OAKLAND–To make baseball more enjoyable for the fans today’s fan is into offense, today’s fan isn’t into defense back in the day we got to go to a game and we got to see some of the world’s greatest pitchers. The first game I ever saw was my first MLB game in 1957 and the incredible Hall of Famer Warren Span was on the mound for the then Milwaukee Braves. He was pitching and he pitched until he was 42 years old.

Those guys back in those days were phenomenal we were used to seeing games that were 1-0, 2-0, and 2-1 and for us those were exciting games but today’s fans have been taught to be offense oriented. They’ve been taught that though basketball, through football, and they’ve even been taught that through baseball because of the Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, and Sammy Sosa era and put all the PED things aside.

Just because of the explosive home runs the excitement of that era and everything else they set the tone for that and now all of a sudden they want to go back and make it the 2-1 game. It’s never going to go back you want to sell the game? Sell the game of home runs.
