Can it be? A sport we have played our entire life and enjoy watching is looking to be shut down for the year 2020. What does this mean for the sport as a whole?
Without baseball being played on the highest stage, there will certainly be a decline in interest and people following the game. Players who have been playing for spare change the past years while pursuing their Major League may not continue their pursuit. Also, without having certainty in their goals of achieving baseball even at the college level, it is discouraging.
The decision is not final, but there does not seem to be much progress. We as fans, aspiring players, and coaches wish that money was not the determining factor.
