6. TERRIBLE USE OF SCOREBOARD I have no problem with modern technology having a role in today’s major league baseball game. I’m not on the side saying that baseball should be tradition-based manually operated scoreboards. Baseball is complex sport.

It looked more like a social hour than an Olympic race. Erki Nool was […]
