Denoting Your Baseball Fandom

If you’re the kind of baseball fan who likes to let everyone else know just how huge of a baseball nerd you are, you’re probably always looking for new ways to solidify your fandom. That way, no matter what competitor comes along knocking, challenging you to show your stuff and your support for America’s pastime, you’ll be prepared for him. The following are suggestions to keep your dominance as the super fan of baseball intact, so that you can show off your love for baseball without anyone else even coming close to your obsession with this great sport.

Pull up those socks


Real baseball fans know that it’s all about going old school, and nothing screams old school baseball quite the way high socks do. If you’re out there on the field playing a pick-up game, be sure to roll up those pants and hike up those socks all the way to your knees, just the way the legends did, and just the way superstars like Alex Rodriguez do now. If you want to take it to the next level, consider putting those high socks on even when wearing shorts. The fools may think you’re trying to be like Urkel, but you’ll know at heart that you’re a baseball nerd, not a glasses wearing one.

Don’t waste your free time

If you’re caught spending the off-season in front of the television watching basketball, critics are going to call you lame and suggest that maybe your baseball fandom isn’t quite what you made it out to be. To silence said critics, don’t spend any of your free time pursuing tasks that don’t increase your level of baseball support. For example, instead of working out at the gym, you can try heading to the batting cages and facing off against a fast pitch baseball pitching machine. It may not be quite like facing Cliff Lee or Mariano Rivera, but then again, you also probably won’t go down swinging 1-2-3.

Go all the way

Even if you’re a Baltimore Orioles or Washington Nationals fan, just because your team has no chance of making the playoffs most years doesn’t mean you should stop following the sport the second the playoffs start (or your team’s eliminated from the playoffs). After all, a true baseball fan loves the sport over all else, including the team, so you’ll want to prove your transcendence by watching through the entire World Series, just to say you didn’t miss a second of any important game.
