that let operators throw people out or bar entry for offensive, obscene, racist etc... t-shirts, signs etc... is the same catch-all that lets the Dbacks do this sort of thing. There's absolutely nothing wrong with asking someone to kindly move if they are disruptive to the people around them or the environment. In this case, the club was protecting its image on TV by not having opposing fans in the camera view 24/7 directly behind the plate. Kendrick compensated them and offered up another suite.

The laws that enable dress codes are a good thing. It's really not that much to ask of someone to observe a few simple rules, $3,000 or $3 ticket.
