If you actually want to see the whole game TV is where it is at. For the atmosphere you go to the game.
Maybe for hockey. Never had an issue seeing a whole baseball game.
Being at a game 7 is truly like nothing else. Worth every cent.

Other parts:
-Lack of a clock means that literally anything can happen. I've seen walk off grand slams. That doesn't happen in sports on a clock with 1 minute left and down by X.
Are you saying a clock in football doesn't make it more exciting. The most exciting part of football is the two minute drill or in some cases 1:13  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

400 feet away you are going to tell me if it was catch or not?

That depends on how close the game is.
Baseball allows teams to come back from greater deficits than other sports would with a minute to go. Just look at WS Game 7 last year or the CLE ALDS game 2 victory this year.

Another bonus: Everything in this world is on the clock. Except baseball. That's something special

The number one complaint about baseball is the games are to long. So no clock also has it drawbacks. I have seen football teams come back from 30+ points. I have also seen teams score 14 points in less than a minute. Ever happen in baseball?  :)

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Clock or no clock, nothing beats sudden death OT.
Live forever or die trying.

That's definitely part of it.

Other parts:
-Lack of a clock means that literally anything can happen. I've seen walk off grand slams. That doesn't happen in sports on a clock with 1 minute left and down by X.

-More natural tension and excitement. No phony announcer screaming to get the decibel levels higher. It seems to happen more naturally in baseball playoffs and that's even more impressive given that it's outdoors.
Hockey in OT is timeless it could go for hours or be over in seconds. Nothing beats hockey with this. You could even make an argument that a game seven of a conference championship in overtime is better than any other sport.

Like a 4 1/2 hour 9 inning game 5? Things like that are bad for the game.

Who is your favorite hockey team?

Rangers, so yes, I've seen it (Stepan 2 years ago), and there's nothing like SD OT, but that wasn't in subject line. Dropping puck for Game 7 vs first pitch, I take the latter.
