NH: Adelaide Crows buy Adelaide Bite baseball team
A couple of things interest me about this. The continuing trend of AFL clubs buying into other sports. But none have committed to the NBL yet. Weren't the crows rumoured to be coming to some arrangement with the Sixers?
Also, the Aussie baseball comp managing to have their competition include clubs from Asia. This has increased the exposure and made it attractive for investors like the crows. Again, something the NBL hasn't really been able to achieve.
So, is baseball beating basketball to the punch and if so, how are they managing to achieve these things before us?
