Yes, the essence of baseball is the strike zone, but the majesty of the

game is it's dimensions.

Each outfielder is left to patrol more than 25,000 square feet of grass for more than 30 intense minutes spread out over three hours. He is charged with chasing down a palm-sized object moving at up to 100 miles per hour. He must make a decision how to do so in a small fraction of a second. Enjoyment of, and appreciation of, such skill is greatly enhanced at the venue.

The same is even true for routine throws. I sit about 30 feet passed first base down the right field line. From that perspective, I even enjoy watching throws from the third baseman over to first. It is amazing to watch how much the ball moves and how the first baseman must adjust to the throw.

Yeah, there is nothing like being at the ballpark.
