Similarly in the UK, Cricket is probably the best sport covered on radio.
The slow pace of the game allows for some wonderful discussion between the commentators, and they tend to be able to paint a more vivid picture of the action as opposed to radio commentaries on faster paced sports.
Baseball is the soundtrack for a beautiful summer day. Grilling burgers, doing yard work or just sitting outside doing nothing. You're not cooped up in the house bound to a television for 3+ hours. You picture everything in your mind: the announcers give you the sights and sounds of being there - without you having to spend money you really don't have - to enjoy for free.
American Football and soccer are also good sports to hear over the airwaves. (Soccer can be more fun if you find a game in a different language; here in the Chicago area I can find them in Spanish or Polish. Just know your numbers and some simple phrases and it's easy to pick up.)
College basketball is okay. Not a pro basketball guy, so I don't know a lot of those. Hockey always sounds exciting when listening to Pat Foley of the Blackhawks, but it's really fast.
There are very few things more serene than sitting out on the porch on a warm summer evening and listening to a baseball game on the radio. Even now, with all the technological advances we have, that's one of the more perfect ways to spend a night.
