The really good players go from high school to a few minor league games then to the pros.

No they don't. Let's look at the Kris Bryant example. Since you know he's the reigning MVP of the NL. He went to San Diego for 3 years. Was drafted #2 overall. Played a full season in the Minors, won the Minor League player of the year. Even after that played 2 more months in the Minors before being called up to the big club. Here's how it usually goes for the HSers that are drafted. They either A) don't show up to the club that drafts them and then go to college, or B) spend several years in Minor league ball working on their craft before going up to the big club, if they even make it that far. The NFL has a 7 round draft, and approximately 250 players drafted each year. The vast majority of which will make an NFL roster that year. Baseball has a 40 round draft with approximately 1200 players drafted each year where only 10% EVER see a major league roster.

I'm a football fan, and I love team celebrations b/c it's the ultimate team sport. And I too think baseball's "unwritten" rules about celebrations are stupid. I'm also a realist, and someone who believes in truth. It's much harder to hit a HR off of major league pitching, than it is to do anything else in sports (save for a hole in one in Golf, which is more about luck than anything). I want you to try an experiment for me. Find a long tape measure and measure 60 ft 6'in. Put a baseball on the ground. Then walk back to your starting pointing and look for the baseball. Now imagine that coming at you at 105 mph (an Aroldis Chapman fastball). Now understand it's already too late to swing b/c it took less than half a second for the ball to get to the catcher and it took that long or longer to locate the ball with your eyes, and for your brain to tell your muscles to swing. Hitting major league pitching is stupid hard. That's why HRs almost always come off of pitching mistakes. And as far as a 10 mph difference, (and really it's closer to 15-20 mph) that's the equivalent of 15 feet per second difference. Major League Pitching is a full 25% faster than your best estimations, and that doesn't even begin to look at the difference in movement.

I'd say no because is isn't simulating a sexual act, just dancing.

Doug Flutie ran in a TD at 42 years old, I would think that would prove it isn't the hardest thing to do. Many player score touchdowns without even being touched. The hardest thing to do in the NFL is probably play QB. A missed assignment or great blocking would allow many of us to score a TD. However, none of us are going to be competent QBs. Bo Jackson struck out 33% of the time playing baseball and Deion Sanders led the league in caught stealing one year (while only swiping 38 bases).

If you are an athlete football is a much easier sport to succeed in except QB/K/P. In baseball you don't have to be as good of an athlete to be a good player but it certainly helps.

Lebron James widely considered the best professional athlete on the planet and a guy who could be GOAT played right out of high school.

Well shaking your butt and doing hip thrusts are a little different.

Bryce Harper still played over 100 games in the minors before his debut.

The last person to debut at 17 was in 1957 Laughing

Basketball is obviously a much easier transition. There are countless examples of NBA stars who came straight out of high school.

Hitting a HR? Laughing Yes it's statistically less frequent, but hitting a ball with a bat is the only skill they train for. A QB, WR, or RB has multiple potential assignments and the most physically impressive athletes in the world trying to stop them.

Technically speaking, any type of dance stems from courtship display, so all dancing could be considered sexual from an evolutionary perspective.

With all those extra assignments and less skill required in baseball, you'd think they'd want to be paid more than those inferior baseball players. NFL players are the least paid of the 4 major sports for a reason; it's not an overly skilled game. It is undoubtedly the most physical. But skilled? No.

BJ Raji has a rushing touchdown. That's how easy it is. Saying it's the hardest thing is sports is absurd. Find me any article on the internet where someone agrees.

So if I'm dancing alone in the shower...? Never mind I guess you are right.
