Like George Carlin said: "One of the 3 real sports."
You need athleticism and strategy. There are usually 9 fielders and a pitcher, who throws complicated pitches like 95mph curveballs to a batter who tries to hit them.
Sure, there are a few more active sports, but you do need athleticism to play baseball. People who call the sport boring, pointless, non-athletic, gay, etc. are either jealous they stink at it, or mentally challenged to a degree.
Tom: Spring is here. What sport shall we play?
Tim: Baseball, of course! It's the best sport ever!
Tom: Of Course!
