Over 9,000 fans showed up for the last exhibition game never to be played in Cooperstown, New York between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres. Amid protests there won't be a Hall of Fame Game next year for Major League Baseball. Which begs the question if they're done playing in front of crowds numbering around 9,000 or so, does this mean no more Major League Baseball will be played in South Florida next year too? The shame of this is overall greed and this garbage excuse of having "scheduling conflicts."
Yet somehow MLB is able to schedule games (exhibition or otherwise) in Japan, China, Puerto Rico, Mexico City, heck even Cuba and yet they can't find a way to fit in Cooperstown, New York!?!?! Once again another sign of big business giving the snub to small town America. Granted the players looked none too thrilled to be there as much as the give or take 9,000 who showed up just to be in their presence, but I guarantee you if one had to take a poll and ask players where they'd rather be, Cooperstown, New York for a day or Beijing, China for two weeks, the choice would be unanimous.
I mean seriously anything for a buck right you guys? By the way that move out of Montreal to Washington made that team really competitive right? What a joke.
