    The only time i dont mind baseball is when i am high as a kite on pot...otherwise, it is a joke...everything about it is a joke except hitting, which i think is harder than cricket.

    And i had the same experience as some of the folks on this thread- people were shocked to see me 'risk' catching a baseball without the mitt....

    Cricket's a way better game all they do in baseball is tamper with the rules of cricket to make it easier and more funner. eg they catch with a glove we catch with hands, they give the batsman 3 opportunities in cricket we only get one, just little stuff like that. Plus in baseball you have to generally be some big fat guy to be good at it. In cricket you can be 6ft-6 110 kg fast bowler or a 5ft 7 skinny wicketkeeper. Plus to play cricket you need alot of patience

    60.5 feet, I think. Less than a cricket pitch.

    Should we start a poll about whether baseball is a sport worth watching?

    The thing is Americans don't like to think they inherited anything from England. They just want to think they have unique sports.

    I like both sports. I can't say I find either of them boring. I can probably sit through a whole game of baseball, but I must admit I sometimes do struggle watching even an ODI in it's entirity. Depends who's playing I guess.

    Errm, that's not what a "hit" in baseball is. A hit is when you hit the ball successfully away from the fielders and get to first base (at least)... it is equivalent to a run in cricket, although of course much less common. If you hit the ball and it is caught or you are out at first then you've failed to get a hit.

    And so what baseball is popular in 4 countries so it becomes an Olympic sport??

    Cricket is played in far more countries and got millions of more fans than baseball...and yet baseball is in the Olympics...

    whether something is in the Olympics isnt just based on popularity...archery???? Syncronised Swimming?????

    I think baseball is a popular sport in more than just 4 countries. There used to be (I dont know if there is now) a large playing population in Australia for instance (obviously not as big as cricket, rugby etc, but still substantial)
