Since I moved to an AL city 6 years ago I have attended a grand total of one professional baseball game. Previously I lived in a city of one of the worst NL teams and, even though I was not a fan of that team, I attended 4-5 games a year. AL baseball bores me to tears.
I lived in the Bay Area for 20 years and I can tell you I gravitated towards the NL game 90% of the time, all while the A's had the better park, the better team with the bigger names.
I know what I like and I know it ain't the DH game
