My past four summers have been almost completely consumed by baseball, so I don't really know what to do during a summer in which there is no baseball. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the cancellation of numerous summer leagues and MLB still unable to figure out labor negotiations, it looks like there will be drastically less baseball this year than in previous summers.
That has me wondering how I'll be spending a lot of my time this year. If you're in a similar boat, you might find yourself asking "What do I do in a summer with no baseball?" That's what I'm here to help with.
After a bit of research I've found that there are actually lots of fun summer activities that don't involve baseball, as weird as that may sound. And most of them are available pretty much anywhere, so this list can be applied no matter where you are in the world.
Things to do in a summer without baseball:
Now, if you're really missing baseball and you need some baseball-related activities, you can always watch some baseball movies, pull up some classic games on YouTube, or get a small group of friends together and play a pickup game.
I hope this list will help you out during a summer without baseball, but more than that, I hope we can return to normal next summer and have all the baseball we could possibly want.
