Enter the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Baseball Episode]], in which for ''some'' reason, the heroes participate in a baseball game. It might be in order to save the world, save the town or just waste time. Whatever the reason, it's common, and shows up in all kinds of works...

** In fact, it's surprising that [=DS9=] didn't have a BaseballEpisode sooner, because Sisko's obsession with baseball goes back to the pilot, where Sisko uses baseball to explain the concept of linear time to the wormhole aliens. The only real in-universe reasoning is that by the 24th century, baseball has almost died out and is only kept alive by enthusiasts like Sisko and on a few distant colony worlds, so it's not as mainstream as in other examples.
