Like the NBA before it, Major League Baseball’s ratings continue to nosedive thanks to their decision to politicize the game and suck up to the “woke” Marxist left.
According to Sports Media Watch:
A 7-inning Cardinals-Braves Sunday Night Baseball game averaged just 931,000 viewers on ESPN over the weekend, down 49% from the comparable window in 2019 (Cubs-Dodgers: 1.84M) and the least-watched Sunday night game this season. The game aired opposite an NBA Game 7 (Hawks-Sixers: 6.16M) and partially overlapped with the final round of golf's U.S. Open.
Mind you, baseball is supposed to be “America’s Pasttime.”
And it used to be. But that was before the ‘woke’ BLM craze.
“To put in perspective just how bad this is, consider that even the no good NBA has seen a ratings increase from last year's pandemic-plagued season. Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals saw a 66% increase from the comparable night in 2020. The numbers are still far below what they were in 2019 and the NBA should still be shipped off to China, but even the anthem-kneeling, social-justice loving NBA has had a better ratings season than they had last year,” Breitbart News added.
Americans are losing their culture and they are responding by shedding those cultural icons who turned on them.

In other action, TBS averaged 359,000 for its season debut of A's-Yankees last Sunday afternoon — unsurprisingly down 46% from its first game last season, which aired on the opening weekend of the months-delayed season (7/26/20 Yankees-Nationals: 659K). Compared to the network's 2019 opener, viewership fell a more modest 9% (7/7/19 Yankees-Rays: 395K).
Going back to last week, ESPN averaged 445,000 for Red Sox-Braves last Wednesday — down 30% from 2019 (Brewers-Astros: 632K). The previous night's Cubs-Mets game was healthier at 624,000, up 1% from Mets-Yankees in '19 (617K). The same matchup drew 733,000 on June 14, the top weeknight MLB game since May 5.
“These numbers are abysmal and most certainly can be attributed to the league's embrace of Black Lives Matter and their decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Georgia in retaliation for the state's attempt to make it more difficult for Democrats to steal elections,” Breitbart reported.
“MLB made their choice, now the people are making theirs.”
