www.sportseventsmagazine.com 2019 Baseball/Softball Sourcebook 7 Summer youth baseball winds down just as Major League Baseball swings through its post season toward the World Series. The number of participants in youth baseball is holding its own if not bouncing back after experiencing a slide from 2009 to 2014, when the sport experienced a 4.3 percent drop in players ages 6 to 17, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA). But what appears to be an upswing is taking place with renewed interest and initiatives designed to get kids interested in baseball and keep them playing. ► A busy summer brought an average of 1,440 visitors each weekend to Fayetteville, N.C., for baseball tournaments.
