081-111006 In the Softball Corner - Where Have Our Players Gone?

Slowpitch softball has lost nearly half a million players in the last three years. 

Why?

There are a myriad of reasons, and this show examines five of the big ones. 

There is a sixth big reason that I neglected to mention in the show - video games.  Why exert yourself in real life when you can play all the games you want with just your thumbs?  You don't have to buy bats or gloves or special shoes, you don't even have to leave your room to play.  (Thanks to the guys at softballfans.com for the heads-up on this one.)

Can this exodus be turned around?  Probably not.
