I had a similar experience (the same only different) when I went to a Giants 
game at AT&T Park.  An usher saw that I kept having to take Chase out into 
the aisle so people could get by and reach their seats.  So he moved my wife 
and I  (and Chase one section over to the seats in the very back row, in an 
area right in front of the press box behind home plate.  The area around the 
seats was more spacious and no one had to get by Chase to get to a seat.

I guess it's different in that he did it when he saw the dog, not because I 
notified the ball park I was bringing him.  However, when we entered the 
park, the security guy at the gate did radio our seat location to the 
command center to let them know the location of a guide dog.  I assume that 
was in case they had an evacuation of something.  We do have earthquakes 
during baseball season (cf 1989 World Series).
