What's not to love about a sport where you can sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch or snag a bag of peanuts tossed by a vendor in the stands? No wonder baseball is considered America's national pastime—it's one of the most relaxing and enjoyable games to watch, and great family fun!
Seeing a game in the big leagues can be big entertainment—but if you've got little kids with short attention spans, expensive tickets to major league games can be a risky proposition. Try looking for a minor league team, college or high school baseball games, or even your local little league for an afternoon of baseball fever. On the other hand, if you dream of warm-up drills and Ball Park franks on the grill, it's time for a neighborhood ballgame. Start by gathering the kids and heading to your backyard or a local park. Play a little catch, pepper and pickle, but keep in mind that it is game time the kids really crave.
