Baseball brainstorm: Save the environment, ditch MLB’s traditional three-game series

Jumping ahead slightly:

EXPERIMENT: What’s so sacred about the three-game series?

Hannah Keyser: Teams should play fewer, longer series and the schedule should be determined based on ease of geography. All in all: Less overall travel mileage. This year that’s important because cramming as many games into as few days as possible requires stepping on some of the CBA-negotiated off days and lessening those cross-country flights should help make that possible. But in the long run: This is the biggest and most important step baseball can take to cut down on carbon emissions. Going from three- or four-game series to six-game series would be such a tremendous step towards making the sport more sustainable and I don’t really see a downside.

Call the initiative ... ~sustaina-ball~.
