Reasons to Get into Baseball

Baseball is undoubtedly a huge phenomenon in the United States, but there’s only a small number of people who’d call themselves dedicated fans here in the UK.

In this respect, baseball’s flagging behind American football, basketball and ice hockey—the rest of America’s ‘big four’ sports. However, this could be about to change.
