One of the reasons baseball is so cool is….the ball. Sure, all the other balls (and pucks) have their merits, but the baseball wins out.
- Basketball: needs to be inflated, not dangerous, too big for a backpack so must be hand-carried.
- Football: needs to be inflated, not dangerous, you can’t dribble it or throw it against a wall to practice.
- Hockey puck: dangerous, but you can’t do much without a hockey stick and ice.
- Golf: requires a golf course.
- Lacrosse: requires a lacrosse…..course.
- Tennis: okay, a tennis ball is actually pretty versatile…
But in the end, the baseball looks coolest, is the perfect weight, and is fun to carry around.
