Why is baseball called national pastime and not national sport?
because it sucks
No, it does not suck. It's an amazingly fun "game" to play, but
I would dare calling it a sport. There is hardly any strenuous
physical activity required. This makes people test their limits of
spirit and mind which evokes competition, which a true sport has. I
even recall seeing fat players in baseball teams, who probably
gained a spot only for their batting skills.
Baseball doesnt suck and it is a sport and it is a very fun
sport to play and it is hard at points. baseball is called our
national pastime for a reason many people do like to watch it and
its not called our national sport because its not .
