“Tell the fans to drink and drive?” Phyllis Strahm Criticizes Liquor Sales Policy Changes

Philadelphia Phillies veteran left-hander Matt Stram, 32, criticized major league clubs for delaying beer sales.

Local media such as ‘ESPN’ highlighted Strahm’s remarks on the 13th (Korean time) on a podcast called ‘Baseball Isn’t Boring카지노‘.

Strahm stressed the need for a time limit on beer sales at major league stadiums, saying, “The reason we stop selling alcohol in the 7th inning is so that fans can sober up and go home safely.”

As he said, Major League Baseball puts a time limit on beer sales for the safety of fans. It is different for each club, but usually alcohol is sold until the end of the 7th inning attack.

However, with the introduction of the pitch clock this season, the match time was shortened by more than 30 minutes, which had the opposite effect of reducing beer sales time and reducing sales revenue.

According to Joe Pompliano, a sports business reporter, beer sales revenues for each club decreased from as little as 280,000 dollars to as much as 1.1 million dollars.

Then, the Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers, and Arizona Diamondbacks delayed the time limit from 7 to 8. Other clubs are expected to join.

Strahm strongly criticized this phenomenon. “If it is common sense, if the game time and the end time were quicker, the sales limit time would have been pushed forward to give fans time to sober up. Instead we are slowing it down to 8 rounds. We are forcing fans and their families to drink and drive home in 22 minutes.”

In Major League Baseball, most fans visit the stadium by car. The longer the alcohol sales limit, the higher the risk of driving while intoxicated after a game. Strahm expressed concern about this.

He said, “It is not surprising. When billionaires lose revenue, they find ways to make up for it. What I’m trying to say is, given the safety of the fans, this is not a smart idea.”
