LET’S PLAY 2! ED RENDELL MAKES THE CASE FOR PHILS’ DOUBLEHEADERS!

As the former mayor and governor writes in the Daily News:

Let’s bring back six regularly-scheduled doubleheaders – three on Sundays and one each on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day. That’s one doubleheader a month. Let’s shorten the season by starting later in April and ending the World Series in October. The average team would lose about $8-$9 million in revenue under this proposal (about the cost of a back of the rotation pitcher). To cut that loss in half, teams could charge 150 percent of a regular ticket for a doubleheader so a $20 ticket for a single game would cost $30 for a doubleheader. Either way, they can absorb it to make the game better and to keep those ties with the days when baseball was a very special part of American life:
