Learn all you can about legends such as Ty Cobb, career and life facts and other baseball greats. It’s a way to immerse yourself in a sport you feel so passionate about.
Sure, these baseball simulators and the popular fantasy sports leagues aren’t the same as playing the game, but they are still a great sports-themed hobby to try.
