Interleague play is going on in the Majors, as the Seattle Mariners have just taken 2 games from the Dodgers and swept the San Francisco Giants. I have one big complaint--why don't they do this year round instead of at designated times, early in the season.
Interleague play give us the chance that Los Angeles, New York, Bay Area, and Chicago baseball fans have had for decades, the chance to see more baseball teams. Inter conference games go on without any fanfare in the NFL. You know what, the Super Bowl has only become more popular than when NFL teams and AFL teams would not play during the regular season. NBA teams play every other team in the league, and the league is better because of it.
Interleague Baseball is still getting bashed by talk radio, blogs and my peers. Baseball is a game of tradition. I consider myself a traditionalist when it comes to baseball. I also know that there is something real cool about bringing the National League game into SafecoField. It is fun to watch the Mariners play in a National League park and watch the pitcher bat. It is extra special if he can get on base.
So here is to continuing Interleague play and a hope that we someday soon see the Mariners in the biggest interleague game of the year--The World Series!
