No, that is not the intent of the rule.

It could if you really wanted it to. But this rule is only about 2 years old and they were banging on bleachers since I was a kid. This is not why the rule was changed. The rule was changed because of the cell phones, megaphones, slap sticks, rocks in the milk carton type objects that were being used by fans. And they wanted to create the rule to prevent bands from playing during play, which was happening much more.

It would not be common sense to penalize a team for making noice in which the gym provides.
