Superstar salaries lead to low O’s attendance
I enjoyed the baseball history lesson by Erik M. Jensen (“Breathing old life into baseball,” Sept. 22). It took meback to when we did idolize certain team members such as Brooks Robinson and Eddie Murray but didn’t lose sight that it was a team sport.
Now, it seems to be all about the individual player and being sure he earns his mega-salary. But one glaring point was omitted. What I really miss is the days when we could walk to Memorial Stadium on the spur of the moment and buy a ticket for under $10. The cost is prohibitive now for most working families, and one game a year may cost upward of $300 for the “cheap” seats for a family of four.
