Maury Brown of Forbes reports that Major League Baseball’s 2013 revenues will exceed $8 billion. Which will be an all-time record. And that next year, thanks to new TV revenues coming online, the figure could approach $9 billion. By way of comparison, revenues were at $1.4 billion in 1995, the year after the baseball strike.
Not bad for a sport that everyone likes to talk about as dying and antiquated and not tuned in to the modern mindset and all of that jazz.
