In the earliest days of baseball, Getting the game on television was not possible..... So if you did not have a ticket you would huddle with your budies around a radio to hear the game. But if you had a ticket, you would always go see your team. When you go to a ball game, you have time to get a hotdog, or take a leak, and not miss any action at all. Between innings there is extra time to chat with your kids, friends, foes, in the crowd. Lastly, the legends back then were something else. Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Mickey, and so on.
