The “team aspect” makes for great talking points at the bar or at the family barbecue, but those who have actually played the game — yes, a Fan Graphs writer is playing this card — surely know better.They know that helpless feeling of watching a teammate bat in the bottom of the last inning, knowing no matter how loud you yell or how much you want it, literally nothing you can do impacts the result on the field.
Basketball requires a well-organized offense with picks and passing and cutting.
Even NASCAR, unwatchable as I find it, has pit crews, one of the most impressive team displays in sports. The game where, for 90% of the live action, it is merely pitcher versus batter.
Others believe that those who do sports on their own have a more virile character than team-players. In my opinion, team sports helps to develop a tough character.
Firstly, these sports are more effective as the work in team helps to communicate with people.
Thus, team sports are more preferable than sports done on one’s own.
