"Something that amuses and serves to make time pass agreeably" - Merriam-Webster
We don't live this baseball lifestyle because it's our job. We daydream while we're crammed in the swivel chair at work crunching the numbers on the latest TPS report. We're pondering the most subtle, yet obvious way to drop the bat after taking ball four and trotting to first. We're mulling over the the latest technique for smearing our eye-black (even if eye-black doesn't do anything).
It's the baseball lifestyle that keeps us going each and every workday. We're so ready for the men's league game that night. We might still be at work, but you know that plastic cone-cup is gonna be crushed up and dropped on the ground after we take our last swig of water for the day. Let's grab the car keys and get out of here.
Work is work. But this baseball lifestyle is our Pastime.
One last thing. Those butterflies you're getting when you throw on your hat to take the field...I would consider those "amusing" and "agreeable".
