Can you explain why the comma used in sentence 1 is not correct as compared to the comma used in sentence 2? (from homework)

1. The stadium, that my favorite team plays in, seats over 81,000 people.

2. My father, who is an excellent reader, finished a 500 page book in one day!

  2. So...
    In sentence 1, the adjective clause is needed to let us know what stadium we're talking about. So we don't need to use a comma.

    In sentence 2, the adjective clause is not needed because we already mentioned my father as the subject. So, a comma can be used to set off the extra information about my father.
