To me baseball is more entertaining because I relate more to it. I actually play softball which is similar to baseball and I enjoy it a lot more than basketball.

In my opinion basketball is a more entertaining sport for multiple reasons. Basketball for one is a more fast paced type of game that seems to have continuous action for 48 minutes. Baseball on the other hand is slower paced and can lag on for hours with no true depiction on when the game could possibly end.

I don't agree with you that basketball is better than baseball. Baseball has a slower pace but you get to enjoy it more, it makes it more calmer and easier to watch and enjoy. Since basketball is faster its less of an excitement, you just watch it for 48 minutes like you said, its not much.

Baseball is also one of those sports that you don't know quite what to expect when attending a game. Games could end with only one team scoring. Would you want to attend a game where you spend hundreds of dollars to watch and the end result is nothing but a 1-0 score. In my opinion If I was to spend that much money on a event I would want to be satisfied with entertainment and not a boring experience. Basketball on the other hand is full of excitement, and I know that every game I attend will be full of nothing but pure staisfaction.

I disagree because in both basketball AND baseball you don't know what to expect, actually in any game, you can never really know the outcome. In baseball the game can go up to so many innings and in basketball they could extend it to another quarter.. I think is safe to say both are great sports but In my opinion I rather sit at a baseball game and watch it get a score of 1-0, pay that amount of money than to sit and watch a basketball game for 48 minutes
