Just a question to ponder; If there was a box on the OOTP setup screen that said stadium advertising five million dollars, how many players would leave it unchecked on principle. Baseball thrives, first on talent, second on revenue.

By the way, I would bet a good amount of money that we will be seeing ads, real ads, in OOTPB someday soon.

The necessary code is already in place. All that's needed is for someone to be willing to advertise.

When did you start coding OOTP?

The real question is, when I subscribe to see Pepsi, Allstate, and W.B. Mason on the outfield walls, what do the Raccoons get in exchange? We could use some pitching. And hitting. Oh, and a GM. Foremost a GM.

I don't mind ads. I barely even see them to be honest.
As someone said earlier, this is probably because I'm european and adds have been part of soccer forever.
as long as they don't interupt the actual game, I couldn't care less about them.

Okay I have a question and it kind of goes with the subject of this thread, so rather than start a whole new thread I will ask it here. This year I decided to pay the $19 for the MLB At Bat app, so if I wanted to, I could listen to the Tigers radio broadcast. Been awhile since I listened to games on the radio, as I live in Shreveport and we don't have access to a major league teams broadcasts.

So, I'm listening to the Tigers and they have all the normal commercials between innings. But, during the broadcast Price and Dickerson keep doing ads as well. I know yesterday I heard one for Xfinity. I had another teams game on earlier this year and heard the same deal during that broadcast. Is this something new? Just seemed strange hearing ad's being read by the broadcasters.

Well, I found an old Ernie Harwell broadcast on YouTube from game 5 of the AL playoff series. Bottom of the first, they did station identification and then Ernie read a ad for Art Vann Furniture. So, that answers my question. I'm going out now to cut my lawn.

I hate the ads. Here in Cleveland when the Indians play I always have to switch to something else for an inning or two when the ads for local hospitals and "cancer centers" come up.

We have suffered too much heartache in my family because of that disease that begins with the letter "C". I'm sure as $%#@ not going to look at the word while I'm watching Lindor batting or Kluber pitching. It drives me absolutely crazy.

Ditto for the TV ads during Indians and Cavs games. The Cleveland Clinic has been running a really obnoxious ad campaign for years. Smiling doctors, smiling, bald-headed chemo patients. I always keep the remote handy and switch when the commercials come on. Sometimes I just turn to European soccer and forget about watching my local sports teams.

The ads don't bother me, but the pitch zone is an abomination. Leaving aside its inaccuracy, it represents the strike zone as two dimensional. The strike zone is three dimensional and it's a strike if the ball touches any part of it. An eephus can come down through the top of the zone and be a strike. The back-door slider is so named because it hits the back of the zone and not the front.

Yeah. Except that whole "Red Sox have the highest payroll in baseball thing. So saying it "doesn't go to salaries at "all"" is ridiculous. If you would have taken all of one minute to do the most basic research you would have found out that the Yankees rake in over $600 million in revenues. Red Sox? $453 million. INCLUDING the ad revenues.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/...teams-in-2010/

They simply are doing what they can to stay as competitive as possible with a team whose resources they can't and never will match. What should they do? Not take in revenues any way they can and field a clearly inferior team so they don't offend YOU? Or try to maximize their revenues so they can remain as competitive as possible with their limitations? I don't particularly like it either. But reality is they will never be able to match the NY juggernaut in revenues. It's impossible. Unfortunately it's a necessary evil. And I am not taking issue with you hating the ads. I do however take issue with the fact you singled out Boston, who is actually one of the teams that DO put revenues into their salaries. to claim otherwise is wrong. That's the issue I have. Sounds more like an anti Red Sox thing than an anti-ad thing.

i relate and understand perfectly. besides the Cancer treatment ads, drug companies now run ads to the point i turn off the game and look up the final scores on my phone-app when i get up in the morning. like you, i've had enough of this stuff hit personally i don't need them to remind me.

Baseball (and all pro sports) have always, always, always been big business. It didn't just happen in the last thirty to forty years, it's always been there, perhaps not as in your face, but still there. It's just the way it is. Either find a way to ignore the advertising and enjoy the beauty of the game or turn it off. It's not going away any time soon, and it will probably become even more pervasive (as you suggested in your OP, probably the jerseys are next).

I would think ads on jerseys would have be negotiated with the players union.
