Out of all the vast variety of sports there are, baseball is the most challenging and difficult sport to play. No other sport compares to the degree of difficulty that you have to deal with, like you do in playing the game of baseball. There are so many different elements that make this game the most difficult. Three major elements stick out in my mind as to why this wonderful sport is the toughest of all. The three main factors in my mind are the increased physical and hand eye coordination component, the mental aspect of this game, and the human interdependence between umpires, which are a vital part in every play.
The memories shared through generations of baseball can be pictured by many, the pickup game of all the neighborhood boys in the vacant lot down the street, the miraculous foul ball landing right in your lap, the classic summer day spent at the ballpark eating hotdogs and singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and “Sweet Caroline.” But more recently, these classic memories are being replaced by those of overbearing Little League coaches who need to take a chill pill, boring games that go on for nine extra innings, and overpriced hotdogs that just don’t taste right.
Baseball has been played by millions of people all over the world. The sport has been a staple of entertainment on radio and tv for many years. And just in the last few decades there has been a huge spike in arm injuries, and a lot of them have been in younger players. "Year-round baseball is number one,"is what Dr. Andrews said about Tommy John surgery(Snyder). What year round baseball means is that players play baseball in the fall and winter months, this never happened in years before. Also kids are now being allowed times for their arms to rest and heal. Year round baseball should definitely be regulated one reason is the increasing amount of arm injuries in younger kids, Also the kids may burn out mentally and not want to play the sport anymore, they may just one day say they do not want to
A. Baseball purists argue that contraction will bring the game back to the way it was meant to be with only the best out on the field playing.
I feel as baseball should get more credit and many more people can agree with me.
The regular season of major league baseball is composed of one hundred and sixty-two games for thirty teams ranging from April-October. Twenty of these games is between the American and National league called interleague play. Each of these games are a minimum of nine innings and twenty-seven outs. However, if the game was tied in the 9th inning, it continues until the winning run comes across home plate. These games lead up to the famous All-Star Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game in the second or third Tuesday in July.
Baseball like all other sporting events is entertainment. No professional sports organization could succeed without the
The new rules of modern day baseball involved the ability to steal bases, how the fields were built, and how many players are allowed on one team in the MLB. Bat sizes along with pitchers mounds have been changed as well for new requirements in the MLB. The new rules also allowed a batter to take a free base when hit by a pitch, or when taken four balls out of the strike zone. Many changes have been changed since starting the game until todays game, such as, instead of a team winning when one side scored twenty-one aces, a team today wins by scoring the most runs through nine innings of baseball. In 1858, strikes were introduced and now batters could get called out on strikes. In 1863 the bat size regulation was introduced, someone had to have a required size bat to play. Batting averages were introduced in 1865 along with the batter being able to call a low or high pitch in 1867. The most recent rule was in 2008 when the MLB added limited instant reply to be in affect for all games, this started August 29, 2008. In todays baseball, there are rules in which a limited amount of players can be on a team, and all the extra players go to either free agency or go to double-AA or triple-AAA. The save rule was finally changed in 1975 along with the suspension of players using bats that are filled, flattened, or doctored.
After years of learning, playing, and watching baseball I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the perfect sport. I have been obsessing over the sport since I was six and it has been my air for nine years. There are many reasons why I love the sport; it is challenging, so you can always become a better ball player. Baseball also is a game of strategy, that makes you debate whether or not to bunt, steal, or hit a sacrifice fly ball. America’s pastime is a very entertaining sport that leaves all spectators on the edge of their seat’s. Baseball is by far my favorite sport and is the perfect sport.
Baseball was created by Abner Doubleday in 1839. Soon after creating the sport Abner left home to fight in the Civil War. Since then baseball has changed immensely, from the calling of strikes in 1858 to the sliding rule placed in 2016. There has many so many changes and adaptations to the game, all for the better. Some basic rules are: the pitching rubber is 60’ 6’’ away from home plate, each team has nine players on defense at a time, three strikes is an out, while four balls is a walk, three outs is a change of sides on the inning, bases are ninety feet apart totaling three-hundred and sixty feet around, The bat is a smooth, round stick not more than 2 3/4 inches in diameter at the thickest part and not more than 42 inches in length.

If a fan is truly a fan then they will watch the great game of baseball. As Keaton Moore states, “As fans annually fill up ballparks throughout the country, baseball is more than the nine players who take the field. The excitement and wonder keeps fans coming back to the American Pastime year after year”(Moore). The problem is not how long it is. The problem is the people need to love and enjoy the game. They need to love a smells of popcorn, hot dogs, and excitement of watching your favorite team hit the ball out of the park and watching them dive, snag, and jump for the ball. One of best feeling is when you catch a foul or home run ball at the game or when you sing take me out to the ball
The game of Baseball is 12 innings long, one team hits and the other team pitches, it is none contact sport where most of the time there is no action happening, unlike other sports where crowds are interacting with what is happening on the field most of the spectators in a baseball field sit and eat food. Also watching it on television takes long hours of sitting in front of the television with most of the time players commercials are played because of lack of action.
Their are many ways in which the game of baseball has changed since its invention. Baseball started out as an amateur sport with a loose organization of rules. When the baseball league was created in 1876 it changed many of the rules that were associated with the original game. For example the league came up with the base-on-balls rule which changed from allowing a total of nine pitches per person to four
A baseball game directly compares itself to life. You want your team to win, you want to feel the thrill in the air, and you would not mind if it went into extra innings. Most of the time, success comes with winning. The thrill you feel at a baseball game relates to the unexpected yet satisfying a heavenward in life. Staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle will potentially add extra years (innings) onto your life. Picture life as a baseball and hit it out of the
The sport of baseball, otherwise known as “America’s favorite pastime”, has reportedly been around since the 17th century. It has had its ups and downs like every other sport, but the crazy history of how it came about is quite extensive. Having to find new players that no one would think of to play and eventually having the first ever World Series; the sport has changed throughout time.
