Baseball requires right marketing plan for survival

Here’s a spin on an old rhetorical question for you.

If a life-threatening disease falls in the forest, does it make a sound?

The answer is yes, but it barely registers. This rhetorical came to pass this past week, as approximately 17 members of the Miami Marlins roster and staff received positive tests for COVID-19.

Let me preface by saying that, obviously, my thoughts are for the well-being of the Marlins staff. This killer of a disease has done enough damage across the globe, and nobody wants to see it infect anyone.

That being said, the national reaction to this story brings into light baseball’s fall from that “America’s pastime” grace of the 1900s. Had this happened to any NBA or NFL club, it would’ve been national news, not just on the sports channels.
