Good article. However, I don’t think that Major League Baseball organizations would feel confident if they focused their marketing-campaign on social media. Social Media, despite its recent success and influence on society, is still not used by everyone. Generally, sports fans above the age of 35 (a target market of Major League Baseball) steer away from Social Media.

However, I agree with your general proposal for the financial structure of each organization. However, I believe that some powerful organizations would object with the contract restrictions because they love to lock in young stars to an infinite number of years. Also, the ticket prices concept would not gain significant popularity among baseball organizations because it would be hindering their revenue.

Once again, this is a great article. Thank you for sharing your thoughts for improving Major League Baseball. I hope to see more of your proposals in the future.
