Think about NASCAR and how they have marketed since the pandemic. They did a fantastic job of showing the drivers in a real light, giving the fans access to the sport. Once they returned to the track, the groundwork had been laid. They have done more to grow the sport in the last 2-4 months, than baseball has in at least 20 years!
Major League Baseball could have owned the weekdays and weekends early this summer, but they messed it up. Now that the PGA, MLS, and NASCAR are back, will people watch baseball? The league has forgotten how to market. Most of MLB's money is that Opening Day, when season tickets are paid for. The MLB business model is broken without fans. However, MLB had to wait, because of their misunderstanding of where they are in the sports landscape and greed.
Will you come back to the sport?
