Readers: TV should let baseball be


Television needs to tune out of baseball's postseason scheduling process, said 71 percent of the respondents to "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's call-in telephone survey. Some 194 of the 273 callers to SUNDIAL said TV does not have the right to dictate game times in light of CBS's afternoon and non-weekend playoff schedule this year.

Sixty percent of the callers (164) thought non-weekend games should be played at night and those respondents criticizing the CBS announcing team of Dick Stockton and Jim Kaat also enjoyed a 60 to 40 percent majority.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
