Baseball is now played just about in every corner of the world albeit at times very poorly. Baseball is unique among sports, time is of no factor it could be infinitely long or quick as lightning, there is no clock. Every pitch involves strategy, there's movement all the time not seen on TCV, baseball like hockey doesn't translate well to TV as you must be there to see the entire field of play.. In the USA baseball is part of the very societal fabric, the cultura and history of the USA is embedded with baseball, alot of pop cultrue and Americanisms are baseball derived

Baseball is not a world event, if you said football (SOCCER); then I might have understood. But unless a sport is played all around the world then there is no way that it can be the greatest. If it was the greatest; then everybody would have wanted to play it.

Baseball has roots in USA history true. With Negro leagues being part civil rights movements. Providing entertainment during difficult times...

However, you fail to prove that Baseball is better than any other sports. Strategy is played in every sport. Baseball is not the most post popular sport. Soccer(football) is. How can you quantify the value of one sport over another?

sure baseball along with softball is one of the most recreational sports played. Yet, i think basketball is more recreation-ally played. (don't have the stats) But consider how many baseball courts vs Basketball courts exist. Most schools, parks have more basketball courts. #1 reason space, and maintenance cost.

Professionally? in USA there are much more minor baseball leagues than any other professional sport. but at the top level. Consider the TV rating for baseball. Consider ticket prices for baseball. Consider Olympics.

Baseball is not the most popular sport and is not better than other sports

NO! how can it be a sport when over half the team can SIT down in the dugout waiting for their team to play. how can the catcher SIT? 90% of players are over weight men over the age of 30. If you asked baseball players to compete in sprints, strength speed excersizes vs. for example soccer players, soccer would win in athleticism.
