My bet, they feel spring game is enough of a draw on it's own
.....They probably had some dumb ass analytic tell them they can generate more revenue separating the event from baseball to make it more "profitable".
If I am wrong, I would like for someone to prove it otherwise. It is something that CAN be done but has not for a really long time. The spring game is not enough for me to want to drive out. Sorry, too boring to me. Add baseball to the mix, I would.
