I think April is the best sports month of the year. April has the NCAA Final Four, start of MLB season, NFL Draft, NBA playoffs, NHL playoffs, The Masters, and Wrestle Mania. That is all in a span of 30 days.

Baseball is America's past time, and people get really excited when baseball season is starting. Baseball is one exciting sport to watch.

Men's and women's college basketball season ends in April, and teams that are in get really excited—fans, gamblers, students, etc. People fill out brackets and enter pools, and they try to see who gets the most games right, and win money or some other prize.

The Final Four and the National Championship is usually played in a football dome, to get as many fans as possible to attend.

The NFL Draft can be exciting because people love to see what players their team gets. The team that had the worst record from the previous season gets the first pick in the draft, and the team that wins the Super Bowl picks last in each round.

The NFL Draft impacts different teams' chances at winning the Super Bowl, and whether a team is good or not. The draft tries to help the bad teams get better.

The NBA and NHL playoffs are big to basketball and hockey fans. Every round, the team that wins four games in a series advances to the next round. Eight teams per conference make it to the playoffs.

I think April is the best sports month in America.
