If Major League Baseball (MLB) is genuinely listening to what its fans are saying – Joe Torre and Rob Manfred – here you have it – with no spin…
Reflections On Baseball publishes widely on many Facebook Groups for Mets, Yankees, and general fans of baseball. I write, then readers read, and often a discussion ensues via the comment section Facebook provides.
Yesterday, I wrote a column titled “The Disappearing Breed Of The Casual Baseball Fan”. It received wide readership, but more importantly, the story sparked an interest among fans to reply with comments and their reasons why baseball has witnessed a decrease in attendance and TV viewership that reached its lowest point since 2003, and even more significantly, what these fans would do if only they could be Commissioner of Baseball for a day.
If I can locate the email addresses for the powers that be at MLB (can you help?), I will forward this article to them. Comments that follow are naked and are not touched by my hand.
