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.
I don't think thats a very good comparison. I read many books and still find baseball to be boring as hell.
