Fact: baseball is America's pastime.
Some people today might disagree with that statement. Those people are wrong. What makes baseball America's pastime cannot be measured in TV ratings or ticket sales. Baseball is the national pastime because it is the sport that is most characteristically American. Don't believe me? Read London Telegraph journalist Dr. Tim Stanley's take on baseball and the USA: "[B]aseball is an analogy for The American Way." I won't quote further because it is a fascinating article that every
baseball fan sports fan American should read.
