    The sports with high percentage of blacks always do better ratings wise typically nfl and nba.

    Baseball a white and hispanic sport. White people dont really like black people like that but will always watch them for entertainment.

    I speaking more on the youth. They need to get the kids excited and market their AA players to these kids, build more ballparks and make little league/traveling baseball teams affordable so these kids can learn the sport earlier.

    That’s sad man. My nephew don’t even know baseball rules. He is a 19 year old 2 sport athlete. I just assumed when we were playing mlb the show he knew. He was clueless AF.

    Games too long, need to speed them up....any reason they need to stay 9 innings? :ld:

    Season waaay too long, 162 games :huhldup:

    They’re worse than the NFL at marketing their stars, maybe because many of them are foreign now or rural white boys, but shyt, find a way to get them into commercials, late night shows, viral clips, etc

    Add to the live experience, baseball is still a cool sport to see live, waste a day at a stadium on a warm spring day, promote that and add more to the experience to draw in younger (high school - mid 20 something’s) spectators on their own

    This also speaks to a fukking weird ass 25 and under generation, especially teens and younger, who are addicted to screens and don’t go out, socialize, play outside, deal with real people...weirdo rather text, snap, or game versus rounding up people and asking a parent to go to a game or if their parents take them, they’re paying not one lick of attention

    America is too bougie to “make shyt affordable.”

    The rest of the world can’t rub two nickels together but they figure out how to develop kids in soccer. They figure it out with baseball academies. shyt is unnecessarily costly here
