Here in France they say it's baseball your national sport, is this true?
WE have many sports in the US..
Soccer (football everywhere else)
The time of year can depict which sport is most popular.
I'm from America, where Baseball is the National pastime.
I don't think the kids these days play baseball like we did when I was a kid.
We used to get the whole neighborhood together for unofficial almost-full team games on Saturday AMs.
7-8 players per team is enough to play.
Seriously, you used to have to ride around on your bike confirming who's gonna play tomorrow on Friday night.
I love most all sports.....football being # 1.
In America there is no one sport to make that claim.
It used to be Baseball, but not for a long time now.
Football comes closest nationwide, with Hockey having big time fanhood in certain parts of the country.
It is. And there are theories that it came from France.
Yeah, I'm a big Hockey fan, cause I grew up playing on the frozen lakes when I was a kid.
I live in Florida. Our biggest lake experience was building a bike ramp into the lake when it was cold.
Ok thanks for your answers, I also saw on the show Pawn Star that it is the baseball your oldest sport in the USA?
We did that every day. No need to wait for a weekend.
I should say, every day after prison school was out, until we were sentenced to return in September.
Of the major ones baseball is oldest, yes I believe so. Well back into the 19th century and its prior forms at least into the 18th century.
We are in baseball season right now. The only reason we have football and basketball is that it eventually gets too cold to play baseball. And the only reason we have hockey is that Canada invaded us when it saw we had a dead spot after everybody was tired of playing basketball.
Which doesn't take long.
