Question about sports on cruises

I have little cruise experience, but from the one I went on I wouldn't have been able to bring my baseball glove to have a catch. For baseball fans and players out there this is my glove (https://www.baseballbargains.com/shop/wilson-a2000-ja27gm-11-5-in-baseball-glove-a20rb17ja27gm/. Anyway, whenever I go on vacation I bring my glove just so I can have a catch to just relax and enjoy my time off. I definitely want to do more cruising, but also want to be able to throw the ball around. Just curious if you guys know of any cruises that have open areas with little people around that would make a great spot to have a catch. And Preferably my destination would be somewhere warm, so I can enjoy the sun as well on my cruise. Thanks!!

How about an all inclusive in the Dominican Republic. You're guaranteed to find someone down there to throw a ball around.

Don't know if your going to find too many ships with areas open enough.  The Grand Princess did on deck 16 port and starboard most aft.

 

And for cruising to somewhere warm, the Grand Princess would be perfect.  Certain times of the year it does trips to the Mexican Riviera, Southern California, and Hawaii.

 

and further more

 

Grand Princess' home is pier 27 in San Francisco.  Down the street from there is where the SF  Giants play.  So before or after your cruise you can catch a game at AT&T park.  

 

I've go your perfect holiday planned for you.  Catch a game at AT&T.  Hope on the Grand Princess down the street.  After your cruise catch another game before going home.

I have not been on any ship that has enough open room for a game of catch.   I can also see a cruise line not allowing it for safety reasons.   The only possible place I could think of would be if the basketball court is not being used.  It may also be difficult to find other guest that pack a baseball glove.

 

For warm,  the Caribbean islands but watch the time of the year for storms and humid weather or a Pacific coast cruse will have good weather a lot of the year in So Cal and Mexico.

I don't think that any ship will allow you to throw around a baseball on board.  Now if it were ping pong, you'd have a better chance.
