It was made up by Native Americans. It's like hockey but instead of a stick w/ a blade, there is a stick w/ a net and there is a ball instead of a puck. Also, there are more people on the field in lacrosse and there is an "out of bounds". Everything else is pretty similar.

i just find some rules stupid, that's all... it seems to me that slashing is encouraged, that the team closest to the ball gets it when the ball goes out of bounds (as opposed to the team that didn't put it out of bounds...) and I think it has a shot-clock....

Lacrosse is like hockey, meets football, meets basketball, meets boxing. I know I used to play it in HS

Running back Jim Brown was a great lacrosse player while at Syracuse.

i don't like it either. some stupid rules and if i wanted to watch a sport that i couldn't follow the path of the ball or puck i'd watch hockey for the fights. :-D

Edit: not to mention that lacrosse, like almost all other sports, can't compare to baseball for a couple of reasons. baseball is a sport where size helps but is not necessary and speed isn't always required (ie pujols, but being one of the best hitters on the planet helps him out). most importantly, baseball is one of the few sports that actually tests your mind almost as much as your body. with so many situations possible, it is imperative that a player knows his job on the next play and can make split second decisions to get the runner out or lay off that slider about to drop off the table. and i'll conclude with a quote, "you cant sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line to run the last couple minutes off the clock. you've got to throw the ball over the god damned plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest sport of them all"
