Reasons for voting decision: Pro made an assertion. That which is asserted without argument or evidence can be dismissed the same way. Thus, Pro failed the presumptive BoP, and arguments to Con. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.

Reasons for voting decision: A very simple debate with only one round and simple assertions; no evidence, reasoning, impacts, refutations, etc. was presented, only Pro who says "Yes they should." and Con who says "No they shouldn't". I can't vote either way; I honestly have no preference on baseball. But judging on this debate, there was equal conduct, equal spelling and grammar, no convincing arguments, and no sources, so points are even. Tons and tons of room for improvement on both sides, so straty1125 and 20dmancheskl, work on your debate skills. Maybe go on my profile to see what a real debate looks like. Good luck in all future debates!
