Well, what Mazey says not only makes sense, I believe that he is also right. I’ve thought for years that college baseball should be a summer sport. Of course, like many, many other things in life, because it just makes sense is very likely the exact reason it won’t happen. I mean, why the hell would we want to do anything that makes sense?
3rd manager. Play in the summer. Increase schollies. Take a look at the MLB attendance in April. It’s very low and starts to increase in May, June, July ……. then the Pirates are below .500 and it goes back down…. but that’s not the point.
But playing at the end of May and June for regular season games would push the B12 Championship and College World Series into July and Aug. What does this do to graduating SR’s? That could be a big problem for many programs.
