It’s hard to explain the attraction of Baseball to a non-fan (though not as hard as cricket), but there’s something about the precision and slow construction/destruction of an inning. Like the double-play as explained by this graphic on Eephus League:

There is little on this earth that I love more than the double play; when executed well it’s as graceful and smooth as any ballet and it whispers “There is order amidst all the chaos.”
