Baseball or Cricket?
 
I recently visited a site called Baseball Vs Cricket - Home and found that cricket is quite similar in some ways. just wanna know what you guys think about both sports.

I am an Australian so I've been around cricket since birth. The 2 games are extremely similar, but I find that baseball is more "fun" and more appealing.

I personally prefer baseball but cricket isn't a '****' sport. You guys should try hitting a ball with a big wooden mallet. Pretty fun.

Both sports are similar in the sense that they are both quite quirky.

There are far more formats involved in cricket though

I cant stand cricket to be honest. Alot of people play over here obviously (UK) and we used to play at school etc but i find it boring, it's just something to do in the summer when the football season's finished for alot of people :)

I prefer baseball over cricket. Twenty20 looks more interesting than Test Cricket. I don't know how test cricket has survived the modern world. Many people don't have a few hours free to watch sports; much less five days.

Is there much coverage of it in the States? My mate from over here lives in NYC and came back for his stag do, the cricket was on when we were in the pub and he reckoned his missus who's from Ohio wouldnt even be able to name what sport it was

Not much coverage, I have only seen games broadcasted twice here. Most recent was like three or four years ago; West Indies All-Stars versus some other team. Sky Sports on FOX Soccer Channel definitely shows highlights.

I live in the United States so... Baseball.

Baseball! Similar difficulty in its own respect but baseball has more appeal and i think its more challenging than Cricket. However, imagine a 5 day long ball game?

Some information about one of the fastest growing Professional sports leagues in the world:
