    Are you actually trying to televise a baseball game or just present a bunch of back-slapping interviews? If you indeed are trying to entice fans to watch the Blue Jays, it would be nice to actually televise the whole game instead of just showing the times when the Jays are up to bat. By the way, it would be nice to have announcers who actually know something about the game and the players. You are not going to win many viewers if this is the quality of your sports presentations.

  • My best team of MLB is The Cincinnati Reds . This why I always fallow their games especially whenever I have some time. I’m always trying not o miss any of their game and hear about the team’s news. But The Cincinnati Reds tickets get more pricy especially when there are some hot games. But, if we’re really good fans we should try not to be mean when we’re talking about a favourite teams. It’s not only the Reds tickets that got pricy, but there are other major teams too, so the team needs our support and we should provide as much as we can.
