...in what looks like a giant barn from the outside, but is actually quite a nice-looking baseball park on the inside.

I wonder how fans were allowed in but none during the regular season.

turns out sports might need "bums in seats" in order to keep people captivated.

 

 

Two games into the 2020 World Series, and the score of the series is Los Angeles Dodgers 1, Tampa Bay Rays 1, MLB ratings 0.

 

Wednesday’s Game 2 of the World Series drew only 8.950M viewers, according to Awful Announcing, making it the least-watched World Series game of all time. It breaks a record set just 24 hours earlier, when Game 1 opened the Fall Classic with a ratings thud.

 

_________________

 

MLB’s ratings could improve if the series stays competitive, but for now, it seems in danger of shattering the record for lowest average viewership of a World Series. Awful Announcing notes that the lowest average viewership on record is 12.636 million viewers for the 2012 World Series, which was a San Francisco Giants sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

tampa is a smaller TV market, but florida certainly isn't as a whole, and of course los angeles is huge.  that's not good.

The Rays walked off the Dodgers tonight with an amusing climax.

Series is tied 2-2. Will be going at least six games.

that ending was something. consider that winning run would not even have turned the corner if not for the bobble by the outfielder. then he commits a running error. then the catcher really muffs it because of confusion.

I suspect that at the very least the tying run would have made it in anyway, then leading to a win or forcing extra innings.

Rockies to host 2021 All-Star Game

https://www.mlb.com/...b-all-star-game

 

Second time for the Rockies to be host, 1998 being the first.
 

MLB chose the Rockies because they were already in the bidding process to host a future All-Star Game. The Rockies had supplied a detailed plan for hotel, event space and security that took months to assemble, and MLB staff had already made several site visits to Denver. In addition, Governor Jared Polis and Mayor Michael Hancock have both committed to provide the necessary facilities and services needed to support this year’s festivities.

 

 

 

With the thin air in Denver due to the higher altitude, would expect the all-star game and home run derby to be mashfests.

 

The Dodgers are scheduled to host the mid-season events next year.

That was quick. There will be some disappointed fans in Atlanta
