Cajun PBP guy doesnt like Easter Sunday Baseball

I know a few leagues are moving to Thursday/Saturday series Easter weekend, but no major league has taken the step yet.

He's got a point. Crowd's are generally awful on Easter, and if you've got a curfew attached to the game, an 11am start becomes possible. However, I disagree with him on one key point.

Baseball was made for Easter: Bear with me. Easter Sunday has long been seen as the sort of unofficial start of the Spring. Its a sign that weather is getting warmer, and the Holiday itself is a great day for families to get outside and enjoy themselves. What sport doesn't represent this Holiday better than baseball?

Now I fully admit, I wish the SBC would rotate Easter home series. I haven't celebrated Easter with my family since I was in College because ASU has always had a home baseball weekend. Meanwhile, Jay's frustrated in his own way because the conference never forces the Cajuns or other high attended teams to host on Easter, meaning he's always away from home.

I think there is a place for Easter Baseball in the SBC...I just think we need to rotate it where the same teams aren't forced to travel and host every year. Teams at home lose attendance, but get to celebrate with their families. Teams on the road don't have attendance issues, but don't get to celebrate with their families.

Thoughts?
