I have tried to watch baseball multiple times, but every time I watch it,I just can't get into it. It's too boring for me. I'm sure I'l like it when I'm older, but for those who like it now; what makes it so entertaining to you?
I like all sports, I like homeruns and running, beating the catch of the baseball ball. It is fun when you can beat it, and the opponent is out.
Hahahaha...not a damned thing!
It's as boring as golf!
Humans are about as athletic as cattle!
I like the intricacies of the game. Finding the right pitcher vs. batter combo in relief, sabermetrics, hold/cold zones for hitters, ejections (can be funny), and oh yeah, it's still America's pastime.
It is more of a meditative thinking game.
You can spend a lifetime learning baseball.
I guess you had to have played it as a kid to really enjoy it. I understand where many people think this, I love baseball and played all my life, I played outfield first but was also kind of bored so I learned at a young age to be a catcher, this way every pitch I was in the game. Really a fun sport.
don't tell that to many foreign countries, as they take their soccer a helluva of alot more seriously. hell, i think i saw one broadcast on espn where it showed a guy throwing flares out on the field...AT THE OPPOSING TEAM'S PLAYERS. Trust me, they sure do take their soccer seriously in most other countries.
when longo or wright make a diving stab at 3rd and throw out a runners. when brandon phillips or weeks makes a turn around throw plus a running over the catcher is always fun. charging the mound is good to unless you charge the ryan express mr ventura lol.
In my opinion, baseball is the greatest sport. That said, it isn't doing well with the ADD generation.
I don't find it that entertaining. I mean, I would watch a game, but I would rather watch a faster paced sport like football or hockey
The pitcher looks in for the sign, he shakes off the catcher once then nods OK, this moves the SS a bit to his right. As the pitcher starts his windup the 3B comes in a step, the SS goes on his toes, the 2B moves slightly up the middle while the 1B gets ready for a shot. All the OF get on their toes ready to go, then the pitch comes in and the hitter is out in front of the offspeed pitch and drills a two hopper btwn the SS and 3B but the SS got a great jump since he saw the sign and makes a great backhand stab in the hole, sets and throws the batter out by a half step while the catcher is by the dugout backing up the play and the rf is backing up the throw. That is one play and there are so many things to look at in baseball if you choose to. America's Game!
There is something about the roar of a crowd over a hit...there is something about throwing a man out before he reaches the plate...that is top-rate suspenseful. (There is also something about Summer and Baseball...the game at the park!)That being said there is also something relaxing about watching a live game...or listening to it on the radio. I can't quite put a finger on it 'Cause I love American Football...but there is something there to baseball. I think if we had more baseball legends running around...in front of us on the field...and less premadonnas getting their names in the newspaper...the game would live up to it's hype...once again!
And optimus grimlock...Soccer has its' spectacular moments, too!
Hum.. thats a tough one. The sport is so slow that when something special happens people go crazy. For example, triple plays, which are rare btw, grand slams or amazing catches when a players jumps over the fence. Other then that the sport is pretty boring if you ask me. I live in a city where Hockey is king (Montreal), we had the Expos for a while, now they are in Washington, so the sport is missing a wild factor or something to add to the excitement of going to watch live sports.
I was pitcher through high school so that's the part that I enjoy most when I watch. There's so many things going on aside from just throwing it to the catcher. I would never watch it if I wasn't a fan of any team though.
"Defensive Positioning in Every Batted Ball Situation" is the title of a book written in the late '60s. The title explains that the fielders are moving to defend based on a given situation. Were the defenders placed properly? Did the pitcher throw the ball to maximize the defensive set up? The pitcher and catcher have another game going. Is the catcher making the right calls for a particular hitter? There are numerous games going on at the same time. College games have a tremendous amount of verbal banter shouted from one dugout or player to the opposing side. It's fun listening to that part of the game if you attend in person. Games within the game is what makes the game interesting for me. It's better when you know the players and can second guess the variety of calls made on each pitch.
I simply don't get it.
I have seen it on TV and I don't get it at all.
hmm if you dont get baseball then your not american!!!
Honestly, if you played a sport while growing up your more likely to enjoy watching it. We can all agree sports are better to play then watch but its fun to argue in the mean time. o ya soccer players are as tough as girlscouts and snails, just sayin
So you think baseball is boring... try sitting on a hard bench for several hours while watching a bunch of noisy, smelly cars drive as fast as they can around an oval and going nowhere ... that is boring. It's even more boring to watch on TV.
I'm a Red Sox fan and try to get to Fenway as often as I can, but I've got a TV on somewhere in the house with a game on every night during the season. For me, it's not so much about baseball, it's about my team beating the other team. That's where the excitment is, in the competition. Also, I think the more you understand about the game, the players, and the stats, the more interesting it becomes. Picture yourself with a bat in your hand trying to hit a ball that is flying towards you at 98 miles per hr.
"Picture yourself with a bat in your hand trying to hit a ball that is flying towards you at 98 miles per hr." I tried it once in a batting cage with one of those throwing machines. Past me before I could even start to swing.

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?
