Baseball is booming and doesn’t need all this tinkering – New York Post

Friday, July 14, 2017

I must confess, I missed the great exodus of baseball fans. I must have mistaken as an illusion all those heads I see buried every single night during the summer, scouring scores, firing up the MLB package to watch games on their cell phones that aren’t being shown on the saloon TV. I must have missed all those empty seats at the ballpa … Wait, what’s that you say? There…

Friday, July 14, 2017

Rays outfielder Colby Rasmus was on the disabled list with a hip injury heading into the All-Star break, but now he might miss the rest of the season with what sounds like an unrelated matter.  The Rays released a statement:  Rays Tampa Bay Times beat writer Marc Topkin further reports that Rasmus isn’t expected to return to the team this season. On the field, he was having a productive offensive…

Sports Today: 5 ways to make baseball even better – MyDaytonDailyNews

Thursday, July 13, 2017

There is still no baseball today, but that just gives us another chance to talk about how great baseball is — and how to keep it that way.  Let’s get this straight before we go too far: Baseball is not dying.  That’s a silly, dumb, lazy narrative that gets too much play from people who should know…

Have an idea to make baseball better? Share it with us – Minneapolis Star Tribune

Thursday, July 13, 2017

See more of the story We’re not going to get into an argument over whether baseball is “in trouble.” That’s an old discussion and the answer can be framed in so many ways. The position here is that baseball is doing just fine. But like almost everything that’s doing just fine, baseball could be better. One of the issues addressed by commissioner Rob Manfred over the All-Star Game break was…

If baseball can’t keep kids playing, it will slowly go extinct – New York Post

Thursday, July 13, 2017

When Rob Manfred became Major League Baseball commissioner in August 2014, he didn’t just talk about focusing on youth participation. He put his words into action, investing money and time in several initiatives to increase the number of kids playing the sport. Three years later, the numbers aren’t necessarily booming, but leaders in youth baseball are optimistic about the strides being made, and pointed to the Commissioner’s Office as a…

Three All-Stars. Can you name them? (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky) Baseball’s All-Star game once marked a peak in the summer sports calendar. This All-Star game finished second in the overnight Nielsens to “America’s Got Talent.” Its 6.5 rating was a tick above from last year’s all-time low of 6.4. This after a highly hyped Home Run Derby won by Aaron Judge, a fresh face who plays in New York. This after…

An East Coast Baseball Tour, Part I – Twinkie Town

Thursday, July 13, 2017

At the tail end of June — which is already somehow over a week ago — I embarked upon the sportiest vacation I’d ever dreamed of (which is a sentence that sports-loathing childhood me would look upon in disgust.) It was seven full days of nonstop action, lots of bus riding, and most of all: baseball. For one week, me, my dad, and 23 others were escorted via charter bus…

Column: Can’t somebody speed up the game of baseball? – FOXSports.com

Thursday, July 13, 2017

That didn’t last long. A day after basking in the glow of the most watched All-Star Home Run Derby in nearly a decade, reality intruded on baseball. Though fans still seems to dig the long ball, they don’t seem too keen about the game itself. That’s a real problem for the sport, though it’s hard to blame fans for not tuning in for the All-Star Game. Those in Miami were…

Thursday, July 13, 2017

To weigh in on the present and future of baseball, The Post organized an All-Star panel of players past and present, an MLB competition committee member and two Hall of Fame voters.

Why baseball purists will always be wrong – New York Post

“Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” — Marcel Proust David Wright avoids cliché and groupthink. He listens to a question and provides an answer, and the question I asked in spring was essentially this: If you were the czar of baseball and could change anything about the game — pace of play, travel, fan experience, etc. — with just a decree, no…

Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment Major League Baseball’s best players were in Miami for the All-Star Game this week, just a two-hour drive away from Port St. Lucie, where a former NFL quarterback is trying to make his way through the minors. What do All-Stars think of Tim Tebow’s baseball journey? We asked a few for their thoughts on what he has to do to keep moving…
