insure your right to see a baseball game. You actually have to pay for your own ticket. What a hardship!
You don't know much about the US these days. Did you know that baseball went on strike for a year, and no one noticed? Yawn. If you think that baseball was "One of the great things about the US", you simply don't know much about the US.
I used to see my beloved Orioles in their heyday at an affordable price. Now I am informed you need to either be the CEO of a Fortune 500 Company (exaggeration for effect, but not much) or a friend of his to acquire his left overs. Even in the early 90's I got to see the World Series for less than $100 a seat. Now seats for spring training may be more than that. I wanted ball players to get more money, but I didn't want to see the game become inaccessible to its most ardent fans. Sure baseball on a Plasma screen is nice, but a ball park is better.
All I can say is ain't it a shame,
