The thrill of baseball is the situation. Understanding what's at stake in the situation, and waiting to see what happens, that's where it's at. If you understand how the game is unfolding, have a guess at strategy and try and anticipate the outcomes, there's usually a story that tells itself by the end.

if you can't watch a game proactively like that, and have to see the game only through the announcer's comments and the white ball going past the hitter most of the time, it's not going to work for you.
Which makes it unique in the sports world because no other sports have any situations. On a less sarcastic note, there is nothing more exciting than the "strike em out, throw em out" double play.
