The Other Side of Baseball’s Success Story

Last year’s phenomenal Game Seven ratings might mask some deeper truths about the game’s long-term prospects.

“Selig’s annual statements about the health of the game were not pulled out of the air but reflected in the financial data and products being offered to fans. His successor, Rob Manfred, will almost certainly continue to report on the financial health of baseball. While these reports may be factual, they do not quite represent the entire truth.”
