Make the paragraph below focus on comparison and contrast. Write about the similarities between the two things. Go on to write about the differences.

Baseball is a sport that many people enjoy. Some people prefer to watch it on television, while others buy tickets to see games in the stadium. Some elements of a game are the same no matter where it is seen.

From your question, what I think you are after is a list of ways that you can extend the introduction you have given to construct a comparison and contrast essay. I have included a link below that should help you with this question, as it will give you further guidance on how to write such an essay. However, here are some ideas that you might like to develop in your response.

Firstly, focusing on the similarities, you might want to focus on the way that, whether live or watched on TV, baseball is a sport that has a fixed system of rules and conduct. Secondly, you are able to watch the game and see the result either way.

However, there are also plenty of differences. Some would argue that it is much more convenient to watch a game from the comfort of your own house. You don't need to travel to the stadium or worry about the whether. You also don't need to buy expensive refershments or pay a lot of money for a seat. However, others would argue that part of watching a game of baseball is being part of the excitement of the match, and the way that being part of the crowd adds another dimension to the enjoyment.

I hope this gives you a few ideas of how to start. Good luck!
