The best game ever created. A game that takes exceptional athleticism, exceptional knowledge of the game, and intelligence. The only sport in which you can succeed 30% of the time and be considered great. That in itself shows how difficult of a sport it is to play. Many people argue that hitting a baseball is the most difficult thing to do in all of sports. Now whether you disagree or agree, there is no question that hitting a 90+ MPH baseball is extremely difficult and takes a great amount of skill. Not to mention the ball can curve, cut, sink, slide, etc. Also, throwing a baseball is one of the most unnatural things that your body can do, and throwing it with great velocity is a very special thing that very few can do. The most difficult sport to play (except maybe for golf) by far. Anybody can pick up a basketball or a football and be decent at it without ever practicing, that does not apply in baseball. You either can play the game, or you can't. Bottomline: it is America's favorite pastime and always will be. It's more than just a game, it's a way of life.
Derek Jeter is one of the greatest hitters in baseball in recent memory.
