As usual, the 2019 Major League Baseball schedule looks to be packed with fantastic matchups all season long. The 2019 schedule features 162 games for each team, which makes for a long season but plenty of opportunities for fans to attend games. Seeing a baseball game from the stands is a totally different experience than watching it from your living room, and you'll have plenty of chances to see some big matchups in 2019. Rivalry games are some of the best matchups every year, especially that between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. The MLB playoffs are always filled with incredible action and intense moments that have the fans in attendance on their edges of their seats. It all leads up to the World Series, one of the most storied championship series in the history of sports.
Seeing a college baseball game is another great way to catch some impressive baseball action live and in person. Fans of the game can also attend Minor League Baseball games, which are less expensive than tickets to a Major League game.
Baseball is known as America's pastime and is a special game for many people across the United States. The sport is steeped in tradition and has a rich history that fans of the game appreciate to the highest degree. Baseball was first organized into a league in the 1860s with The National Association of Base Ball Players. This organization was the foundation for what would become Major League Baseball. Babe Ruth was baseball's first superstar player, as his hitting prowess was legendary during his time and remains so to this day. Ruth was so ahead of his time as far as home run hitting went, some seasons he hit more home runs than entire teams. Ruth set the single season home run record with 60 during his career, a record that would stand until 1961 when it was broken by Roger Maris. Jackie Robinson was the first African American player to play in Major League Baseball, breaking the color barrier and winning the league's first Rookie of the Year award. In the 1970s, Henry "Hank" Aaron would break Ruth's career home run record, which was 714. Aaron ended up hitting 755 homers during his career. Major League Baseball is broken into two leagues, the American League and the National League. For a long time the team with the best record from each league received an automatic trip to the World Series, where the World Champions of baseball would be decided. Currently there is a playoff format in which five teams from each league make the postseason and have to win multiple series to advance to the World Series.
Seeing a baseball game in person is doing it the way it was meant to be done. Going to a game is an experience that goes beyond watching a bunch of players throw and the hit the ball all over the field. It's the smell of the stadium, the roar of the crowd, the atmosphere that make it such a wonderful time. People have been going to baseball games for more than 100 years, so it stands to reason that it's something worth doing.
