While this podcast was published on May 31, 2019, the conversation about baseball still exists. In fact, MLB is considering a change to its playoff format. While we are unsure of the format, we do think baseball thinking differently about their product is necessary. But I do think the championship or bust mentality that exists in sports is getting in the way of a good thing.
Sure, October is a big month for baseball, but baseball spring training starts in February. There is much more to the sport than just the one-month playoffs. More should be done to allow fans and potential fans to consume the content. The content is what brings people in. Then they perhaps will want more. By more I mean they will want to buy tickets, gear, other access, and more. Right now it is hard to consume content. The MLB Extra Innings package blocks out nearby markets. Want more potential fans, give them access to the games, the players (think branding and social media), and the behind the scenes.
