  • Football is meant to be played in the rain and snow. This is what my DH told me.For baseball, not sure why. Maybe poor visibilty?

  • they have to catch a ball i football too.

    football seems to be a game that really tests the players' determination.

    thus the military spartan boot camp like training. lol.

  • it's because if you play on a wet baseball diamond it will ruin the infield, same reason that you can't play professional baseball when it's raining. Football fields are more durable since they have the grass to protect them more and there for you can be on them when it rains.
