In order for a sport to succeed in the United States and arguably the world it needs a transcendent star. The NBA has LeBron, and before him Michael Jordan. Professional Men’s Tennis has the likes of Agassi, Sampras, McEnroe, and Connors.
At the present time, the sport of Racquetball lacks star power and predictably mainstream acceptance and recognition. Those in the know with the knowledge of the sport have been troubled by this fact for years. Racquetball is a great game that should be part of the national conversation when it comes to athletics.
