What’s the fundamental difference between baseball and basketball?

Gerald Hall, the director of a youth baseball program in Washington, says:

“Baseball is a game taught by fathers, while basketball and football are more often taught by peers in pickup games.

If you did a survey, I believe you’d find that the one thing average and above-average baseball players have in common is a father.

Baseball is, at heart, a father-and-son sport.

And if you’re a kid that has nobody to throw to, nobody to talk to, nobody to discipline you in the way that baseball demands, you’re not likely to play the game.”  Source

Play ball!
