I saw a bit on ESPN with Buck Showalter. He claimed that he times some
players. For most, runnig through first was faster but for a few, the
dive was faster. But you have to dive fairly late --- not the kind of
head first dive into second. Takes a lot of practice, apparently, for
the dive to be faster.

What rock have you been living under? Football has been the national
pasttime for the last four decades at least.
Just look at the attendance at high school and college football games
across the nation.
You've got high school football games that get 50,000+ in attendance.
baseball gets no where near that.
