There is quite no denying the different emotions that a game of baseball produces in the participants of the game. By participants it refers to not just the players but the entire family of people involved in baseball from the spectators to the sponsors of a game.
The competitive spirit that is so evident in a game of baseball
There can be no denial that baseball is a very competitive game and it is those teams and players that take to the game with right earnest that produces favorable results. If an analysis of the top twenty teams in a particular league is done, it would be evident that there is very little to separate the different participants. It is that team that performs well on a given day that wins. Statistics and figures do not have much significance at all.
Thus the aim of each of the top ranked team is to perform to the best of the ability no matter the conditions on the field. There could be days when the effort might be below par and the particular team comes a cropper but more often than not, it is the pure consistency that pays of in the long run.
It is quite accepted to lose a game or two during a league completion for any team and it often the bitter rivalries that give additional meanings to the loss or win as might be.
The advantages to the promoters of the game
A typical game of baseball is never just between the two rival teams on the field. There is a larger family that is involved before an actual game starts in the arena. So often the game starts much before two teams meet on the ground.
The very idea of sponsorship is to bring in the big money to games and sports. It is the big corporations that have the largest purses that tend to stand out in the game. From the cornering of the best players to the best available training platforms, the big money has all that it takes to ensure success.
But in any season, it is the giant killer games that stand out as memorable. It is these games that are often discussed for some time to come into the future. Thus the arena is often a place for the less moneyed organizations to have a go at their much richer competition. Who would not love an underdog and the baseball diamond is just the right place for a good fight.
What is to be gained for the ardent follower or the fan?
The best part of any competition is the sheer excitement that the game presents; be it on the television or live in the stadia. Thus the spectator is provided an avenue for letting of some steam. Be it the pressures of the work place or sometimes at home, the baseball game is just the right place to relieve some stress. It does have an entertainment value as well.
