1 of 7

As an avid baseball fan one thing that always gets me shaking my head is when non-baseball fans say how boring and slow the game is. They say baseball can’t match the “wow” factor of the NBA or the speed of the NFL. While it is true that those sports do have great athletes that can drop your jaws, I must say don’t sell the American pastime short.

These are the five players in Major League Baseball that you can’t afford to miss seeing at least once this season.
