I heard Don La Greca on TMKS last week make a really good point which was basically that horse racing and boxing were once the most popular sports in America and now nowhere near the top. If it can happen to these sports it can happen to baseball who isn’t invincible despite what the players and owners seem to think.
Now I love horse racing and watch it every single day but even I can’t deny that it’s glory days are long gone. Too many people that watch/bet 3 races a year. Anyway you get the point, horse racing and boxing are the example of what could happen to baseball.
