Of all the things they could address with college baseball this is low on my list. Certainly there are some benefits by starting the season in warmer temps. But I don't like the idea of playing to end of July.


What’s at the top of the list? More scholarships? More paid assistant coaches?
You’re not getting those things unless baseball starts generating some revenue. This is the best way to make that happen

Love it. Asked for this a few years ago and was told by posters that it couldnt happen. Sure seems doable though. Best way to make sure tv money is increased is to play when other sports arent. This accomplishes that. I would miss selection monday being on memorial day though. Got to grow the sport, get northern teams more competitive.


Oh, and its baseball, its supposed to be played in warm weather. Screw the ice box in 30 degree weather.

This is bad for smaller schools. If school is out, the team is responsible for housing and feeding players three meals a day. 12 years ago, I was getting $30 a meal when the team didnt have a meal catered at the stadium. Two and a half months of that is going to be tough for some smaller schools that keep winning.

Schools that cant afford it probably should drop down a level in baseball

There's already sports year round. What are you talking about?

MLB: April-October
NBA: November-June
NFL: September-February

You're dumb.

Ever been to Omaha in July? It's fricking sweltering. It's already bad enough in June.

But people that aren't into watching MLB are suddenly going to get into watching college baseball if it is played into July

There so much going on in the summer as is. Maybe it will work out, but I just don't see it.

Well for one, the season would start in march, so it wont be interfering as much with college basketball season, so more of a natural transition. Second, starting later means schools in the north can be more competitive and fans of schools like ohio st, michigan, minnesota, penn st, uconn, etc may have more interest. More interest leads to more viewers, which leads to more ad dollars

this also goes hand in hand with eliminating some of the lowest level minor leagues

I was always under the impression that this was the reason baseball wasn't played in the summer.

Also, I assume the players would be required to enroll in summer school?

Exactly. This is another step toward getting rid of short season leagues. I don’t like it. I smell collusion with MLB and NCAA.

if you’re in the short season leagues and you’re past college age, you’re not a prospect to begin with

re: Premier Power Five Coaches Unveil ‘New College Baseball Model’
Everyone that is thinking about the southeastern conference and that it will be hot during the summer, or that the opening weekend will be during the first weekend of the NCAA basketball tournament is missing the forest for the trees.

This will grow the game in the north, thus making it a national sport.

True, it’s too hot to site through a 4 hour game at the box during June. However infrastructure can be utilized to remedy this. Cover all the stands and provide fans to cool patrons.

This feels like a revolutionary idea that will have a profound impact upon the game and its impact across the nation.
