*snippety snippety wages debate*
When you get into government, you can put a tax on baseball game tickets, little by little, excusing it as a "stadium maintenance" tax, and slowly either phase out the popularity of the sport, or force ticket prices down, reducing players' salaries, and redirecting funds to better pay for professionals in the medical, technology, civil, and educational fields.
Until then, all you can do to redirect capital is to promote the importance of the services you are citing, downplay the importance of hedonistic activities such as professional sports, and follow the same ethic in your own spending habits.
I don't really pay too much attention to professional sports, so I have no say on the actual topic. I know a lot of kids who really like it, and I suppose it's better people are expressing their violent/competitive tendencies through sporting events than through the military, so I don't have a lot against it.
