Baseball Demographics

There are some things in our society which tends to destroy the fabric of our life as a
family. The simple things we so nonchalantly ignore are deteriorating the ability for
families to enjoy togetherness as a unit.

Is there a major ball stadium anywhere in the United States of America barring none which
can report there is not one red cent of taxpayer money helping there business. Maybe the
working blue collar dude is not paying for the brick and mortar building.

Does the city or state provide an incentive rebate or reduced rate of taxation. I'll provide a
little secret the tax break for the head of a blue collar wage earner bellying up to the ticket
window is a joke.

I would be afraid to ask what it would cost to take junior and sis out to the game if
television in the $$millions were not paying to help keep his ticket prices low. Some of our
ballplayers are being begged to suit up and play because a signature for one year less than
multi-$$ six figures is sneered at.

Right now as we go to press there are forces at work to keep low to middle class wage
earners and their families away from the ball park. Back in early days of the game of
baseball blue collar sporting fans jumped a trolley headed out to the park and he still had
jingle left in his pocket when he got home.

I would suggest all professional ball clubs commit to fostering a subsidy for all kids free
entry to any sporting venue. There is simply no way any child under 10 years will be at a
ball park without Mom and Dad or both. If there is room in the car Grandpa will want to
crowd in also.

America has no choice but to see the high salaries the political subsidy play and the
abnormal TV payoffs. Baseball fans will only be played for a sucker just so long then it
time out see you later alligator or after while crocodile. It's been good to know you.
Big daddy moneybags I wish you well in your grand ball stadium with flashing scoreboard
which now reads, "Please Come Back You Hear." Bubba's turnip truck turned around and
came back and he climbed back aboard.

Sign at Bubba's house for the paper boy reads,"Stop the paper indefinitely have gone to
better parts of the world."

Family life with love and concern not money and greed needs some attention by you and

Throw smoke if you will but sooner or later Bam ! over the fence it goes and where it
stops nobody knows.

Any body going my way?
