Major League Baseball on the Decline in the United States

by Kenneth Watkins
3/23/06

After watching Japan celebrated there emotional win over Team Cuba in the Inaugural World Baseball Classic made me think about American Baseball. Abner Doubleday invented the game we now call our National Pastime, even though we couldn't beat a team from Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. Let’s look and see why we have fallen so far is such a short time.

Growing up in small towns baseball was a rite of passage for young boys. We didn't really know there were other sports past baseball. Baseball fields were being built all the time and now that’s not happening anymore. The United States has been invaded by a new criminal called soccer. I know it’s a sport people love to play and I really have nothing against it. Soccer is a sport where most kids can play no matter their talent level. It doesn't work that way in baseball.

The same baseball fields I played on as a kid is now used exclusively for soccer. Kids don't want to play baseball like they use to as soccer has become the sport of choice. This is one of the reasons for decline in our ability to compete on the International level. If you have less of a pool to draw from the talent level will suffer. Now don't get me wrong this isn't the only reason we have been suffering through trying times in International competition.

Pride is another factor that plays into it. Other countries players play for the love of the game not the money. Money is secondary in most countries where here in the United States it's different. Take the World Baseball Classic many of our players that could have played decided not to. We have a lot of young talent that we could have brought and never did for various reasons. Today's players just don't have the pride for the game that we did when we were growing up. It's a real shame as are National pastime is slowing being pushed to the back burner and our youth are missing out on something real special.
