What are your thoughts on recent economic conditions (and socio-economic) and the barrier to entry costs for each sport?

The youth sports for your top six, in an anecdotal way, seem to show more equipment equals less interest. My boys play lacrosse and while I love the sport, the necessity of a referee, a large field, and expensive equipment are very demanding. Though it doesn’t help the baseball argument (insert Sandlot movie reference here)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
