I've long had this strange fascination for baseball. I have no idea why. I've bought and read books about it (The Art of Fielding, which is now one of my favorite books, and Don DeLillo's Underworld, which I have yet to read), and yesterday I started watching Ken Burns' documentary series on the subject, which I really like so far.

But. I still have no idea what I'm doing. I watched a couple of youtube-videos to explain the rules, which I think I understand, but now what next? How do I start watching the games? (Where do I watch them, since I'm in Norway and no channel has them over here.) How do I know which team to cheer for and which to hate? Basically, how do I get into this sport that I'm fascinated by and really like?

This might be a little off-topic, but I hope there are some baseball-nuts here who'd like to help me. All help, links to websites and videos and explanations and just, anything, will be taken to heart and appreciated.

It is hard to get into something new and sprawling as this.
