    If we truly wanted to play a “World” series, the final games would overlap the Super Bowl.

    Actually, these days, baseball is more a Japanese and Latin American sport than an American sport.
    Baseball’s popularity is not as widespread today in the U.S., compared to when it was considered “America’s national pastime.”

    “Whomever.” It’s “whomever.” I know, I know, the radio sports shock jock would not know the difference, and so it’s in the interest of keeping him in character but…. it still bugs me. I’m sorry. It just does.

    Calling it a “World Series” when for most of its decades it only had teams in one country (a whopping two countries these days, but only one team in the “other” country) was always pretty arrogant. That said, I wish baseball was still an Olympic sport (and played by amateurs.)

    There unfortunately are fewer and fewer ball diamonds and little league fields, and even fewer Parks and Rec employees and volunteers willing to put in the time. Basketball and football are the “glamour” sports now, with the “promise” of an education and a quick paycheck. Too many don’t understand that only an elite few, in any sport, get that paycheck. In the inner city, it’s even worse. More and more parks being turned into “recreational” instead of sports oriented parks, or being developed.

    You have to ask yourself, why are soccer, baseball, and basketball favorite sports worldwide, compared to American football, or hockey ?
    The answer is economically simple – particularly for soccer and basketball. Neither sport require elaborate, expensive equipment, and any kid whose played “sandlot baseball” can tell you that you don’t need fancy uniforms, bats and gloves to have a terrific time !
    What we tend to forget, in our adulation of professional, overpaid athletes, is that sports and sportsmen and sportswomen evolve from the games of their youth.
    When I used to officiate youth soccer and a parent in the stands would get overly vociferous and distracting, at the first opportunity, I would go over to the loudmouth adult, say nothing, but hand him or her one of the buttons, I used to carry in my pockets. It simply said It’s a Kids Game !
    We, as adults, tend to forget, that professional sports are really a kid’s game played by grownups !
