What is baseball, really? (part 3 of 4: Baseball is most like NASCAR)

Baseball has more in common with NASCAR than another sport.

Both baseball and NASCAR involve getting around a circle as fast as possible. That’s really the point of baseball. To run around in a complete circle. I can’t think of any other sports besides track and NASCAR that has the main point to be running in a circle. In baseball, they just slow things down a bit by adding the fact that there’s a ball involved.

Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE baseball. It’s just fun to think of baseball abstractly.
