How can Major League Baseball create a fan-friendly 2020 season?

2 weeks agoStaff Report

With a shortened season in 2020, Bruce Levine, Taylor McGregor and Paul Dzien, Crawly’s Clubhouse publisher, discuss with host Cole Wright on Cubs 360 Daily how Major League Baseball can create a fan-friendly environment. 

McGregor would love to see a season full of experience and as well as more access of players to the fans.

“I think unlimited access, mic’ing up players and really seeing them as individuals. Fans love these guys as people and it creates momentum around the game,” McGregor said. “I think there’s a lot of things that we can do to keep this season exciting. I’m looking forward to seeing how all of this plays out.”

Levine would enjoy seeing fans in the stands and enjoying their time at the ballpark; however, he has a plan that would please fans.

“My plan is that all the foul balls that go into the stands are autographed after the game by the players and a lot of them are taken over to places like Lurie Children’s Hospital. They’re given out as a token of their appreciation for fans and people out there,” Levine said. “Asking them to do that would be something that’s beyond what they can do out on the field normally, that’s just not what I’m looking for. I’m just looking for something extra from them.”
