Baseball or soccer
Baseball or soccer, which is your favourite sport and why?

It depends.

Baseball has many rules and rather simple strategy compared with soccer.

Baseball is easy to enjoy (seeing) and soccer sometimes needs skills or insight to enjoy seeing the game.

I prefer baseball. My father played in the minor leagues, and I played a lot when I was a kid. Here in Japan it is still the national sport, though soccer comes a bit closer each year. It seems that Japan's baseball players do better overseas than their soccer players, so that helps to keep baseball on top.

Since I have moved to Japan, I have been to a few baseball games here. I have been to the Tokyo Dome, Seibu Lions stadium, and the Marines stadium in Chiba. Japanese baseball is fast-paced and exciting compared to watching the game in America. The fans are quite serious, there is a lot of music and singing, and the teams have cheerleaders, which is something American games don't have.

Japanese soccer games are almost as noisy as the baseball games. Personally, I get a little tired of the team songs and noise, I prefer just to watch the games.
