Nope, just evening meanderings from me. I was thinking about my experience of major-league baseball as a kid, which revolved around reading newspaper accounts and box-scores and listening to radio broadcasts. We did see Reds games on TV a lot, because they were close enough to be part of our local market, but other than that television viewing was mostly Saturday Game of the Week and the playoffs. We didn't get cable (which brought Cubs and Braves games with it) until I was away at college. I played Little League, subscribed to the Sporting News, bought the annual Street & Smith baseball yearbook each spring, and often a paperback handbook as well (the title of which eludes me), and spent far more time than I should have on Strat-O-Mat... but getting to watch a lot of major-league baseball on TV is still a relatively new phenomenon for me, because even as an adult I opted to go without cable for many years. The free MLB.TV subscription I've gotten through T-Mobile the past several seasons has spoiled me rotten!
Btw, seems increasingly likely that there won't be a 2020 MLB season, even in shortened form. I hope the writer's prognosis is wrong, but wouldn't bet against him at this point.
EDIT: this is the annual handbook I was thinking of, titled--what else?--The Complete Handbook Of Baseball.
