Baseball Fever - Why Hasn't Anyone Caught It?
Unfortunately for the participants, there is little buzz about the event. College baseball just hasn't caught on like football and basketball. The NFL is the most popular sport in America right now, but college football is not far behind. In other words, there's an audience for both the professional and college game. So why hasn't this same thing occurred in baseball?
We think a couple of the reasons are the lack of exposure on network television and the fact that the school year is over when the college baseball playoff begins, so the support on campus is lacking. What else do you think is contributing to college baseball's failure as a mainstream college sport?
Don't just tell us who you think will win these scuffles, tell us why? Who else in college sports would you pay to see get in the ring?
