Awesome Tip: Baseball Is Losing Popularity and Ratings – Phone Call With Sports Illustrated



Baseball is a dying sport and it is their own fault. It’s no surprise that kids today are more interested in Fortnite players than baseball players, solely based on distribution and availability to the content. Making decisions strictly for short term gains is the worst thing you can do for the longevity of a business.

Check out the article that I did with Sports Illustrated on the future of Baseball here:

  1. The game had changed coaches ain't coaching no more they're laying back and waiting for someone hit long ball. There no hit n run, sealing bases, squeeze play. Dam i miss Billy's Ball. Ricky's, Vince, sealing bases Wally Beckman drag bunt. Dam I am tried seeing base loaded no man out and nobody's score and 1st n 3rd with no out…..coaches allowing 8th and 9th swing bat ( K, then double play)

  2. Lets be real…NOT ENOUGH AMERICAN BLACK PLAYERS! They gave the game some flare. All of the great black baseball players are retired or passed on. Now its nothing but a bunch of brads, chads & latin americans. BORING!!

  3. Baseball is not a dying sport. It is the second grossing sport in the entire world. NFL – 11 billion, MLB – 9 billion, NBA – 6 billion, Premier League – 5 billion, NHL 4 billion. Baseball still completely dominates NASCAR and XGames and other 'cooler' sports.

  4. i like this guy…he has a point, no bullshiet talking around, facts
    u know what u.s. sports are missing also? a ultra fansector with bengals, flags and chants
    thats what brings goosebumps athomsphere and why people want to be there live in a stadium, otherwise i could watch from home

  5. I wanna say something. Gary, I don't believe baseball is a dying sport. The money they're making is insane. But the reason why there were so many baseball stars in the 80s and 90s is because of how they marketed themselves. I'm only 18. I want a Rickey Henderson, a Barry Bonds, an A-Rod, a Ken Griffey Jr., a Manny Ramirez. We got those guys when it comes to talent, not personality. We need a Rickey Henderson, Ken Griffey type personality back into America's pastime.

  6. The game is slow and not really associated with culture at large. It doesnt relate to millenials because of that. NFL has sort of the same problem except for the mega stars like odell beckham.

  7. Baseball is dying because it's boring as fuck and always has been. 97degrees,
    100% humidity sitting in the sweltering sun to watch some idiot walk up
    to a plate, knock dirt off their shoes 100 times, take a thousand
    practice swings, knock some more dirt off their shoes, more practice
    swings, the pitch, strike one then the whole process starts over again.
    And no one can hand me that line of shit about psyching each other out
    either. If you are that good to play at that level, you should be
    beyond being "psyched out" due to training and experience not to mention
    the enormous cash you are paid. I have spoken to millennials and they
    all say that when they are "forced" to go to a game for one reason or
    another, they all surf the internet, text, etc on ipads or iphones
    because they are bored out of their minds and are gone by the 3rd
    inning. I'm 56 years old and I have felt the same way since I went to
    my first game. Now, here in Cincinnati, the reds "need" a new fucking
    score board to the tune of 4 million dollars. For what? to show an
    empty house? Bye Bye baseball!

  8. You can't do anything with baseball being boring it's the game a few people will find it entertaining. In my eyes is like watching some group on the park playing their game with a board as the protagonist no pace just killing time

  9. Only if the “good old boys” club would listen. Gary V for commissioner! How about a legitimate World Series played between the champions around the globe akin to the Champions League in fútbol. WBC opened the Americans eyes to how good the rest of the world actually is.

  10. I'm English and I got into baseball recently thanks to its YouTube presence (which barely gets any views). But I also love cricket. And I love football (the soccer-kind) and like the NFL. Sports is not an either/or situation. You can like every single one of them.

  11. I hate to say it but this is something nobody wants to mention. I believe that the high rate of Hispanic players, whose names are hard to spell and remember, are a part of the reason the MLB is losing interest among American fans. Names such as Gleyber Torres, Giancarlo Stanton, Yonder Alonso, Yolmer Sanchez, Yuli Gurriel, Asdrubal Guerrero, etc, don't exactly roll off the tongue. There have been great Hispanic players for many years, but many had names that people could pronounce without the help of a name card. Nobody else is saying it, so I will.

  12. Problem is these guys are extremely private personalities. The guys who put themselves out there have and continue to do so. The baseball player and the basketball player personality are extremely different in nature. Ballplayers aren't mic'd up nowadays because they all talk like men. Which is to say the cursing on TV is supposedly not good for kids to hear. MLB may have dug their own grave but they are also falling into the pit of the PC culture. Just like wrestling. The attitude era fans will never love the new product where they freeze frame chair shots and aren't allowed to bleed.

  13. Ironic how popular baseball has gotten in East Asia, while the Ameri-mutts and their constantly falling IQ average think its boring. Enjoy your shitty CTE concussion American "Foot"ball then

  14. It's simple. NFL and NBA is just more exciting to watch. Constant plays, little downtime, one player can control the entire game. Ex, curry, LeBron, Brady. Whereas baseball there is a lot of downtime and the only activity is pitcher, batter,. It's not stimulating enough for the average viewer.

  15. Rob Manfred just came out acting dumbfounded why the ratings were so low for a high profile World Series like BOS vs LA. Everybody's attention is on the NFL and NBA!
