    Apparently no one.

    If you didn’t like the baseball game the first time, why did you go again?

    Please qualify your remarks:

    In my opinion the most interesting part…

    Millions and millions of us enjoy the game.

    It’s been more than five years so if you’d been a fan for at least 15 years prior and were a fan for a decent enough team, I’d say you are on the ballot!

    I used to love going to baseball games as a kid. I was an Indians fan in the seventies and eighties, which meant I could get into the game for $5.00, and the old Municipal Stadium (the “Mistake on the Lake”) had 96,000 seats, but averaged less than 5,000 people per game. It’s like each one of us had our own personal hotdog vendor.

    I’ve been a fan for 35 years and LOVE the game, win or lose it is “the only sport” in my book. (Win is always better of course!!)

    “Fan” is short for fanatic. Just saying.

    Sorry, but you’re just factually wrong. Proof:

    Baseball: Big men with sticks that they use to hit a ball.

    Hockey: Big men with sticks that they use to hit each other.

    Winner: Hockey.

    I’m a Red Sox fan. I remember a game in the late seventies, when—as you know—Cleveland was mired deep in the cellar in an end-of-season game. It was played in Cleveland, and the behind-the-pitcher camera angle showed the seats behind home plate. There was one person visible; only one. He applauded at the end of every pitch, regardless of who threw it or what the outcome was. And the stadium was so deserted that you could HEAR him clapping on TV.

    And the most bizarre game I ever saw was a different Sox/Indians game in Fenway. At the end of one inning the score was 3-3. At the end of the next inning, Cleveland was up 19-9. I’ve never seen any team score that many runs in one inning.

    Baseball’s not for everyone. I have a gay friend who was watching a game with me one day, and decided that the outfielders didn’t have very much to do for most of the game. He suggested they put benches out in the outfield so they could hang out until they needed to get up. I suggested he try fishing with a golf club. That was his last suggestion.
