1 Minute Drill: Why did the MLB season start so early?

1 Minute Drill: Why did the MLB season start so early?


FOR STORMTEAM 5, I AM KELLY ANN
CICALESE.>>THIS IS FIVE MINUTES — ONE
MINUTE DRILL. MIKE: WE SEE A SMALL RETURNS TO
FENWAY ON THURSDAY, AND WE LOOK
AT THE WINDOW AND WE SEE SNOW. WHY CAN’T ALL OF THE GAMES IN
THE EARLY PART OF THE SEASON BE
PLAYED IN DOMES OR WARM WEATHER
CITIES? MR., EVERY TEAM — THIS YEAR,
EVERY TEAM OPENED UP ON MARCH
29. UNDER THE AGREEMENT, TEAMS HAVE
TO HAVE A NEXT FOUR DAYS OFF
THIS YEAR. THEY DO NOT WANT THEM WORLD
SERIES TO THE PLATE IN THE FIRST
WEEK OF NOVEMBER WHERE YOU RUN
THE RISK OF FROSTY FIELDS AND
FROSTY FANS. WHY AREN’T THE FIRST TWO WEEKS
PLAYED INDOORS AND WARM WEATHER
CLIMATES? BEING ON THE ROAD WOULD BE A
DISADVANTAGE. CONVERSELY, WHEN SEPTEMBER ROLLS
AROUND, ALL OF THE NORTHERN
TEAMS WOULD HAVE THE BENEFIT OF
PLAYING THOSE GAMES AT HOME. IF YOU’RE IN A PENNANT RACE, IT
IS A GREAT ADVANTAGE FOR YOU BUT
A CHALLENGE FOR MORE WEATHER
TEAMS TO PLAY ALL THE GAMES AWAY
FROM HOME STADIUMS AND CROWDS IN
THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. THERE IS REALLY NO SOLUTION. MOTHER NATURE IS THE FAVORITE TO
BE THE WINNER IN THE FIRST WEEK
OR 10 DAYS OF EVERY SINGLE
SEASON. ED YOU’RE FORGETTING AN OBVIOUS
SOLUTION. MIKE: DOUBLE-HEADER? ED THAT IS ANOTHER ONE, BUT IT
WILL NOT HAVE AN — NOT HAPPEN. REDUCE THE SEASON. MIKE: THEN YOU HAVE ASTERISKS ON
EVERY SINGLE RECORD. MARI YOU DON’T WANT TO WORLD
SERIES IN NOVEMBER. MIKE: IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE. RECENTLY. IT IS LIKE SCHOOL, THEY HAVE TO
GET 186 DAYS. MARIA: NO STONE DAYS.
