Baseball is unlike any other spectator sport. Some people decry the games as boring, and they certainly don't have the action of football or basketball. But that is like comparing Gary Kasparov playing chess to WWF wrestling. Baseball is Americas pastime because the other sports can't compete with the sights, the sounds, and smells at the ballpark. Watching the game is fun, but so is talking to friends, eating a dog, and enjoying the sun.
