first_imgAre you aware that major league baseball will be playing games out of the United States this summer?  The NFL has done this for years, so I guess I am not that surprised that the MLB is doing the same thing.  This year the Mets and Padres travel to Mexico to play a 3-game series, and the Red Sox and Yankees will go to London for a 2-game series.This is good for the other countries, but just think what it must cost to load up a baseball team and take them to London to play a 2-game series!  Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to take those dollars and invest in youth baseball and softball in their respective cities?  I sure think it would.last_img
