Baseball is too basic to play and boring to watch to ever grow in Europe.

Europeans are known for having highly skilled designers, inventors,engineers and athletes. So a dumbed down sport that requires no real skill and is painfully boring to watch has no chance to grow in Europe.

Also Europeans have a zero tolerance view towards steroids unlike USA counter parts.

Whether you enjoy baseball or not at all, competitive baseball requires a lot of skill.

It is unique in its rules & movement across the playing field: most other team sports move from one end of a rectangular field to the other; scoring at the ends of the rectangle. This includes the very popular sports: football, soccer, basketball (on a rectangular court), ice hockey, lacrosse & rugby.
