When the All-star game got shown, the first thing noticed, was a half occupied viewer gallery.
Is this a sign of a decline in that sport? If checked the viewership of 1980, the number has drastically come down. If statistics are checked almost 55 percent fall has happened.
If the view ship for this game is declining, the opposite is happening for the clubs. Their viewer lists are growing. Most people got attracted towards club baseball. The current champions have got a high rating in the record.
Baseball is the highest rated programming in all summer; still, it is not able to attract the prime time audience.
The game is still known as America’s pastime, but with no meaning. Some people call it as America’s past. However, the baseball game plays an important role in building relation with the sport and fans. The game was famous in 1970’s, but the viewership has come down. In 1930, it was more famous. People became fans, and the interest was there till 1970. Baseball attracts more people towards it. This game has got more fans than any other game as it has got regular season games than football and basketball.
In this era of entertainment options, the place of baseball is among the Trinity has been undermined. Most of the baseball game viewers are not young people. The younger people are more into National League. There are many baseball clubs that takes part in the National League. Baseball along with softball has even selected for the Olympics games in 2020. After years the game had made a comeback.
The All-star game, does that mean anything? It is not known as a championship game. People do accept that there is a decline in the viewership. But it does not mean the end of the game.
