Baseball is part of the Philadelphia Baseball T Shirt cultural history, pure and simple. But it’s not just the US: People in Central and South America like baseball – not to mention the Japanese. Cuba is huge into baseball. The fact that the best players in the world come to the US to play only points to the fact that we have the strongest economy: We can support the professional player’s lifestyle like no other country can. Of course, there’s utterly no value in trying to compare baseball to other sports like cricket, or to examine it’s ‘excitement quotient’ against soccer or hockey. Each sport requires a certain physical ability; however, I personally think that the hardest thing to do across all sports is to hit a 90 MPH sphere with a 3″ thick wooden pole… < my apologies to the Splendid Splinter My perspective of baseball is a bit different that the other answers below. I like baseball over the other sports for several reasons. First, it’s not constrained by a clock; I like the fact that the game plays out at its own pace. Each game has it’s own feel. I know that for some, this is a real puzzler, but I can tell you that there is a very real sense of freedom in not watching a timer… Second, I like the fact that baseball isn’t totally confined to some specific physical dimensions. Yes, the diamond has to be exactly the right size, and the batters boxes are laid out just so. But every ballpark in America has it’s own distinct outfield, with low and high walls, odd angles and uneven ground. This gives teams like the Red Sox an interesting home field advantage, and turns home runs to right field at AT&T Park into a water sport.

But if you have never spent any great amount of time reading about the game in the morning newspaper; never fought with your friends about the best players; never collected baseball cards; never learned about the history of the game; never made yourself familiar with the game’s all time records and the game’s all time greatest players; never read a single baseball book and are thus unable to compare a game being played today to games engrained in your head from twenty, thirty, or forty years ago, not to mention even more ancient games involving long since passed, magnificent players, whose names will never completely die, who played fifty, seventy-five or even one hundred years ago who you read about in some books you probably still have somewhere … if you have never done any of these things, then baseball will in every likelihood always be a very boring game for you to follow, a game with very little action and way too much standing around. Most young people will never be able to comprehend why baseball is so special to a lot of us older people. Young people have chosen how they want to spend their free time. And for most of them, whether they are being forced to play the game on a neighborhood baseball field or they are simply watching half-heartedly the greatest players on the planet play their sport in beautiful baseball parks, the game of baseball will never be able to compete with the excitement of killing those monsters with their machine guns.
