Baseball is known as America’s pastime. Baseball has been around since the mid-1850s when the baseball craze hit New York City. Soon baseball clubs were formed. The National League, founded in 1876, is still in existence today. Soon after, the American League formed. Many fans flock to baseball parks and stadiums throughout the United States and parts of the world. For those less interested in paying high tickets prices, spending a fortune on concession stand food and drinks, and fighting traffic to get in and out of the stadium, an alternative is watching baseball games in a bar. Baltimore has several bars that are welcoming to baseball fans.
