I believe that Football is more mentally tough than the sport of Baseball.

I know that they say baseball is mostly mental and all of that but football is still more mentally tough.

I will let my opponent go first

Good luck

Con

Only the balliest can be con for this debate.

Football doesn't require much mental toughness depending on how old you are and even at the high school level it doesn't apply, we have a retarded kid on our team.

But baseball, oh man, it requires plenty of mental stamina, somewhere between swinging the bat and jogging about 30 yards I almost lose it!

is the con the retarded kid he talks about? Evidently the kid has never played football, nor seen an NFL playbook or ANY playbook for that matter. Being able to execute against and find flaws in a defense as well as an offense is on par with military strategy or chess and requires much more mental exertion for a quarterback to choose between audibles and being able to choose between 4 recievers on a 50 yard spread before getting his clock cleaned usually within 3 seconds. Baseball you have to be able to connect with a ball thrown at high speed which relies much more on reflex than mental ability. Many top draft picks continue with education and achieve some of the HIGHEST professional titles as with Derrick Brooks All Pro Superbowl Champ of the Buccaneers who also holds a Law degree and graduated with a 3.7GPA. Many baseball players on the other hand enter straight from highschool and do not continue(sadly) with their education. This is not even a fair debate!
