Million Dollar Question – Does Opening Day In Australia Excite You??
No build-up is necessary for this one – a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ question.
And my answer is simple – No.
Baseball is America’s past-time. People in America take off the day from work and skip school to attend Opening Day. I don’t know how popular our game is in Australia, but I do not believe that it ranks very high.
Am I for making the sport more appealing in other countries? Sure. But, not at the expense of the fans it already has? I don’t know if these games between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks count has home games for either team, but one of these two fan bases is losing home games and a chance to be at Opening Day. And that sucks.
Why on Earth would MLB advocate this??? SMH.
