Yeah, it's the same difference as playing poker and watching people play poker.
As a way of having a good time in a company of good friends, both poker and baseball are fun. As a spectator sport, both consist of watching people get paid for not doing much of anything at all.
@monsieuricon Baseball according to the official rules seems a bit too difficult for a casual game. I can see the appeal, though, in principle.
@monsieuricon With the difference that poker isn't a spectator sport played in stadiums seating 20,000.
A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
