Wellll... to be fair, playing baseball in a fantasy camp is only partly virtual. You're actually playing baseball. You're just doing it in a location enhanced by what goes on there during other times.

Playing baseball, in every case, is something of a virtual activity anyways, of course. As are all sports.

But, taking that as a truism, I don't think fantasy baseball camp is much more virtual than "real" baseball.

That being said, the fact that immersing oneself in a largely representational activity like cheering for your home team is more socially acceptable than engaging in fantasy, sci-fi or other types of "game" games has always bugged me. It's happening less, now, of course. 7 million WOW fans can't be wrong, eh?
