Maddon: Technology key to attracting young fans

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon maintains technology and not shorter games is key to attracting young fans to baseball.

Maddon's comments followed Monday night's 1-0 win over the New York Yankees, a game that lasted 3 hours, 28 minutes - the longest nine-inning, 1-0 game by time in major league history.

"I really think that if all we're worried about is length of the game regarding attracting young fans, I think that's probably not the actual specific or most important reason," Maddon said. "It's a media-driven problem, I really believe that. I think to involve youngsters technologically speaking is much more important."
