Bat-and-ball game originating in Britain, where it is called “Rounders” and is principally played by schoolgirls.
At any given time it involves one pitching-&-fielding team, who must dismiss the batsmen by throwing the ball past them to a catcher, and one batting team who must strike the ball in such away as to enable them to run between the “plates” or “bases” and so amass points.

Apparently also played by grown men, in the Colonies.
Q : Will you be watching the baseball?
A : What, rounders? My good man, watching schoolgirls is *illegal* in my country.

The American version of cricket. Often focused around the MLB (Major League Baseball, mostly american teams) where there are overpaid, underworked "athletes". Most noted for lax restrictions on performance-enhancing drugs in its top players and its likelihood of most players to be on the injured list for injuries that would be laughed at in other sports (cuts, scrapes, strains...etc) Often is very boring, athletes will only play in nice weather (game called on account of rain is never heard in any other sport). Juggernauts such as the yankees, who's team is worth over 1 billion dollars pay for a dream team who rarely performs.
Man 1- Want to go watch the baseball game?
Man 2- I'd rather shoot myself in the foot.

A game which has a world series only involving American teams since no one else plays it. Quite similar to rounders as played by school girls around Britain and just as boring to watch as cricket.
Baseball world series - there is no world outside the US

Contrary to poular belief on the front page.
Australia does NOT play baseball or encourage it in any way. Cricket is a much better sport.
Baseball suks. too much drugs

It's a fun game just to watch and play, and losers with no friends tend to overanalyze the game by citing obscure statistics, like ops.
Fan 1: So who's gonna win today? The White Sox or the Yankees?
Fan 2: The Yankees seem superior on paper, but White Sox sluggers have a .97% greater chance of stealing bases against right-handed starting pitchers on Tuesday day games...

A game losers play because they aren't cool enough for lacrosse. also, baseball is meant for people that are lazy and are afraid to get hurt.
Johnny is a loser, so he plays baseball.
