Yeah, I agree, to the point that I was ready to type out a coladar-esque post about younger people, but this isn't really the place for that.
This is true. Baseball and hockey in person gives you a much better idea of all that's going on in the game.
But I do love watching on TV these days when you can see stuff like pitchtrax.
Guy next to me last week at the Nats game had an IPad with all kinds of pitch tracking going on. My wife just kept laughing at him every time she looked over there. I, of course, was very fascinated.
