Baseball’s Fun Problem
Baseball has a “fun” problem. The game noticeably stands apart from other professional leagues with its reputation for longer, slower-moving games and expectations for more stoic behavior on the field. Sports are a leading source of entertainment but baseball lags behind their counterparts in many ways when it comes to their image of being stuffy and boring. This was personified by recent comments made by Hall-of-Fame reliever Goose Gossage, blasting behavior he thinks is ruining the game.
