In short, why are baseball players so delicate?

Professional baseball teams play 162 games per year while professional football teams only play 16 regular season games.

Baseball games are easy to reschedule. Some teams play each other as many as 16 times per year, so a missed game can be played as part of a double header.

In football. you play teams in your own division twice and play all other teams on your schedule only once. There simply is no realistic way to reschedule the games because of bad weather.

Do you remember when those really disastrous files struck California a few years ago? Rather than delay the Chargers football game, the moved it to Arizona. Scheduling differences are the main reason for the difference.
