"No me interesa practicar béisbol."
Translation:I'm not interested in playing baseball.
practicar can mean to practice, so why can't the answer be I'm not interested in practicing baseball?
07/08/18. According to www.spanishdict.com, "practicar" means "to practice" when meaning 'to train' generally or 'to practice' a religon. But with reference to sports, the correct translation is "to play." Here, though similar, the speaker's disinterest in baseball extends not to just practicing the sport, but also to playing it at all.
it seems if we are asked to learn these new words, which have similar meanings to other words, it would be good to start with the literal translation first. So practice instead of play.
