In brief: No!

If you are having surgery, you will in no way feel like doing anything that day, let alone going to a baseball game.
Even doubtful that you could do that the following day. You need to plan at least a few days of just taking it easy after your surgery.

In brief: This

This depends on your surgery and the time of day but seems fairly ambitious.
If you are having general anesthesia for your surgery, which is the case for most laparoscopy, you will likely still feel a sleepy and groggy for the remainder of the day. Many people also have problems with nausea after anesthesia which can take 24-48h to improve. Additionally, you may have some referred pain in your shoulder from the gas used to insufflate the abdomen during the operation. While laparoscopic surgery has reduced recovery times as well as post-operative pain it is still surgery and does cause discomfort as well as physical insult to the body. It is true that physically you might be able to get to the game (assuming you were an early case and the operation was short), but you may not enjoy yourself. Better to rest and recover to enjoy another game in the future. Speak with your surgeon regarding the intensity of the surgery and their thoughts on your ability to attend the game.
