    Depending on where you are sitting, you might want to pay attention to the ball and bat. The ball will go into the stands very often, and at high speeds.

    Things I learned about baseball yesterday.

    1. There is a player named Coco Crisp.
    2. Lots of fireworks!
    3. Waterfalls.
    4. Giant pretzel waving man...(mass amounts of food at ALL TIMES)
    5. There are TWO leagues! One has a DH and one doesn't.
    6. BEACH BALLS!!!
    7. You can get up at anytime to get beer.
    8. You can talk during the entire game.
    9. Steal 3rd base game
    10. Adult Chocolate milk.
    11. Peanut butter jelly time.
    12. There is a sad little "time out play pen" for the extra players.
    13. The wave!
    14. Seventh inning stretch... (WTF was that.)
    15. Angel dogs are overrated.
    16. Peanuts are like the messiest food ever.

    So my first game was yesterday, they hit two home runs in a row which was pretty exciting but other than that it was pretty boring, so I think I'll just stick to hockey... :P Thanks for the all the advice

    Yeah, they can be pretty boring at times. Which is why i don't watch many games on TV. Try again in September. Right before hockey season. That's when they tend to get more exciting.

    I would advise going to a Dodger game so you can compare what the difference between the two are. However I would recommend waiting until at least next year. Right now baseball in Los Angeles is pretty pathetic as neither team really has a roster that makes you get excited and want to get up and go out and see the team play.

    2 years ago when the Angels had Teixeira, the Dodgers had Manroids (who had not been caught yet) they were playing exciting baseball! You would see runs being scored, you would see hits into the gap, balls flying over the walls and pitchers making hitters look foolish. It was a ton of fun and the atmosphere was great!

    Nowadays though with the Dodgers the atmosphere is of fear as everyone is now uncomfortable with the massive amounts of security there. The players? We have Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier and that's about it. If either of them is out of the lineup for the day then you cross your fingers that the Dodgers can scratch and claw their way to 1 run because it sure seems like they are getting shut out a lot...

    As for the Halos, I haven't been to a game in 2 years but having paid attention to their roster the past few seasons you can clearly see that they don't have those players that can elevate them to that next level. If they had a healthy Kendrys Morales this season things would be a LOT different! However with them having to play Trumbo at first base, their offense has taken a massive hit.

    So yes, I definitely say DO NOT GIVE UP ON BASEBALL!!! It is a fun game, it just isn't so great when you know that your team is absolutely pathetic...

    A trip to Petco Park can be a fun experience as well.

    watch an inning standing behind home plate, close to field level. get as much of an umpire's view as possible. gives you an idea of what pitchers are throwing up there.
