More than 52% of avid MLB fans and more than 40% of casual fans said they are more likely to consider trying a product or service if that product or service is an official sponsor of MLB, according to data from Turnkey Sports & Entertainment, through its Turnkey Intelligence operation. Both of those respective marks are up from last year's figures. Below are responses from MLB fans in regard to official league products/services. Turnkey conducted national consumer research surveys among a sample of 411 members of the Greenfield Online Omnibus panel who were at least 18 years old. This year’s survey was conducted October 5-28, a period that ended on the day of tgame One of the World Series. Last year’s survey was conducted October 10-29, a period that ran through the last game of the World Series (Turnkey Sports & Entertainment). Also see this week's SportsBusiness Journal for responses by individual category/sponsor.Are you more or less likely to consider trying a product/service if
