  1. Just a quick question:
    In the sentence, “I don’t play baseball often” you translated it as “No juego al beisbol a menudo”. Why do you use ‘al’ before beisbol? I do not see the word ‘the’ before baseball in the question.

  2. In Spain, you must use the following formula:
    jugar + a + (activity/sport/game)

    It is generally accepted to be the correct way.
    And it is “al béisbol” instead of “el béisbol” because “a + el” becomes “al”.

    In Latin America you can leave out the “a” or you can use it. But in that case people will leave out the “el,la,los,las” before the activities/games/sports.
