MLB to consider switching from games to Home Run Derbys

Major Leage Baseball Comissioner Rob Manfred made some news on Sunday when he announced that MLB may consider forgoing traditional games in favor of Home Run Derbys.

home run derby

“The fact is that people tune in for the Home Run Derby.” Manfred states. “It is the most watched baseball event that we have. I mean have you seen our viewer statistics? People would rather watch Food Network reruns than watch a World Series Game 7. I mean, the games are boring. We know that. We have tried to spice it up but there’s only so much we can do.”

Last season the Home Run Derby was delayed because of rain yet still managed to draw 5.4 million viewers. Whereas a Sunday Night Baseball game is averaging around 1.2 million viewers each week.

“We see that our audience demographic is changing.” Manfred continued. “Our average viewer is over 50 years of age and we need to try to attract the younger fans. So from now on, let’s just let them see what they want.”

Would the new format cheapen the game?

“I have heard critics say that it would “cheapen the game” by just focusing on home runs but that’s ridiculous. Major League Baseball has never just focused on home runs. And we never will. We would never stoop to that level. This is America’s pastime. We just want to get it back to where it once was.”

“But remember Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa? Oh man, those were good times.”
