Question DSLR at MLB Game (Astros)

Headed to the Astros game tomorrow. Has anyone attempted to bring a zoom lens with them? Website says cameras Are allowed as long as the lens isn't longer than 8". My 70-200 is right at 8" in length without the hood.

Can't decide if I want to bring it or not. Wouldn't want to have to leave it in the truck for someone to steal.

I carried one in a few years ago. You'll be right at the limit so it could go either way.

Decided to leave it at home. Had enough trouble balancing food/beverages/ice cream without having to worry about a DSLR strapped around my neck! lol

I owned a Sony RX10 IV for a while and the lens went to 600mm (220 on 1" sensor) but looked like a regular point and shoot. Got this last year on a walk-off against the Bluejays.
