Baseball Surges to #1 Youth Sport!
Finally, Baseball is getting some good news about participation in the sport. Stunning news, really.
Baseball - Softball has now surged to be the # 1 youth participation sport in the United States. This after a 3 year trend of growth, according to the annual report by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association. Participation in Baseball has shown an annual rise of 6.5% over 5 years, 10.7% over 3 years, 18.1 % from 2015 - 2016. The growth rate seems to be gaining momentum. The increase in participation almost certainly stems from MLB's "Play Ball" initiatve which was launced by the sport in 2015. This story was reported be Fox Sports and other news outlets.
