A goal for MLB this year was to take drastic strides in bringing a new level of excitement to the playoffs. In addition to reformatting their wildcard race, MLB has reorganized the travel schedule for the divisional round. While the changes have been met with mixed reviews, one thing is for certain; this format has brought more attention to the game.
But has baseball been able to use their social networks to elevate the level of excitement the way the NHL and NBA did during their playoff seasons?
While it’s too early in the season to reach a definitive consensus, overall, MLB still has work to do.
