Baseball Fans are everywhere, and not all of us are within driving distance of our favorite teams. Most fans would have to drive more than an hour to get to the ballpark. Teams in smaller markets are even worse. It would be a smart move for the MLB to remove the blackout rule so that all fans can enjoy baseball, not just those who can afford to go to the game or those that are close enough. It doesn't make sense to stop fans from watching a team play because not enough went to the game. Baseball has 162 games in a season. It is extremely difficult to meet the requirements for every single game. Listen to the voice of the fans, put an end to the blackout rule and give access to all of the fans, not just a few.
