Baseball is declining as a sport, and has been for a long time. Outside of a few markets (NYC, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis), baseball is nowhere near the major sport it once was.

And I say this is as someone who likes baseball.

The topic sometimes comes up here whether soccer/MLS is ever going to overtake hockey/NHL in popularity. I think that's the wrong question - soccer may overtake baseball instead. Both sports are outdoor summer sports, so they more directly compete with each other for fans more than either compete with hockey. And more over, TV ratings and youth participation are rising for both hockey and soccer, which they are in a long term decline for baseball.
