Sorry, but as a younger person (28) I do not buy this at all.
I enjoyed baseball when I was younger and at games (before smartphones even came out) but it is boring as hell to watch on TV.
Not to mention, baseball kind of shot themselves in the foot. I mean, I LOVED the Sammy Sosa-Mark McGuire homeroom chase, but all the steriod stuff of late has turned me off.
But sure, its easy to say its because young people are too busy playing around on the internet...
