Before anybody asks seeing how I am a Drive employee, no I am not one of the employees that was ticketed. I would never sell beer to somebody not wearing a wristband at the ballpark. As a person who has done ID bracelets with the Drive before, I have to say it can be very hard to tell a fake from a real ID sometimes with all the different state and even country ones that come through. You have to be very cautious and alert. Every single person that comes through the ID station no matter how old they look must have an ID to get a bracelet. We also have to look out for people taking off their wristbands and giving it to somebody under 21 along with somebody purchasing a beer for one of their friends who is under 21. If you do see people at the 500 Club or ID stations not following the rules, please contact us. Thanks. I do know people who work at the 500 Club/give out wristbands and will not discuss who was ticketed:

That's one of the main reasons I card everybody. It makes the ones who are old enough to be my grandpa feel young again.

But the law is the law. If you do not like the law do somthing to get it changed. If one of them had left the ballpark under the influence and killed a family member you would feel different.

Just trying to keep it light... I mean, if it was 12 year olds or something else, I'd feel differently.

Lol. It is very easy to get set up and busted, that's why you should card everyone regardless of age.
