Outta here

 In “Going for the fences” (Oct. 2, 2014) I noted that the moguls who rule the game were in a sweat. Both home runs-per-game and runs-per-game were 20 percent lower than the record-setting pace of the early 2000s. Attendance and TV ratings are down in consequence. The end was nigh.

What is wrong with our game? lamented pundits. Not much, apparently. Over the 2014 MLB season, the average Home Runs Per Game among MLB teams was 0.86. The average Home Runs Per Game in the in the MLB 2015 season was 1.01 -- a 17.4 percent increase.
