Baseball corners the market on another nerd-based industry

Wired has a good piece on MLB.com and how it's helping to revolutionize the online world and maybe level the playing field as part of the CBA.

The article can be found here.

I guess I didn't realize that the MLB.com servers handled all the traffic for the NCAA tournament in March - pretty impressive. Now managing the MLS and World Track Championships? Not so much.

Those sites have to pull what - three four guests and hour? Kind of like bragging about handling site traffic for this blog.

  • Interesting stuff. We've seen with satellite radio that baseball is actually a bigger driver for subscriptions than the NFL is and I can see the same thing happening with the Internet. Part of this is baseball is a more of a daily and recurring indulgence, while the NFL is cast as a "special event" sport that can only be done justice if you're watching it live on TV.
