I enjoy watching baseball. However, there is a dark side to our beloved national past time. The prices of tickets and food are so exorbitant regular working people can not enjoy a day at a MLB game without a second mortgage.
Another seldom discussed bit is the signings of young foreign amateurs who get hurt and discarded
without vocations and end up marrying locals without educational or vocational skills. MLB really does need to start some sort of illiteracy program in the minors. Few of these ball players reach the majors and MLB really does need to address this problem.
The tale of US ball players without educational skills is well known. I would love to read the story of baseballs foreign failures. At least the American failures often went to college or graduated high school. The foreign failures seldom speak English and may be illiterate or very poorly educated in their own language.
