A great point here on changing extra innings from Michael Mulvihill, Executive Vice President, Research for Fox Sports.
One counter to this is that ratings peak in extra innings. Who's the priority, the paying crowd or the much larger TV audience at home? https://t.co/1b2ejxgVf1— Michael Mulvihill (@mulvihill79) February 9, 2017
Michael would know — I was not aware the ratings hold firm or even spike for extra innings. That would make all the difference. My traditionalist side can sing again!
