While interest in baseball is at an all-time high, oddly enough, the number of young people playing the sport is in decline.
According to a study appearing in The Wall Street Journal, 2.5 million kids between the ages of four and 18 played baseball in 1996. That number was down to 2 million kids (a 25 percent decline) in 2012. That’s part of what prompted Ryan Parker to form an oasis of sorts for baseball in Hyde Park. The urban activist has put together the Circle Change Foundation, which gives kids in inner-city Boston the change to play baseball and develop their skills.
