Baseball is a game that requires the fans actually to understand it and pay attention. Unlike basketball, which primarily requires the fans to spend the whole game listening to very expensive shoes squeak, or hockey, which consists of watching people get paid to skate around waving sticks until a fight breaks out, or football, in which twelve sides of beef on each team collide violently over a.nd over again to little purpose, baseball is an exquisitely tuned balance of skill, power, finesse, mind and endurance that requires the fans to rise to the occasion rather than slumping back in mindless torpor. Let those of lower capacity sink to the level of those other so-called sports; the fans capable of appreciating baseball rightly treasure the one game that brings out the best in them.
