Pro

Baseball is better than basketball because it takes more intellectual thought. Also, it is Americas past time. So, if you are an American you have to love baseball. Also, all basketball is, is a bunch of thugs running up and down a court. Also, they really don't start playing in tell the last 19 seconds. Another reason baseball is better than basketball is because in baseball both teams get a equal amount of chances no matter what. There is no time limit like there is in basketball.

Con

Baseball actually takes no inteligence to play. you hit a ball with a stick and run for about 15 feet and then wait. In basket ball however you need to wiegh chances and risks in less than a few seconds. It also takes skill and geometry to play and so it is very dificult.

First of all biblibobish Baseball takes a high amount of intellect, the more effective you are at your mental game, the better you perform at baseball. You need to be out on top always on your feet. Oh and by the way you don't run 15 feet to get to first base. You run 90 feet, once you have a better understanding of baseball, you may be able to provide a solid argument.

Ooohhh... this is a close call. Since it won't let me vote yet because I haven't completed three debates, I will just say my opinion. Billybobish has sort of the better arguments, but biblibobish (these names are giving me a headache) has a better reasoning (no, arguments and reasoning are not the same). Since I actually play basketball, I have to go with biblibobish, but that is because I have never played baseball.

Apparently baseball is better than basketball because it requires more intelligence. I agree!

Reasons for voting decision: Countering Ginger's vote, since no sources were produced, both sides had equal spelling and grammar, and no one had better conduct.

Reasons for voting decision: This debate was very bad. Nobody made good arguments, but I have to give grammar to Pro because Con did not capitalize his second sentence and spelled difficult wrong.

Reasons for voting decision: I agreed with Con from the beginning. I did not like Pro's argument about how if you are American, you like baseball, well millions of people dont play and millions dont like baseball. I believe that baseball takes no intellectual skill and there is no excitement at all in base ball so i votes con
