Rishe on MLB Attendance at CNBC

Is baseball striking out? CNBC asked that question of sports economics expert Patrick Rishe, associate professor in the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology. He and Stephen Cannella of Sports Illustrated discussed what’s driving down attendance at Major League Baseball games this year.
