It’s Time For Major League Baseball To Give Back
today at 9:36 am
It’s time for baseball to give back. Yes, the MLB. I’m talking about you Major League Baseball. The billion-dollar owners and the million-dollar players. You need to play for us this season. After all, without us, there is no you.
As a kid, I spent all my money on baseball cards and baseball games. Let’s not forget all the team gear. The hundred dollar jerseys, forty dollar hats.
As an adult, I still buy White Sox paraphernalia, while my wife dresses in Cubs regalia. Let’s not be remiss, we spend a shit ton of money on both of our girls, decking them out in Cubs and Sox gear. Oh yeah, and how much have we spent at the stadiums? The $10 beers, the $10 ice creams, $7 hot dogs, and everything else that is single-handedly pricing a normal family out of a game.
I have listened to both sides, and I’m starting to feel to bit angry. Honestly, it’s off-putting for my wife and I. We are trying to stay afloat in the city of Chicago with all of their taxes. Speaking of taxes, isn’t our tax money paying for some of those stadiums and salaries?
I’m not going to have a pissing match, but it’s time baseball got their shit in gear, and take the field for the fans. Do it for the love of the game. We are all trying to shelter in place and we miss the game. We need you to raise our spirits, to take our minds off the pressure. We are counting on you guys, to get us through these dog days of summer.
Also, watch your back. One day soon you won’t have this much power over the people. Ever heard of a little thing called eSports?
Get ready to share some of that revenue. You’ve had your time in the sun. Give back to the fans now, so they continue to support you when you need it most.
