Why is the baseball season so long?

The simplest reason for why baseball seasons are longer than other sports is because they can be. Baseball is not a particularly physically demanding sport. Basketball and hockey's 82 game seasons engender far more angst about the physical wear and tear on players than baseball's season which is twice as long.
