...and does anyone care anymore?
Baseball is the greatest sport ever played. Period. /Thread. Yo mama.
Well...my team has won the WS three out of the last 5 years....so there's that
Aye, it be still around. I prefer college games meself.
We root for the Indians. Yes, baseball is still around. Game starts in about 20 minutes . Home opener
Sounds like you need some Cracker Jack.
I love baseball but it doesn't get the respect that basketball and football get because people say its boring. It is a highly skilled sport though. Your best football and basketball players in college will go directly to the top tier(NBA,NFL) while the best in baseball will take at least 2 to 3 years before making it to the MLB.
I love it, grew up playing it, but I'll admit that the regular season doesn't hold my attention if my teams (Rangers and Rockies) aren't in contention. They're both miles from contention (yes, I know the Rockies are 3-0...it's April). Wake me up when the playoffs get here.
700 kids in my local little league and we're a small town community. I'm certainly biased, but I believe this is the most competitive era of the sport. The level of individual coaching and advancement at the youth level is mind boggling. Yes there is a downside to over playing, but to the op I'd say watch what these kids do in the sport in the future.
After waiting since the year I was born.
A baseball game is my favorite sporting event; no whistles, no time limits, everyone zenning out on a little white dot. If it had cheerleaders it would be perfect.
Yeah....we have about the same where I live, perhaps a bit more. After we went to the LL WS 3 years ago, (Petaluma, CA/ lost the US Championship), the league blossomed. It's my son's last year.....and 6 games into the season, it's been so much fun reflecting on how much better he is playing & enjoying the game.
These days, I'd rather watch/play rugby than baseball (well, not play so much anymore). YMMV.
Simple search would have shown you.There's a thread about that too.
What a coincidence...MY team has won the World Series 3 of the last 5 years...
Too bad everyone can't be a Giants fan!
some sports writer said baseball creates more fodder for topics of conversation than
football, basketball, and hockey combined-thats why it will always be the greatest sport.
theres just more going on in a game, therefore its more interesting.
I played football, basketball, baseball, and ran track in high school. The only one I enjoy watching is baseball. I don't even have to care about either team to enjoy watching it. The skill level of major league players whether batting, fielding, or pitching is amazing.
Heading down to see the Yankees pound the Red Sux tomorrow, haven't been to the new Yankee stadium. What to expect besides high beer prices? Anything special to eat like at Camden Yards?
More than one thread about baseball is fine...it's a tiny offset for the typical apathy toward the sport on TGP. Last year we had a team in the WS who hadn't been there in 30 years, and I was the only one who started a thread about it. And I'm not even a Royals fan.
