    shutup baseball really isn't hard the only aspect is dependepnt upon your position.
    Catch and pitch
    catch and hit.

    easy as shit noone cares ho w fast the ball is or if it does fucking loop de loops, it's two things over and over and over.

    it's a waste of your life if you spend your whole childhood years practicing and playing it and don't end up in the pros.

    not at all... pitching is hard as fuck, and hitting is hard as fuck. that's why most people who DO spend their lives practicing it still aren't even close to perfect. if repetition of the activity constitutes difficulty to you, i suppose soccer is mindnumbingly easy because its just running and kicking. basketball too, its just running and throwing. boxing is just punching. golfing is just swinging a club. any sport actually can be reduced to one or two actions, really.


    there was a list from some magazine that's been floating around, and I think it rated boxing as the hardest sport. I don't think it included MMA/UFC stuff so that might arguably be tougher.

    When I was like 2 I went to my first cubs game, and my dad would put on the cubs/tigers and I would imitate the players.

    but with baseball, a 95 mph fastball, you have .2 seconds to react.
    so if you blink you have missed the ball already.

    plus the when the ball goes into play, there is a whole lot more space for the ball to go than in anyother sport.
    Okay, wrestling is a sport, boxing is a sport. but if you put the two together it's not a sport?

    And for baseball, it's a lot more time than that if you think about it. Cause look, the batter starts his motion when the pitcher starts his, he stops the motion when he realizes the ball is off the plate.

    on sports science, out of all the tests they did, hitting a major league pitch was the hardest.

    there is a lot more to baseball than "hitting a ball and running in a circle". strategy is huge, there are so many aspects.

    but these threads always turn into a popularity contest anyway.

    I still think tough man and worlds strongest man contests take the cake, I like watching the injuries that happen. Some dude was running with a fridge strapped to his back and all of a sudden his right leg gives out and snaps, looked like fucking rubber bending the opposite way.

    It's actually second on that ESPN list...

    I would say hockey but its a biased opinion, I've played since I was 4. I've played other sports, and none of them stand up to hockey IMO (out of baseball, basketball, football, and soccer)

    Everyones just going to say the sport they like the most anyway...95% of people that say hockey is easy haven't even played legit ice hockey before...

    That's my sport.

    Anyway, rugby has to be considered because you are moving nonstop, the field is way bigger than football's and they don't wear pads.

    I remember when I was told of story of crushed velvet, candle wax, and dried up flowers. The figure on the bed all dressed up in roses, calling.beckoning to sleep offering a dream. The words were as mystical as purring animals. The circle of rage the ghosts on the stage appeared. The time was so tangible I\\'ll never let it go. Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away.

    Nah, just coincidence, haha.

    I'd love to take part in a cheese roll. And how good would it be to be able to say you won one.

    I've seen one of the hills they do it down, the thing is ruddy massive.

    MMA hands down. training 3 times a day 10 months out of the year. constantly getting your legs kicked, your face punched, your neck choked. fighters have to go through brutal strength and conditioning programs
