I thought I might as well download the files BobbyTheHacker so graciously uploaded in comments and reload them here. I haven't played this SIms forever so I have no idea what level of update they are at, but at least they will be there for anyone still playing to try.

Hi all. I was getting severely annoyed with my many sims playing catch and tossing the football behind my back, then packing it off to bed by 7pm with barely a fun gain. This is a global mod (I removed it at one point in testing and the behaviors stayed, so be warned). First it raises the fun gain by quite some bit. With this mod an empty fun bar will be raised to full by football or baseball in a little over two hours. Second, I removed the energy loss so the only loss you will see is from the natural passing of time.

I used it all day today with no problems, so it seems to work more than fine. There are a couple of small quirks tho, just to be aware before you install it. Although I searched high and low thru the bhav files I couldn't find what is making the sims stop playing either. It seems like they stop when any of their motives besides fun goes below halfway IF their fun bar is full. Also if anything else gets their attention when it's full they seem to stop immediately. But IF all their motives are high they keep playing until something drops, so if they are in a very good mood they do play for some time but it hasn't been a problem for me at all, they usually get distracted by something else. But it's still a vast improvement since when they stop their fun bar is full and energy hasn't plummeted more than normal.

I'm actually happy when my sims go off to do either activity now since they are getting more gain than loss, instead of the moronic way Maxis set it up (always gotta put in socials you would rather your sims didn't do) other than the hike they sometime take to pick a spot. At least it's an alternative to no autonomy mods which I was about to resort to.

You would need Free Time for the football mod, and Seasons for baseball. so you can use either/and/or depending.

Hope this helps some sims get out there and toss that pigskin and hardball!
