Ed2 if you're about - where do baseball teams get most of their revenue from, i was told a lot of it is from match day tickets and stadium food/ bev sales, is that true?

{Ed002's Note - Largely yes. There is inclome from the league's pot of money, television (particularly local) but matchday will be the largest part of the income.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I maybe wrong but not many youth players actually make the grade to play professional but what support do the ones that don't make it get? Is this different club to club?

{Ed001's Note - very different, most do nothing. Those with academies have to ensure they got an education at least while with them. Some have staff to help them move on, but very little more than liaison to help them get a job or next step on the ladder of higher education. Or they may help them with training. At the highest level it is usually just about finding them another club.}

Totally irrelevant to your question but I went to see Chicago Cubs at Wrigley field this year and what a day out. Awesome spectacle even though I didn't have a clue what was going on! Highly recommend for anyone who gets the opportunity to go to one.

I know this is off topic ed but its international week so just thought I'd ask. Is there much money in american sports outside of the 'major' leagues? I understand high school and university sports are quite popular but what happens after that. Is it largely amateur? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, college sports brings in very significant money - considerably more than the lower levels of football in England. They have high end multi-use stadia and get commercial support from name brands - not the local plumbing business in Darlington.}

Ed02, the NCAA is a multi-billion dollar industry to the point that people were campaigning for the student athletes to be paid cos they put their bodies on the line to play sports for the schools (esp. the bigger Universities like Alabama, Ohio State, Florida etc) and making hundreds of millions of dollars for the school, and get nothing for it. That just goes to show you how big it is in the States.

{Ed002's Note - Right, there is a lot of money in college sports. Before moving to Blighted I went to a college that was not well known for sports so there was no big deal (although it was a long time ago). Go Bears!}
