Not only is it real, it is effectively created by the lenses you can access. Unless people feel like throwing away resolution and cropping like hell for no practical reason. Oh no, it's the distance! Guess what's going to dominate your distance choices. You aren't moving mountains, trees, buildings and the like. You aren't telling that group of players to repostion themselves for your convenience. You probably aren't soldering on a different sized image sensor in your body. So guess what, the lens you've slapped on is your biggest determining factor.

Exactly.

Maintaining the foreground subject size in the frame (the baseball team in this case) with different focal lengths requires a change of distance.
