Manny Machado Understands Why Fans Don’t Come To Games: Baseball Is ‘A Little Boring’
When it comes to enduring a Major League Baseball game, Manny Machado very much prefers his position on the field as opposed to being in the stands.
Earlier this week, Machado was on hand in Miami for the All-Star Game as a spectator for the first time in three years. While he had fun cheering on teammate Jonathan Schoop and several other friends around the league, he found the game to be a touch mundane.
“Yeah, it’s a little boring to watch it,” Machado said, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN. “I don’t know how people go out there and watch games. Now I know why sometimes people don’t come to games.”
Machado is just the latest MLB player to take a shot at the sport he plays, as Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper echoed those same sentiments last year when he said he believes baseball is a “tired sport” because players can’t express themselves.
