Abstract: This paper demonstrates a game informatical analysis of sports to examine if its rules are reasonably established for maintaining the attractiveness. It focuses mainly on the baseball and game refinement measure is employed for the assessment. The baseball leagues from several countries that conducted from 2000 to 2015 are analyzed. The results obtained show that game refinement values of baseball are around 0.065. These values are slightly lower than other sophisticated sports such as soccer and basketball. Under the assumption that game refinement measure indicates a comfortable degree of game outcome uncertainty or a good balance between skill and chance、 a tentative conclusion is that baseball has slightly more skill-based weight than soccer and basketball. It implies that baseball may be sufficiently sophisticated to attract people but may be of slightly less popularity than soccer and basketball. Possible enhancements are discussed.
