America's Favorite Pastime and More
The bat makes contact with the ball, and the crack the ball makes
reverberates from home plate, all the way back to the cheap seats. The
whole place smells like popcorn, hot dogs, and beer, with notes of dirt
and chalk. Taken together, the entirety of the baseball experience adds
up to something much more than just a game for players and fans.
Baseball is widely known as "America's favorite pastime." To anyone who
has ever spent a warm Sunday afternoon absorbing its many charms, the
claim ceases to feel like a boast or innocent exaggeration and instead
feels like an incantation, something a nation says in a simultaneous
whisper to open up a portal to a simpler, less hectic time. For decades,
fans have flocked to baseball games to soak in the sights, sounds, and
smells of not only spirited competition but also community. The sport
has a sort of mystical allure that inspires diehards to go to great
lengths to find the best seat in which to soak in the experience, and
that means hunting down tickets. Across the country, families buy
tickets to root for the home team, and they also seek out seats for a
wide variety of other entertaining events, such as musicals, plays,
concerts, and more.
