Its opening day! Time to enjoy my favorite pastime. I predict that the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs will make it to the World Series! (On the other hand it is April 1st.)
What is not a joke is this announcement -
MLB ticket prices increase 2.5 percent this season
Apparently the exorbitant salaries being negotiated in baseball these days demands more sacrifice from the fans. Why athletic skills warrant millions of dollars is probably a joke. It becomes more ludricous when some of the aging superstars spend more time healing their aging bones rather than playing. Still the sport is entertaining - hopefully team owners and the players union will realize that there is a limit to what fans will consider good business practises.
