Know what you mean, I stumped up 8 to watch the World Cup on my ipod on Sky Sports. Worth it though, great tournament thus far.

I've only been to one MLB game, which was between the Mariners and Yankees in Yankee stadium but I've been to numerous minor league games. Have always enjoyed them.

Oh, and the M's won that game by the way.
P.S. Another thing about watching baseball in person, you're sorta involved in the game with all the foul balls flying over the stands. And if your seats are out in the outfield section you can get a souvenir when somebody hits a HR near your section.

Interesting that people call it boring and say American football rocks (yeah,it does but it's going down the drain thanks to all those rule changes,I started watching in 2003 and since then every season has become more and more pussyfied) while both of these games (baseball and football) are just watching commercials and waiting till something happens. Football=60 minutes=around 12 minutes of actual ball movement. America has created 2 great games to play but when it comes to watching,it's a snorefest (unless your favourite team is playing)

Boring to watch on tv but go out watch the live, amazing.

Fun to play.

Baseball = TV put me sleep.

I only care about the playoff so that's it.

I love baseball. I played as a kid, but never really started following until last 5 years. I used to be in the same boat. I thought baseball was boring, and I thought I knew enough about the game to make that assumption. But there were a ton of rules I didnt know and I really didnt understand the psychology behind it all. I think the key was for me to understand the game, understand why pitchers were relieved, and why they used certain pitchers.

I also enjoy baseball because of the mental toughness you need to have to play. Baseball is like no other team sport where its essentially one on one with the pitcher and hitter. Some of these pitchers have unbelievable poise when they are able to throw a huge pitch with the game on the line.

I was also able to get into baseball better because I began to follow the Dodgers more closely and when you have a team you are rooting for, you want to watch more.

while I agree that televised baseball is spectacularly boring, it beats the pants off of both golf (absolutely the most boring sport ever) and neckcar (which does have the benefit of car crashes).

It's great background noise. I'll put an A's game on while I'm doing something else and such. Also great for listening to on the radio.

And going to the ballpark for a game is a lot of fun. One of my favorite spectator sports.

Major League Baseball is, by FAR, by favorite sport. If that makes me weird, then so be it. I grew up playing the game, and me and my grandpa used to watch the Reds games when I was a kid. It's part of my blood.

Thats funny, I played baseball when I was younger, I used to like it. Now it sucks. That is a fact, I dont know why I ever liked it. I know more about it than you ******.
