IMO baseball is dying for three reasons

1) Kids born in the last 30 (or so) years have grown up with the same babysitter- video games. Their addiction to electronic devices has caused them to need constant stimulation. Baseball does not fill that need.

2) Spending years riding a bus and staying in cheap hotels in the minors doesn't begin to compare to the instant star treatment college football and basketball players receive.

3) IMO baseball is a harder game to master and a kid can't just rely on his superior speed, size, and strength. Baseball skills have to be developed and even a great athlete can look foolish on a baseball diamond.
