Hitting the ball is more about timing then any tangible physical attribute. I guess it all depends on your definition of a sport.

True, I agree though. I never really liked baseball because I always liked physical contact sports. I could even categorize Snowboarding as a sport because that **** is painful and hard work.

Anyone who thinks baseball isn't a sport probably never faced a really good pitcher in their lives. That being said, it's brutal to watch baseball when you compare it to football or hockey. Football is great because every game is so important. And in hockey, ten things can happen on the ice in the time it takes between pitches of a baseball game.

As far as basketball, I hate to say it but just give me the last three minutes of the game....that is, if it doesn't turn into a foul shooting contest.

They all looked the same to me. :) I actually took off from work both times to attend the parades. They were amazing! So many people, maybe as many people as the one in Times Square during NYE. Saw Flavor Flav in one of the floats the last time. Did not expect that but did not expect him to hug Coughlin either. Some players got off the float and was dancing and revving up the crowd. There was seriously no shortage of confetti. The one in Miami looked like the confetti was coming from the bus they were riding. LOL!

It depends on what your definition of a sport is though. Not saying my definition is correct, but i define it as an activity where excelling in a particular or set of physical attribute (such as strength, speed, quickness,etc) greatly and definitely increases your chance to succeed. So for me, baseball isn't a sport. Neither is golf. However, golf would become a sport if say a time limit scoring rule is imposed. So the faster you finish the round, the lower the score. The further you drive the ball, you get bonus shots deducted. That way if you super strong, super fit, and super fast, yet still very accurate - you'll be the best.

I know it's because I'm so damn old, but I just can't generate enthusiasm within myself for the NBA - and I try. I haven't given up and will try again next season. But due to my age and memories, I have a hard time recognizing the game as "basketball". A man drives the basket, plants his forearm into the chest of the defender and pushes the defender back on his heels as he finger-rolls the ball into the basket, and if a foul is called, it's most likely called on the defender. It just doesn't compute in my 65-year old noggin. But, ever hopeful, I'll give it another go next season - maybe the magic everyone else sees will finally filter through.

By your definition, wouldn't you say reaction time, eye hand coordination, quickness, agility and strength are all components of hitting a baseball? Or, for that matter, playing a position like third base?

You meant to say hitting balls out of the ballpark, throwing balls at 90mph, etc don't display strength? Stealing bases, making double and triple plays, leaping to make those unbelievable catches not a show of speed and quickness? Of course, not to add playing 162 games for the season. If that's not showing your athletic abilities and stamina, then I don't know what is. That's just too much disrespect for America's pasttime if you ask me.

You things like reflexes, etc at other things too - like playing music instruments. Physical attributes alone, having great quicknes, agility, and strength won't make you a good hitter.

When kids are drafted in baseball, teams don't think - he has surprising quickness, speed, and strength ..we're going to draft him high. It's just not that important.

Pitching is more of a sport than hitting is imo.

Pitching alone is much more a sport than hitting though. If someone can throw 90, than there is significant strength there and when you can throw 90, your rate of success is much much higher.

Baseball is the only major sport in America that scoops up young kids while they're in their teens. Do you think they sign them because they are already established and pro ready? No. They see the potential and all these attributes you listed above. Unlike the NFL, where you have the combine and all these workouts specifically for college players, MLB teams are very sophisticated and put a huge emphasis on scouting throughout the world to find some of the most talented kids who stand out.

MLB scouts look for everything. Speed, quickness, arm strength, agility etc. Power is probably one of the least important attributes. If MLB scouts don't look for for these qualities, what exactly are they looking for then?

Can't agree with this on any level. For starters, while eye hand coordination and reaction time can be improved with repetition, there is a "physical attribute" component to them. Not everyone can be a great hitter (or a hockey goalie for that matter). Some people are just born with more effective neurological pathways.

Also, I don't understand how separating these qualities advances an argument that baseball is not a sport.

Wether or not people will agree I think is just a differing opinion of sport.
For me, Sport is anything done for competition's sake. So, like it or not, frigging Nascar's a sport... ping-pong's a sport... pumpkin growing can be a sport lol.
If the event is pitting individuals or teams up against each other or all at once, it is sport.

Baseball and golf are definitely sports, albeit painfully boring sports to watch.

For me, I played hockey all year round as a kid growing up. Roller hockey, ice hockey, travel teams, summer hockey camps etc. I never had time to play baseball so as an adult I have no interest in it at all. I've tried. I hate it.

Currently for me we are in what I call the Sports Drought which is the time of the year I dread the most. It is after the NBA and NHL finals conclude, and we are left with nothing but baseball, baseball, baseball until August. I can't listen to WFAN in the summer cause it's just Yankees and Mets 24/7. I can't put on SportsCenter because it's all baseball highlights.

I have nothing against people who love baseball, but I think football is definitely the official and best sport of America.
