Likewise, in baseball, advertising on the outfield walls dates back to the early 20th century, and the elimination of those ads was an abborration in the 70s and 80s afterall. Baseball has never had advertising on their jerseys, and I would hope that would remain. I don't count the Majestic logo on the sleeve or the Russell Athletic logo on the batting gloves or the Rawlings logo.

Great question though. I would prefer the radio broadcasts were scaled back in terms of advertising because I find the radio guys are so intent on trying to fit all of the commercial reads in that they lose some of the genuineness of the call.
This basically mirrors my position, as well
