article imageOp-Ed: This Baseball Season Is Too Long

By Oscar Brooks     Nov 4, 2009 in Sports
Did anyone notice that on November 4, 2009, Major League Baseball is still being played. Game 6 of the World Series is tonight in Yankee Stadium.
This season is too long. The Major League Baseball season started way back in early April. That was about seven months ago. It was still cold and snowing in some towns when the season started and it is cold and snowing in some cities right now. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig complained several years ago about baseball being played in the fall in very cold weather. Well Bud, this one's for you.
When I was a kid, the World Series was quite an event. Sometimes we skipped school to watch it. It was worth it most of the time. In those days the games were played during the day and the Series started at the very beginning of October. You hardly got the really cold weather at that time of the month. I know baseball has expanded teams and playoffs since then. There is still no reason to be playing baseball in November. We are in the middle of the NFL season and near the end of the college football season. What gives!
If the weather cooperates there will be baseball tonight at Yankee Stadium. If not, baseball will be played again tomorrow night. By the way, the Philadelphia Phillies are the Yankees opponent. Should the Yankees win tonight, they will be champions of baseball for the 27th time. For these two teams, the baseball off season will be short because spring training starts in early March 2010.
