Baseball already has had several articles in the past regarding concerns with its aging demographic despite the financial side of things looking fine at the moment.
Ultimately, I doubt MLB cares much considering the boucoup bucks they are making from TV contracts. I'm sure they would like the median age of fans to drop down a fair bit, and get more young people watching, but lets be honest with ourselves. Baseball is a slow, plodding game, one that isn't bound by time limits. It can take an hour and a half to finish a game, maybe four hours. Most kids my age (Compared to everyone else in MLB-GAF, I'm fairly young, going into my 20's) don't have time to sit and watch a baseball game from start to end, even just paying attention when somebody gets a run across. They want it fairly quick, they want it now. And baseball doesn't really provide that.
