The Backstreet Boys? Really?

Baseball is determined as ever to shoot itself in the foot.

The Tampa Bay Ray are young. They’re cool. They have a great mix of white guys, Latin guys and black guys. They are the exact kind of team baseball needs to reach across the generation gap and get teenage kids interested in the game again. And if you don’t think this is a problem, take a look at the crowd next time you attend a game.

So take advantage and get somebody young and cool to sing the National Anthem. Rihanna and T.I., for instance.

Instead it’s ladies and gentlemen … The Backstreet Boys!

Enjoy the game.
