There is no way that baseball is a sport. There is a minimal amount of running, those who participate in it are not in top athletic shape as top athletes for other sports are, and it is ridiculously boring with not nearly enough action.

You're on, buddy!

Sport, as defined by the Merriam Webster dictionary, is a physical activity engaged in for pleasure. Now, baseball requires physical activity, in the pitching, catching, running, batting, throwing, etc., and is engaged in for pleasure, so it is therefore a sport.

noun
1.an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc."

Not sure how you intend on winning this one when "baseball" is included as an example of what a sport is.
