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 .
