Tough comparison. If you average 300 hitting a baseball over the course of a baseball career you're in the hall of Fame.
If you run 300 in straight pool or run a 100 every day for 10 years but never win a title you're not getting in the Bca hall of Fame.
Tough to measure metrics in pool which is what defines baseball.
What is equal in pool to hitting a home run? Making the hardest shot on the table? Running a 5 pack? Running a 100 in straight pool?
Pool needs more statistics.
I understand what you mean but Pool needs a lot more than statistics.
In order for Pool to be over the top, 1 & 2 things have to happen.
1-lots of money in Pool from sponsors
2. lots of children exposed to Pool to build a fan base
We've had decades that have gone by with virtually no exposure to children (like there was at one time) in the US
before Pool moved into establishments with Alcohol almost exclusively. While Pool Leagues have helped some
it doesn't compare to the livelong love we lost or what we could have now. We need more community pool rooms
on 7ft tables to regain the interest of the public. Pool needs exposure on many levels.
1 and 2 above build the fanbase. The fanbase is what keeps the sponsorship going. 1 can't solve what 2 don't have.
