Sports Over Beers, ep 29: How to save MLB from its slow death Posted by 1500ESPN | 3 days ago The Sports Over Beers sits down on the couch at Cowboy Jacks downtown with a couple Shock Tops and stages an intervention for baseball. The fundamental problems facing baseball in the next 10 years. 1) Young people don’t care about it as much as they used to. It’s hard work to be a baseball fan. 2) MLB is failing to properly market nationally. The crew discussed a few ideas on the podcast about how to improve the game that the hosts love and want to see survive and thrive. Those include: Expansion, relegation/promotion, like European soccer; Increase scoring; Speed up the pace of play (Pitch clock, no leaving the batter's box); Improve marketing/accessibility; Stop blacking out in-market game on MLB.tv. It's a wide-ranging discussion that touches on some of the core problems in MLB. [Click to listen]
