Don't just root for home teams

October 8, 2013 

I was disappointed that on the morning of the American League's winner-take-all wild card game there was little to no coverage of this nationally televised event in the BND. Instead you chose to highlight both Cards and Blues upcoming contests, even though they were still a day away,

rather than focus on big game of the day.

Both Cards and Blues coverage is of high interest but in due time.

A significant portion of your readership is composed of an eclectic and savvy baseball fan base that is associated with Scott Air Force Base. Surely I am not the sole diehard Indians fan in the area and I trust there are many, many Rays and/or American League fans as well.

You owe it to your

readers to be more sensitive to their focus.
