Millennials, ruiners of all things, are back on their (perceived) bullshit.
Attracting younger fans should be something of a priority for baseball teams. The sport has the oldest demographic base of the four major U.S. sports and needs all the help it can get to offset its long required time commitment, long regular season, long breaks in between pitches, and general long-ness. The last thing it probably should be doing is annoying those under the age of 35.
But, of course, some of us just can’t help ourselves when it comes to millennials. The Montgomery Biscuits, the Double-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, decided to hold a Millennial Night promotion during an upcoming game. All of the classic hits were included. Participation ribbons. A place to take a nap. Selfie stations. A large supply of avocados. Everything short of a college loan debt forgiveness raffle was on the ticket.
