    Why are baseball players so much more intelligent than the athletes in other sports?

    i.e. football and basketball.

    Is it because it's a sport that requires significantly more intelligence in comparison to the other sports?

    Its actually a proven fact that fat people tend to be inferior in intelligence so this doesn't explain why baseball is more intelligent than other sports. In fact, strangely enough, it seems to buck that trend.

    Good start to our discussion though. It was an excellent point to bring up.

    This is dumb because some of the smartest MLB players are black (Jason Hewyard, Hank Aaron, Carl Crawford for example). So no I dont think this holds as a credible reason.

    Since relief pitchers and backups dont get interviewed, you have no clue of knowing anything about them

    The reason why you believe such is that you immediately equate football players or basketball players as being unintelligent because you dont know who they are, nor do you follow the sports.

    I don't know why, but I just get the feeling that mlb players seem more grateful that they get to play the game then other sports like football or basketball. Even though I like both games.

    College football & basketball are tougher sports to be ready for year round than baseball.

    Why? They actually require players to be in top shape & practice something called "Plays"

    You can sit home for 4 months and come back to Baseball without missing a step.

    Ive already debunked the race argument. Some of the smartest players in the MLB are black. Also, you can even argue the smartest athlete from the 4 major sports is black (Grant Hill).

    So no. It has nothing to do with the NBA and NFL having a higher percentage of blacks.

    I think it comes down to the game. You have to smart to succeed in baseball. Where maybe you dont need as much athleticism to play baseball you must make up for in intelligence I think. So you dont see the dumb players making it to the MLB, while intelligence is a bit more irrelevant in the other sports and more intellectually inferior individuals slip through to the pros.

    That's my take on it. The dumb people are just weeded out in baseball the same way less athletic players are weeded out in football and basketball

    Im not gonna go around saying Alfonso Soriano when I've never really heard him speak very much and dont know much about him. That would be foolish. So of course Im gonna lean towards to players Im more familiar with when giving examples on smart black MLB players.

    Any idiot would realize that. Clearly it needs to be spelled out for you though.

    Its very true and very obvious.

    It does take more intelligence to play baseball vs. basketball and even football.

    Even the guys from the Dominican and oversea's seem much more intelligent than NFL/NBA players.

    Is it because it's a sport that requires significantly more intelligence in comparison to the other sports?

    Discuss


    Intelligence? Every single situation has a textbook way of responding to it. If there are runners on first and second etc... All they do in spring training is repetitions in the field of what might be the situation during the game. Zero improvisation. So I would argue baseball requires the least amount of intelligence.

    Soccer and hockey (and basketball to an extent) are all very free flowing and require constant improvisation. The players have to read and react the whole time. There are no plays, nor do they practice exactly what they will be doing in the game. They have to think the whole time and change strategy on the fly.

    This is why Europeans don't like baseball and despise american football.

    Really? Baseball requires more intelligence than football? What are you basing that on? That baseball requires stats? But football requires some serious tactics. Both are strategy games, but baseball is probably more poker like, while football is more like chess, at least from the coach's perspective. Yah, you probably don't need to be that smart to play a lineman, but how smart do you have to be to play RF?

    As for the race argument, there are plenty of dumb white baseball players too.

    I think it comes down to the game. You have to smart to succeed in baseball. Where maybe you dont need as much athleticism to play baseball you must make up for in intelligence I think. So you dont see the dumb players making it to the MLB, while intelligence is a bit more irrelevant in the other sports and more intellectually inferior individuals slip through to the pros.

    That's my take on it. The dumb people are just weeded out in baseball the same way less athletic players are weeded out in football and basketball
    Skill =/= Intelligence

    A welder only becomes as good by the amount of time he welds. It doesn't have any correlation to his IQ, but how skilled he becomes by repeating the same process. If not, "skilled workers" wouldnt appeal to the impoverished and under educated.

    The ability to re-produce such a skill requires a higher level of focus of the athlete. Notice how the best players in all sports themselves are the most focused on the field & off the field.
    A paradox.

    It probably isn't a black or white thing, just comes down to who works the hardest to be where they are. The most retarded players in any sports are mainly the ones who have always been catered to their whole life because they have some talent.
