Baseball nationally is not as popular as it once was. Football is this generation's national pastime. There's nothing to attract the borderline kid to the game.
Yeah, RBI throws together a Cleveland summer team with an inner-city roster that can score a few runs at times. That's about it. They have a great home field in the restored League Park/Luke Easter Field. TARP/Obama money, I think.

None of the Cleveland HS teams ever get a second game, always give up double-digit runs. No pitching - ever.

The game is just not valued in that sub-culture.
