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.

a fan was struck in the ass with a baseball and now has an stretched out rectum
The greatest sport ever. PERIOD. Misunderstood by jackasses who have never seen or been to a game.
For everyone who says that baseball is boring, my response is that it is only boring to you because you're too much of an ignorant prick to realize the complexities of the game.
You just see a pitcher throwing a ball to a guy with a bat. You don't see that the pitch is an outside breaking ball because the pitcher's hoping to get the guy to hit a ground ball to the right side for a double play.
You don't see the shortstop and second baseman signal who has coverage every pitch based on the hitter and situation.
You don't see the outfield playing a deep shift to left field when Albert Pujols is batting.
You don't see the pitcher back up third on a ball hit to the outfield with a man on first or, for that matter, the first baseman trailing behind the runner in case of a run-down.
You don't see a pull hitter hitting to the opposite field because there is a gap where the second baseman is playing closer to the bag because he has coverage on the steal.
You just see a man with a glove throwing a ball to a man with a stick...and for THAT...you are a dumbass.
Ignorant baseball hater: Baseball is boring!
Ball fan/player: Why do you say that!
Ignorant baseball hater: Because all it is is some guy throwing a ball to some guy with a stick!
Ball fan/player: But yet you don't see that he's trying to trick the batter into either swinging at a bad pitch or he's trying to get him to hit a ground ball to short? Besides, have you ever tried to hit a 90 MPH fast ball?
Ignorant baseball hater: No.
Ball fan/player: I rest my case.
Baseball is a sport which I know and love. Anyone who can take the time and learn every aspect of this amazing sport is high on my list. It takes cunning, skill, determination, speed (especially), and persistance to do well and have fun. But winning is nice too.
Did you see that baseball player? Look at that speed.
A game only intelligent people understand.
Baseball isn't just about home runs, dumbass!
Yes, people use baseball to define sports and marajuana, but it is also used to describe, surprise surprise, SEX! When people are too ashamed to say what they have done sexually, they refer to the base system.
First Base: Kissing or Making Out
Second Base: Fingering or Touching each other
Third Base: Oral Sex
Home Base: Vaginal Sex
Jack: "I played a little baseball last night."
John: "Really? Did you make a home run?"
Competition to see who can withstand the most steroids.
Boy#1: "Yo Big Jason, do you think the yankees will win the baseball game tonight."
Boy#2: "Nah, they will lose, Alex Rodriguez quit taking steroids a long time ago."
