How to Stay Up to Date with American Baseball When You Live in Asia
Dec 27, 2017

One of the best parts of living in the 21st Century is that we now live in a global community. Yes, we still have national borders and there is still strife among the nations, but we can hop on a jet today and by tonight be halfway around the world. Because of this, many people live and work in other countries, which provides a good income, but also keeps them missing home a good bit of the time. This is especially true of baseball season and why Americans have learned how to stay up to day with American baseball when living in Asia. How do they do it? Here are just a few ways!

Satellite Television

Today, we take satellite television for granted. However, there was a time when few people had the pleasure of being able to catch broadcasts from around the globe. Back in the 1990s, satellite providers didn’t offer the mini dishes we have today and only a small portion of the population could afford those mammoth dishes, typically ground mounted, that we saw in the ‘better neighborhoods.’ Now, satellite is cost effective no matter where you live and dishes are inexpensive and easy to mount atop almost any roof.

Gaming Sites

One of the most popular ways of keeping up with American baseball is to join online gaming sites where you can find a baseball league simulator that allows you to be any player on any team and follow along as the season progresses. It’s a fun way to keep baseball alive in your heart, even if you must get the news in more traditional ways. Gaming sites are even better than disks played at home simply because players can be updated as teams change their rosters due to such things as trades and injuries. All it takes is having the latest Xbox and an Internet connection and you can almost hear that iconic “Let’s Play Ball!”

Social Media

Then, there’s always Facebook and Twitter. If you have an active account, you can follow your favorite team day by day throughout the season. Set up your account with a news feed that alerts you when there is any activity at all in your favorite team or within the league. Most followers subscribe to mobile social media newsfeeds, so they will know, in real time, anytime something of interest occurs.

While American football has overtaken baseball in popularity within the past few decades, it is still an All-American sport that speaks to the heart of every little boy aspiring to be a pro-player when he grows up. Men were raised on the sport and will love it until the day they die. There’s just something so American about baseball and that’s why we follow it, no matter where we go or what we do. Football may be in the driver’s seat at this point in time, but baseball will always be the American sport. That’s something you can bet on and always come out a winner.
