The thrill of interleague play will go the way of the exercise bicycle in the attic—great in the beginning but forgotten after a few weeks when the novelty wears off. Baseball should be more concerned with speeding up the game by increasing the postage-stamp-sized strike zone, thus cutting down the number of pitches thrown. It's boring to watch the pitcher and the catcher playing catch.
EDWARD W. BRADLEY, Milltown, N.J.
Why can't baseball remain pristine? The owners, salivating over making a few extra bucks, can always think up gimmicks, but the game is the thing. No, volcanoes didn't erupt when the first interleague pitch was thrown, but the game was dumbed down just a little further. How sad.
