To me, baseball is more than just a game. It is a major part of my life, and something that I have always had to keep me busy. Most recently, it has helped me get into college. The feeling of hitting a baseball has never gotten old. The ping it makes and watching the ball fly has always been my favorite part of the game. Rounding the bases and being able to roll around in the dirt isn’t too bad, either. The excitement never left, and I like to think that it will never leave for anyone who is choosing to play baseball, regardless of the level.
It’s disappointing, then, from a fan’s perspective, to see the excitement of the game taper off, most recently evident in the decreased viewership in the 2022 World Series that saw the Houston Astros defeat the Philadelphia Phillies.
