Although it might not reflect the viewing habits of the posters on this board, I infer that softball is almost universally more popular than lacrosse.

For many years, ESPN2 would air the national championship game in Division I men's lacrosse at 11:00 AM, requiring the inconvenient early start in order to make way for an early round women's softball game at 1:00 PM. Invariably, the lacrosse game would run until 1:15 or so, causing ESPN2 to switch to softball the moment the final horn sounded in lacrosse, with no scenes of jubilant players or interviews with coaches.

Clearly, lacrosse has a long way to go to catch up to softball.

I agree. Lacrosse has to reach a point where normal people want to play, and it’s no longer limited to having only affluent participants...

Lacrosse is as down home and nasty as hockey or football... white Collar game, If that’s what you think . You better take another look at the game, I suggest cleaning your glasses.
When has college Softball ever drawn 25,000 to 30,000 people in the stands. Baseball is boring , as boring can be. Take a kid to a game, see which one he or she would go back too. It would be Lacrosse,

That's because kids love watching other kids poke each other with sticks.

While lacrosse may be a prep school sport in some regions, here in Upstate New York it's still fairly middle class with power house programs like West Genesee in Syracuse and Victor in Rochester. Yale's Ben Reeves came out of Class D Pal-Mac which is located between Rochester and Syracuse.
Albany is fortunate to get some of those native Indian players who are talented at both box and field lacrosse. Tough kids who can really shoot the ball.

Young football players are starting to play lacrosse all over the country. Bigger, faster, tougher. A generation from now, lacrosse will be a national sport played by the same young men who now play high school football.

The athleticism and skills of today’s great lacrosse teams (such as Yale) will continue to grow in the years ahead.

According to the lacrosse participation survey, in 2016 more US highschools supported bowling (2708) than they did lacrosse (2572)

Correct. And in 2016, there were 825,000 lacrosse players in the U.S., up from 275,000 high school players in 2011. Don’t know the current numbers. The sport is growing very rapidly.
