I agree with your point.
They should have a policy to allow these people (mascots, cheer crews, djs, reporters, etc.) to do this sort or stuff or not. If not, have a designated area to go to. That way, if his Dad wants to do the interview, he can go up to the concourse or be brought up to a booth. This is usually a call by the team brass and the media relations/marketing areas.
